Black parrots not breeding in the Vallée de Mai this breeding season
Right now we should be halfway through the black parrot breeding season. But so far the Vallée de Mai team have found no evidence of breeding attempts at all this season.
Ordinarily, the black parrot breeding season runs from roughly October to March. We begin to hear breeding calls in mid-October, then birds are seen inspecting cavities for nesting suitability. We usually start finding eggs in late November and early December, with the first ones hatching by the start of the New Year. The young typically begin to fledge at the end of February with the last ones leaving the nest by the end of March.
Scheint aber immer wieder Jahre zu geben, wo die Piepmätze keine Lust haben, Eier zu legen und Futter heranzuschaffen.
