Santa Marta Parakeet palm fronds for seedlings of the same species-for planting as habitat for the Critically Endangered yellow-eared parrot- in the annual Semana Santa (week of Saints) is a particularly good one. “Pyrrhura viridicataoccupies its first nest-box in a Wax Palm Ceroxylon ceriferumaround 20 feet above the ground
In May we installed 48 artificial nest-boxes at theEl Dorado Nature Reservein the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
The Santa Marta Parakeet (Pyrrhura viridicata)occupied its first nest-box which was installed in a Wax Palm (Ceroxylon ceriferum)20 feet above the ground in an open cattle-grazing area adjacent to the reserve.
The box was occupied by four individuals (presumably two pairs) which guarded the nest, two chicks hatched four days ago and there are still two eggs left. Our field staff were surprised at such a quick use of the nest-box, having believed that the breeding season had finished in April/May when several groups of juveniles were recorded in the foraging areas.
