Discovery of millions of colorful parrots in Argentina

The largest colony of parrots has been discovered in the southern desert of Patagonia, Argentina, with more than 37,000 nests or homes in the hills of El Condor, home to tens of millions of colorful parrots.

These parrots like to live in tunnel houses. Thus a house can be about ten feet or three meters deep. That is why they are also called tunnel digging parrots who like to build houses on soft clay (sandstone) hills.

When these parrots with green wings and white circles around their eyes fly over the oceans, the sky fills them. Although it is the largest population of parrots, it is in constant decline and in dire need of conservation. The nutritional needs of beautiful parrots are declining rapidly, surpassing those of the Amazon and other regions. They have to fly three hours to get food from their nests. Some seeds and berries are found at such a distance that parrots also feed their young. According to German experts, food is getting further away from them.

On the other hand, the survival of these mute animals is also threatened by large numbers of human intervention and tourists. The perpetrators keep coming here.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), because of their beautiful colorful wings, they are caught and sold illegally, and they are rapidly losing population due to the global mafia. International experts have called for the protection of these animals.
