Welcome to WildHub, Ninying! Would you share some of what you've learned studying African grey parrots?

Hi Lara, 

Thanks for welcoming me. What I have learned so far regarding the African grey parrots. I will start with the social aspect. The community members had traditions which they did with the red tails of the parrots which was quite interesting to listen to, they also hold the birds to high esteem around the communityity because as they said it helps tell them time and given the parrots additative nature faced with danger, they said it saves them too when in their farmlands. Just to name a few.

Ecologically, the grey parrots turn to visit and roost in particular clearings in the Lobeke National Park. They use the mixed vegetation for feeding and shelter mostly not nesting; rather they turn to nest away from the clearing. and they come from neighbouring countries like The Congo Republic and Central Africa Republic to roos in the park. why i want to study theirmovement patterns in order to know their habitat of prefernce  and areas where they frequent as well as where they are vulnerable in order to provide appropraite reccommendations for their protection within the park, given they are still been harvested in large numbers from within the park. For this particular objective I am still looking for additional fundings to get more trackers for the birds. I recentlly got Rufford Foundation grant for a start as well as Idlewild equipment grant :)
