The American who founded the bird park in Copan

Traveling to Copan Ruinas is not at all good if you do not know the "macaw mountain" bird park; the best memory that you take of the site is a photograph with the national bird of Honduras: the red macaw. It was the foreigner Lloyd Davidson, of Knoxville, Tennessee (USA) who founded this park in December of 2001, in love with the vegetation and the perfect climate of Copan Ruinas.

We share the interview with him:

R5: Where are you from Lloyd?

I am from Knoxville, Tennessee in the U.S.

R5: How long have you lived in Copan Ruins and why?

.the vulgar blog. - The facts and characters of this blog are fictitious. Any resemblance to reality is pure coincidence.
I have been faithful and unfaithful, I myself have lied some time, but the record of getting stuck in the doors I have, clearly. I hated it when I put frying pans in a suitcase that I had given him and I wondered if he could take this pot or towel.

I have been in Copan Ruins since 2000 but have spent a total of 32 years in Honduras. I spent two years in Roatan from 1973 to 1975 helping to establish the diving operation at Anthony's Key Resort. I returned in 1986 and started a fresh fish export company called Flying Fish and ran it until I came to Copan.

R5: When the bird park opened?

Macaw Mountain actually opened in Dec. 2001 but construction began two years earlier.

R5: How was this project born?

R5: What can i find in macaw park?

The park became reality in a fairly long and evolutionary process. It all began in Roatan when I agreed in the early 1990's to care for a collection of unwanted parrots "for several months" and the time passed. I accidently became "the bird man of Roatan". The collection expanded as the island developed and foreign residents found that the parrot had been part of being in Paradise was a lot to handle or they bailed out of "Paradise". The number of birds increased past 50 it was evident that some means of supporting them long term was needed. The first Cruise Ships had begun to visit Roatan so small a park was built in Sandy Bay to hopefully generate the necessary income. The park has survived for about 5 years and taught us a lot about the parrots, caring for them, and about ecotourism. I had been in Roatan a long time and needed a change so the move to Copan was a personal decision made after a visit that fascinated me. Economically staying on the island made more sense as the cruise ship boom had obviously begun but I was ready to go. I was lucky enough to find this beautiful property and after two years of work we loaded 90 parrots and toucans on a chartered plane and flew them to the Copan Valley. R5: Do you have projects for this year 2017?
