another parrot that was high on my list (like all parrots  :lol: )
These parrots are endangered with habitat loss, through logging and agriculture being the main reasons.
I had done many trips to photograph them, but never had much luck. Last October, I went to a place to look for other birds and bumped into a great spot for these guys! Amazing how things happen sometimes.
Here's one of the images I got.
