Provide artificial nesting sites for parrots
A replicated study in 2005 at a tropical forest site and nearby ranches in Colombia (Tovar Martinez 2009) studied a subset of the nest boxes used in Quevedo et al. 2006 and found that indigo-winged parrots Hapalopsittaca fuertesi used 13 of 120 nest boxes provided. A total of 39 eggs were laid, 32 (82%) hatched (the remaining seven were infertile) and 25 chicks (78% of those that hatched) fledged. Overall, 10 (91%) nests in boxes successfully fledged one or more chick. The boxes were of the same design as those in Quevedo et al. 2006.
