macaws using nest boxThe goal of the Nido Adoptivo™ (“Nest Adoption”) Program is to increase the annual reproductive output of blue-throated macaws by providing nest boxes. The first nest boxes were installed in 2007, and more have been added over the past nine years to total 68 nest boxes in 2015-2016 season. Nest boxes are monitored twice a month by a field biologist who records the nest box contents, usage and inter-species interactions.

In the 2015-2016 season, a total of six blue-throated macaws fledged out of three nest boxes, which brings the total to 62 macaws fledged from nest boxes since the program’s beginning.
