I've lived with Peachfront Conures Aratinga aurea for 30 years. I've bred 'em, trained 'em, even visited Bolivia to observe them in the wild. For more about me, click right here.

dipped on the peachfront conure for northern argentina
Quick update: As you may know, the peachfronted conure/peachfronted parakeet is pretty rare in northern Argentina, although in theory it has occurred there. I got the impression that my friend had never seen it there. When we were in the right habitat (humid, even flooded wetlands, with some occasional trees), I kept a lookout but never saw even one of the right termite nests on the trees...so I wasn't too surprised that I didn't find the species.
We were mostly chasing raptors, so I won't talk too long about my trip on this site, but if you'd love to follow the story, including our big day with Orange-breasted Falcon, you are welcome to stop by my personal diary. Maybe start right here on the page that covers our big day of discoveries, including the first active Swallow-tailed Kite nest site in Argentina.
