Mealy Parrots over the Sinkhole - Journey to Nohoch Ch'en

During our 14 day expedition to the vast Nohoch Ch'en Sinkhole, our team discovered the sinkhole was frequented by Mealy Parrots, the largest of the Amazonian Parrot family. The parrots obviously loved the echoing effect of the sinkhole, and I was lucky enough to witness a pair fly make several laps to ascend out of the sinkhole, their iconic "whats up!?" call echoing off the sinkhole walls.
