Parrots in Chapelco, San Martin de los Andes, Argentina. These small parrots are the most southern in the world, living in the Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia. Usually in winter they migrate a little more north, to more temperate zones, but lately with climate change, they stay in the Patagonian valleys, being surprised by sudden snowfall, they are seen in groups of hundreds and fly close to the ground following the deviations of the ground.

Location: Chapelco, San Martin de los Andes, Argentina.
