Scarlett O'Hara! - Scarlet Macaw - NZ by 


Scarlet Macaws (Ara macao) are large and very colorful macaws that are endemic to the Central and South American rain forests. Distribution:
Their natural habitat extends from eastern Panama in Central America south across northern South America, east of the Andes, to Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay. They inhabit humid evergreen forests in the American tropics, from extreme eastern Mexico locally to Amazonian Peru and Brazil, in lowlands up to 500 meters (ormerly up to 1000m). They are now endangered due to habitat destruction and capturing for the pet trade. Description / Personality: Scarlet Macaws are large – they can weigh over 2 lbs and have a a length of up to 96 cm (36 inches) – of which more than half is the pointed, graduated tail. The plumage is mostly red, but the rump and tail-covert feathers are light blue, the greater upperwing coverts (feathers) are yellow, the upper sides of the flight feathers of the wings are dark blue as are the ends of the tail feathers. The undersides of the wing and tail flight feathers are dark red with metallic gold iridescence. There is bare white skin around the eye and from there to the bill. The upper beak is mostly pale horn in color and the lower is black. Males and females look alike.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
