Photographer's Note

My half day in Pirenpolis was becoming to end and I was checking the street that goes to the bus station when I noticed a fight in the top of a palm tree. After some minutes I got to see two birds fighting, but at the end I wasn't sure if they were copulating or fighting by the possession of the palm tree, maybe a mother or father expelling a teen son from home ?
These birds are named dwarf-macaw (Diopsittaca nobilis), in fact they looks more like green parrots, but they have a blue forehead and a tail longer than the parrots, but they are smaller than a typical macaw.
One of the first names of my country had was "Land of Parrots" because we have many different species of parrots, parakeets and macaws. Other name we had was "land of palm trees" because we have many species too.

Meu meio dia de passeio em Pirenpolis estava chegando ao fim e eu verificava o que haveria de bonito na rua que levava rodoviria. Logo ouvi um barulho de briga no topo de uma palmeira e vi essas duas aves; no comeo achei que elas estavam disputando a posse da palmeira, mas depois me pareceu que estavam acasalando, mas podia ser tambm um pai ou uma me expulsando um filhote j crescido de seu territrio.
Esses pssaros so araras-nanicas (Diopsittaca nobilis), tem testa azul e cauda longa como as araras, mas so menores e tem penas verdes como os papagaios. Vale lembrar que o Brasil era chamado de terra dos papagaios e terra das palmeiras quando foi descoberto.
