A couple of months ago I wrote about the Large Macaw family. They are easy to recognize as they are colorful and noisy large birds. Today I like to write about a smaller family: Parrots.
Just like the Large Macaws, parrots are also social birds, living and foraging in large noisy groups. But unlike the Large Macaws they aren't easy to spot. Thanks to their 'camouflaged' uniform it took me years to identify some of the parrots. Since they have mastered being 'one' with the leaves, I was 'forced' to train both my eye sight and hearing.
As I am still in training, I shall write about some of the parrots I was able to identify, photograph and recognize:
Identifying these parrots was time consuming for me. Especially when they were playing games with me by hiding between the leaves or by flying away quickly. But it is also a great challenge to discipline myself to keep on going. A challenge I am willing to accept.
I'll keep you posted!
