[chuck] in Jenaro Herrera, Parakeet, Science

Elysa and I were given a pair of cobalt-winged parakeets (Brotogeris cyanoptera) as a wedding present and they stayed in/flew around our house the whole time we were in the Peruvian Amazon (see Jenaro Herrera). The male was named "Aurelio", the female "Luz". I could never tell them apart. [NOTE: Zooming in on Elysa's watch, I see that we were up playing with the parakeets at 11:00 PM on a Sunday evening].
