Great Green Macaws and Azuero Parakeets in Cerro Hoya, a report by Kees Groenendijk
From monday 6 December until thursday 9 December, Gwen, Beatriz, Angel, Michael, Joe, David, Juan, Loes and myself were working in the buffer zone of Cerro Hoya National Park near Flores (on the farm of Juan Velazques—he of Azuero Parakeet fame). We were busy placing artificial nes tboxes for Great Green Macaws, a project implemented by Fundación Avifauna. During these four days in the Cerro Hoya buffer zone we saw 15 Great Green Macaws on Monday, two on Wednesday and 16 on Thursday. We also saw a group of about 12 Azuero Parakeets on Wednesday.
