ductive value of each sex. We examined the brood sex ratio in the Lilac-crowned Parrot (sitea finschi) in relation to climate, hatching date. El loro corona lila (sitea finschi) es una especie endémica de la costa del Palabras clave: sitea finschi, psitácidos, distribución. The species sitea finschi is endemic to the Mexican coast of the Pacific Ocean status of lilac-crowned parrot (sitea finschi) populations in Mexico was.

Finally, we expected vocalisations emitted when perched or foraging to be of short-range, with low diversity and repetition rate, so as to maintain contact with conspecifics but avoid detection by potential predators. The main vegetation types within the reserve are dense deciduous forest on the hills and slopes, and taller semi-deciduous forest in valleys [ 33 ].

The Lilac-crowned site is endemic to the Pacific coast of Mexico, and nests during the dry season from February to May [ 30 ].

Vocal recording We recorded vocalisations emitted by parrots at nest-sites, and during opportunistic encounters while they were foraging and resting. Recordings were saved on secure digital or compact flash cards as bitwav files, with a sampling rate of Recordings were viewed via spectrogram in Raven Pro 1.

Vocal analyses We reviewed recordings to extract notes, defined as a continuous sound bordered by a silent interval [ 36 ]. ACMM then conducted visual comparison of spectrograms for each note to classify notes in different types. Although we carried out a full account of all notes emitted to evaluate the diversity of acoustic signals, we selected only note-types emitted more than once to describe vocalisations.

For statistical analysis we used only note-types that were emitted at least five times across all recordings, and randomly selected five high-quality notes, with low background noise and a high signal-to-noise ratio, for each note-type. We measured five spectrographic variables in Raven Pro 1.

We thereby obtained a total of 11 variables for each note.

Vocalisations were associated with nine behavioural contexts [ 7 , 19 , 20 , 24 , 27 ]: 1 Nesting activity, when the male returned to the nest after foraging, and called the incubating female who vocalised on leaving the nest-cavity to be fed [ 30 ]; 2 Threat interactions of agonistic encounters between conspecifics, usually around the nest; 3 Alarm vocalisations emitted in the presence of potential predators; 4 Foraging, emitted by individuals while foraging in trees; 5 Perched, when parrots were perched inactive or at rest in a tree; 6 Take-off, vocalisations emitted seconds before, during and after flight take-off by parrots; 7 Flight, obtained from flying parrots; 8 Landing, vocalisations of parrots on final flight approach to land in a tree; and 9 Food soliciting, begging by nestlings soliciting food from parent birds, and nesting females soliciting food from males.

Given the difficulties of capturing and marking free-ranging parrots, we considered individual identification based on nest-site ownership for recordings obtained at nest sites.

Reproductive pairs of Lilac-crowned sites are highly synchronous in nesting behaviour [ 30 ]. Therefore for many of the behavioural contexts we used vocalisations recorded at different nest-sites where we could be confident of individual identification. For recordings of behavioural contexts away from nest-sites foraging, flight , we used only recordings obtained on different days and those that were sufficiently separated by distance among sites to potentially represent different individuals, considering the daily foraging distances travelled by Lilac-crowned sites [ 38 ].

We were able to distinguish between male and female parrots at nests, as only the female incubates [ 30 ]. Statistical analyses A third of note-types were emitted only once, and were not considered in further analyses, leaving a total of notes that comprised note-types emitted at least twice. For each of the nine behavioural contexts, we determined the emission rate of notes per second, calculated as the total number of notes emitted divided by time from when the first note was emitted to the last note for that context, which was used as a measure of intensity of vocal activity during the recording period for each behavioural context.

We also determined the frequency of occurrence of the most common note-types emitted by adult parrots across all recordings in each behavioural context, and applied chi-square contingency table analysis to determine whether note-types were associated with a specific behavioural context. We calculated adjusted standardised residuals for each cell [ 39 ] to determine which notes were used more than expected in each context.

For statistical analyses of acoustic parameters, we eliminated 43 note-types that were emitted less than five times, or had poor quality recordings with a lot of background noise or overlapped other notes.

This gave a total of 58 note-types of sufficient sound quality and frequency of emission that were used in statistical parameter analyses among behavioural contexts. We used Generalised Linear Mixed Models GLMM fit by maximum likelihood, where we considered behavioural context as a fixed effect, and included individual identity as a random effect across contexts. Usually in pairs or small groups, although larger groups are formed in the dry season birds reported and in communal roosts more than 1, birds reported in the same place Nayarit.

Reproduction: They nest in tree hollows for example, Ficus , including old nests woodpeckers for example, Phloeoceastes or arboreal termite mounds. The breeding season It comprises from February to June, nesting with a cycle consisting of 28 days of incubation eggs, followed by two months of growth of chickens in the nest Forshaw , Renton , Food: Eating habits are poorly documented: It has been observed a particular preference for figs.

During the dry season the diet consists mainly of Astronium graveolens , Brosimum alicastrum , Celaenodendron mexicanum , Comocladia engleriana and Ficus insipida.

During the rainy season The diet consists of species such as Caesalpinia pulcherrima , Celaenodendron mexicanum , Esenbeckia nesiotica , Jatropha spp and Sciadodendron excelsum Renton , cause some crop damage corn and bananas. They have been observed wild species groups, feeding in company Red-crowned Parrot sitea viridigenalis in Los Angeles, California.

It is mostly residents, but outside the breeding season, visit during autumn, lowlands, for example in Oaxaca. Generally common. Described as fairly common locally in southeast Sonora. Very rare in the highlands of Oaxaca.


Several wild populations reported in several locations in the United States. Justification of the red list category This species has been selected in danger of extinction because it is suspected that is decreasing very quickly as a function of contractions recorded ranges and due to the unsustainable exploitation and loss of habitat.

Auk —Psittaciformes parrots are an interesting model for evaluating the behavioural context of the vocal repertoire as parrots have complex social systems that require a similarly complex communication system, and use acoustic communication in a variety of contexts [ 7 ], as well as being vocal learners able to acquire acoustic signals through social interaction [ 8 ].

For statistical analyses of acoustic parameters, we eliminated 43 note-types that were emitted less than five times, or had poor quality recordings with a lot of background noise or overlapped other notes. Both nest predation and food availability may limit parrot reproduction in tropical dry forests, with populations of threatened species in dry habitats being vulnerable to effects of climatic variability and habitat fragmentation.
