Black Parrot - seen with local rangers in Perinet (Mantadia). This bird is similar to the Greater Vasa Parrot of the eastern side of Madagascar. We had been working with the Seychelles population of black parrots - at that time a sub-species barklyi - so this was a significant observation, connecting with a species in the wild across different islands.
