There are two species endemic to the island: the Sisserou or Imperial amazon, Amazona imperialis, and the red-necked amazon, Amazona arausiaca. We spent several hours hiking through the lush, humid forest, and a few of us did manage to hear and briefly spot a few red-necked amazons while tramping down the trail, then again at a lookout, with the use of binoculars. But our best view came at end of our hike. As we exited the forest trail, one of the guides from the park headquarters pointed up into a grove of trees. There, perched up on a tree along the road, sat a pair of the parrots. A viewing scope helped us get a good luck at them among the foliage.
