The breeding season of the endangered yellow-headed amazon has begun in Guatemala. Project participants (parrot rangers) were able to complete installing 10 nest boxes in one of the project communities in preparation for this. None of the nest boxes are active so far.
The parrot rangers have found 11 active nests in trees in two different areas so far. An important milestone for the project is that this is the first year that the rangers are climbing trees to see if nests are active and to monitor the chicks.
Six of the people from this project are traveling to a workshop on the south coast of Guatemala later this year and they will be presenting at the workshop (One Earth Conservation has a second project on the south coast that focuses on the yellow-naped amazon parrot). This workshop will be the first time that participants from both projects in Guatemala, who are working with two different endangered amazon species, will be able to share information and learn from each other.
Dr. LoraKim Joyner is traveling to the project site in early May to review all active nests and the project as a whole.
