Juvenile Red-masked parakeet discovered in forest July 19, 2013. Categories: Fauna, Important bird area, new discovery

BIG NEWS! Kevin Vaca, who is Field Operation Manager Uver Vaca’s cousin, discovered a juvenile Red-masked parakeet in the forest last week! These birds, which are listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Redlist, are often captured and kept as pets. The bird found was too young to fly, and had most likely fallen out of its nest. The upside to the situation is it means that Red-masked parakeets are breeding in the area, further cementing our status as an Important Bird Area.
