Orange-chinned Parakeet (Brotogeris jugularis) at Escuela Bella Vista
These delightful little fellows were in the trees around the primary school parking lot. They seem to be common in our area, and they are not flighty. They watch you with a cautious interest. They may adopt a nest cavity that other birds have used, or make a hole in a termite heap like the one shown here at the Garden Botanico Maracaibo. Thanks to wikipedia for the distribution map.
