Roelant,

Wow, congratulations. I wish we were there to help follow the sightings for you.

We have learned from our flock that their communications travel much farther than what we humans can even imagine. 1.5 Km may not be too far for Macaws to hear each other. We will keep positive thoughts for your search.


Wishing you all the luck,

Harry

Hi Roelant,

I’ve been trying to get to your website to read your reports and I haven’t been able to bring it up.  Any idea why?  I’ve very anxious to read about your babies!

Hi Loretta,

Good to hear from you. Unfortunately our website was digged. Which means we got 8000 visitors in an hour. My provider had to pull the plug on it to keep their server stable. We are now working to resolve this issue.

Cheers,

Roelant

Thanks Harry,

It would not seem that far and under “natural circumstances” their sound would have reached the youngster. Unfortunately the macaws are right in the centre of town and there is a lot of ambient noise coming from traffic to block their communications. I hoped that in the early morning when traffic is light this would be resolved but it did not.

The chick was last seen Saturday. It has been wondering far and wide but avoiding the city centre.

It has been separated for its parents for over a week and we fear the worst.

The other chick is doing ok. Accompanying its parent to and from the roost and getting flying lessons. Very endearing to witness. Toos and Nape have not had youngsters fledge ever or at least in 17 years. Their joy is tangible.

Cheers,

Roelant

Roelant,

Thanks so much…I was finally able to read what happened.  Is there any news on the lost little one?  The whole thing is just awful.

No news since last Saturday. We fear the worst. There is a slight chance the parents found it and are hiding it somewhere in a tree to recuperate. The whole town was looking for it so it is odd that sightings ended so abruptly.

But we should be realistic.

Cheers,

Roelant

Dear Sir:

My name is Ismael Gerli Champsaur. I am the founder of Panama Parrot Foundation, where we take care of all unwanted or mistreated parrots.

In Panama you may still see flying in the city , large bundles of Panama Amazons as well as prrolets.

Not often , but I have also seen macwas flying close to the city or at Gatun Lake in the middle of the Panama Canal.

Please visit our temporary page at http://www.panamaparrots.org or send a message to http://www.gerlico.com

Thanks

Ismael Gerli
