SCHAAF, Alejandro A; BENAVIDEZ, Analía; RIVERA, Luis O  and  POLITI, Natalia. Primer registro de nidificación y cambios en la abundancia del Loro Hablador (Amazona aestiva) en unazona de Selva Pedemontana del noroeste argentino. Hornero [online]. 2016, vol.31, n.2, pp.113-116. ISSN 0073-3407.

In this study we describe the changes in the abundance of Turquoise-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva) over a year, and we report and describe for the first time its nesting in a piedmont forest area in Jujuy Province, Argentina. We recorded a higher abundance during the dry season that matches the ripening of cultivated citrus and Anadenanthera colubrina fruits. The decrease in abundance during the wet season may be explained by the movements of the species towards the Chaco for breeding. Notwithstanding, our finding of the nest indicate that some individuals stay in the piedmont forest during the breeding season.

Keywords : Abundance; Amazona aestiva; Piedmont forest; Nesting; Turquoise-fronted Amazon.
