RARE BIRD SAID SEEN IN EAST TEXAS (Report from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department-) TYLER, May —Regional headquarters of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has learned that a rare, almost non-existent, ivory-billed woodpecker was. seen in East Texas by Mrs. J. McCratic of Longview. Once common in East Texas, the bird has become very rare, and some ornithologists believe it to be extinct. Probable reasons for the gradual disappearance-of tithe bird are the destruction of its habitat, inability to adapt to changing conditions, a restricted diet, and wanton shooting of the species for its ivory bill. Past reports have noted such sightings, only to find that the observer has mistaken the similar pileated for the ivory-billed species. BRIEF REPORT ON SHORT MEXICAN TRIP IN APRIL by Hardin Craig, Jr. One place to see wild parrots is at the Rio Corona, about 20 miles north of Ciudad Victoria on Highway 101 to Brownsville. If approaching from the north, don't stop,at the high level bridge over the river but go on to a turn-off between the 29th and 28th kilometer posts. There is a sign, facing south, which says "Parque Nacional. Rio Corona." Turn sharp right, almost reversing your course, and go along a.rock and gravel road (not too bad) for about.two miles.. The trees get bigger and bigger, and you coriie to a parking and picnic area on fttti Ljiuiks of the tropical river which flows through this arid country. There are great Gypresstrees growing out of the river banks, and toward evening at least these trees are hanging full of green parrots (the Red-crowned type was the only one we saw), all screaming at once. ._".'"
