Three El Oro Parakeets – Southern Ecuador

The El Oro Parakeet is an extremely rare parakeet, unknown to science until it was discovered on the pacific slope of southern Ecuador in 1980. We only saw them from a distance and this image was captured while raining, making it an even more interesting image to capture.
