Par­rot de­cline cause for con­cern

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

A cen­sus con­ducted last year by the Loro Par­que Fun­da­cion has con­firmed that the Vinea­ceous-breasted Ama­zon, a South Amer­i­can par­rot species, is en­dan­gered. Al­though the 3,133 birds recorded by the sur­vey team ex­ceeded Birdlife In­ter­na­tional’s pre­vi­ous es­ti­ma­tion of 2,650 in­di­vid­u­als, the pop­u­la­tion is still very re­duced and frag­mented, caus­ing con­cerns for the sur­vival of the species.
