Parrots Park in Colombia

Postby Pajarita » Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:44 am

I wanted to share this with you because I KNOW you will enjoy it. There is a VERY small port town on the Amazon river in Colombia, it's called Leticia and, although it's very small, it has a park called Parque Santander smack in the middle of it. But the park has had a new name for years now and everybody calls it "El parque de los loros" -the parrots park- because, every evening, several flocks with hundreds of individuals each come out of the Amazonian jungle, where they spend the day, to roost in the trees in the park. The locals think it's because the birds know they will be safe from predators there and I am sure they are right because we all know how smart parrots are! And, the daily event has become so well known that tourists go to this little town just to watch it and which, in turn, has created a daily evening parade of vendors, local families and tourists who gather for it! Check out the incredible din they make!

A video of the birds flying overhead:

And a video of the birds shown by a tour guide promoting it:

In the second video, you can clearly see the 'parrots' are canary-winged parakeets so I am giving you a link to the species:
