Immerse yourself in the raucous sounds of a flock of Red-lored Parrots. Found from Mexico to Venezuela, these bright green birds with red around the eyes are monogamous and loyal to each other. Their popularity in the pet trade along with habitat loss, has caused pressure on their wild populations in some areas. Even though captive bred birds are readily available and make much better companion birds than wild captured birds, over 55,000 Red-lored parrots have been traded in the past 25 years. If you buy a Red-lored parrot make sure you are not getting one that has been removed from the wild.
These birds were recorded near the Lapa Rios eco-lodge on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica.
