Coupe of Hyacint Macaws – Wild – At Pantanal – Porto Jofre – MT, Brazil.
The Hyacinth Macaw is the largest parrot in the world and easily one of the most spectacular. It is an enormous bird weighing on average 1.5 kilograms (3.5 pounds) and is completely blue save its dark bill and bare yellow orbital ring and stripe at base of its lower mandible. It is completely dependent on the fruits of a number of palm species and has a necessarily massive bill to aid in the cracking of the tough exterior. Due to its dependence on palm fruit its range is regulated by the presence and abundance of its preferred species and is distributed in north central and south central Brazil into extreme north west Paraguay where it can be found in palm savannas, Mauritia palm stands, open dry woodland, gallery forest and the edge of humid lowland forest. neotropical.birds.cornell.edu/Species-Account/nb/species/…
Unfortunately it’s a threatened species.
Happy Blue Monday!
Thanks a lot for your visits, comments, faves, invites, etc. Very much appreciated!
