We took a 6-hour bus from Puerto Madryn (Chubut) to Viedma (Rio Negro) to wait 12 hours in the bus stop park surrounded by street dogs. We had to then shove 3-4 people in 5 taxis with all our backpacks & gear to a train station for a 12-hour “Harry Potter Hogwarts Express-like” overnight train ride to San Carlos de Bariloche😅 During this 12-hour wait at the bus station park in Viedma, we took turns watching each other’s backpacks so the rest of the class could go see the world’s largest colony of burrowing parrots (Cyanoliseus patagonus) in the sandstone cliffs of El Cóndor beach. They excavate their own nest burrows by tunneling sometimes 3m deep into the faces of standstone, limestone or earth cliffs. Species decline is due to trapping for live bird trade, conversion of grassland to crop production and increasing persecution as a crop pest. They can live for more than 20 years and are monogamous. Even with migration, each year they return to the same nest. Swipe left for a video of them!🐥 #viedma #viedmarionegro #burrowingparrot #burrowingparrots #patagonia #patagoniaargentina #elcondorbeach #elcóndorbeach #cyanoliseuspatagonus

Birds. Damn I love photographing them; they are incredibly cautious, difficult to predict, approach, keep in focus and track! I had a really great encounter yesterday evening with a flock of #BurrowingParrots, I worked the scene as hard as I could in the 2 hour window I had before the sun set. I hope you enjoy this carousel of photos here dedicated to these incredibly cool birds! All photos here taken with a @nikonusa D850 and 500mm f/4 lens. @jacadatravel @danahrichardson

El Condor is the largest colony of burrowing parrots in the world. The sandstone cliffs where these Patagonian Burrowing Parrots nest are almost 5km long. #animalplanet #desktoglory #parrot #burrowingparrots #discoversouthamerica #southamerica #lonelyplanet

Burrowing parrots, they are the color of olives with a yellow brownish belly; some seem to be wearing a white mask around their eyes giving them the air of cartoon thieves. You find them solitary stationed on electricity pylons working as sentinels, alarming others. You can have them suddenly circling around your head in noisy flocks screaming menacingly. #travel#Argentina#flyerbikes#ebikes#southamerica# adventure #canonswitzerland #5DS #mytravelgram #travelphotography #expedition #cheguevara #journeys#Gaucho #traveller#ontheroad#cyclinglife#road#ruta40#RN40#Catamarca#Parrots#BurrowingParrots#birds

We couldn't believe it when we saw a flock of parrots flying through the windy foothills of the #Andes. Turns out these are #BurrowingParrots that are mostly found in this region of #Argentina
