News from the Loro Parque Fundación


by Dr Matthias Reinschmidt, Curator, Loro Parque Fundación

By the end of August, 1006 young parrots had been banded, so to date we have a better result than the previous year. As in any collection, there are species that surprise us with their breeding success, but also other ones for which we hope in vain for a good breeding success. For example, our Hawk-headed Parrots (Deroptyus accipitrinus), had no young last year but this year, we can already report six chicks.

The “Lear´s Macaw (Anodorhynchus leari) Year” 2010 in the Loro Parque Fundación continues its course beautifully, with three siblings in the hand-rearing station already with blue feathers, and two other young birds of the same age who are thriving perfectly with their adoptive parents, a pair of Green-winged macaws (Ara chloroptera). One of the Lear’s pairs is raising two chicks for the first time on its own, while the other Lear´s Macaw pair has just produced the first egg of the second clutch, which will also stay with the parents, to allow this already experienced and proven breeding pair the chance to raise the chicks naturally.
