The reproductive season of the blue-fronted amazon and other psittacine birds at the Pantanal is about to begin! With this in mind, Vandir and Veronica went to Pantanal for another field trip. They inspected every nest cavity recorded over the 18 years of project, and maintenance was provided for all the cavities that needed some repair done, such as flooded ones, with eggshells and debris, or with little or no substrate. While proper water drainage was provided for some, woodchip was added to others. This way we ensure a nice nest bedding for the future couple to lay their eggs and raise the chicks. It also helps us to monitor the cavities and follow up the reproductive success of these species.
Well, as you see, we keep doing our job of helping out the parrots! If you also want to give them a hand, please let us know! They will surely be grateful!!
