some peachfront conure habitat near loreto, beni, bolivia (the barba azul "blue-throated macaw" nature reserve area)

Near Loreto, Beni Department, Bolivia, mid-April, 2011: I thought the true Peachfront Conure fan would like a look at some of the habitat where this beautiful bird, known as Peachfront Parakeet to birders, lives and thrives.

I grabbed this shot by sticking my el-cheapo Kodak Easy Share camera out of the Blue-Throated Macaw van. In fact, this road was probably less than a football field away from the place where we walked in to view the Blue-Throated Macaw habitat. It was there that we walked past an eye-level termite mound on a tree trunk that the local guide told me had held a breeding pair of Peachfront Parakeets. Alas, they had already finished for the year and departed the nest, although I could still see the pair hanging out higher in the trees. This is a hot, humid, tropical lowland habitat. The area floods frequently, so it's more practical for the cowboys to work from horseback than from motor vehicles. In fact, here the local guide first took us to the ranch house to borrow some rubber boots before we headed down the trail.

Oh yah, and of course we also observed the critically endangered Blue-Throated Macaw -- an intact family including the parents who flew in together to feed the three scrappy babies. The family was using an artificial nestbox on a private ranch.
