Piņon Forest - Prime Thick-billed Parrot habitat

The juniper and pine forests of Chihuahua are disappearing at an alarming rate, due to illegal logging, but efforts are being made to work with local ejidos (communally-owned farmlands) to initiate birding and eco-tourism into the area. This would provide a lucrative alternative to logging of the forests, and perhaps may one day contribute to the salvation of some of the last examples of this kind of habitat.
