After the meeting, I travelled with Steve Zack and Takuo Jean Michel to Campo-Ma’an National Park – the aim was to see wild Grey Parrots. Parrots were locally common in and around the park – quite consistent with the density estimates (5-15 per sq km) recently calculated there. Other goodies seen were Grey-necked Picathartes, a single Chimpanzee for Steve, and a nice group of Red River Hogs Potamochoerus porcus.
