We currently have 58 nest boxes in different locations in the reserve. Although the nesting occupancy rate was lower than in previous years, this year corresponds to a successful year for the El Oro Parakeet nesting season. With 22 active nests, 91 initial eggs and 67 pigeons counted; 50 reached complete development and we recorded 38 fledglings. Estimating that 60% of the initial eggs placed become fledglings, it can be determined that by the year 2017 we would have approximately 55 fledglings, this number exceeds the year 2014 that was considered a successful year for the El Oro Parakeet. The years 2015 and 2016 were of low activity due to dry climatic conditions.
