This macaw’s owner had a booth at the 400 flea market just outside of Barrie, Ontario CANADA. He kindly agreed that I could take a few shots of her and told me her name which is Marigold.
This type of macaw is known as the Blue-and-yellow macaw.
Nikon D40, Nikkor VR 55-200mm lens
“It can reach 76-86 cm (29.9-33.9 inches) long and weigh 900 to 1300 g (2-3 lbs). It is vivid in appearance with blue wings and tail, dark blue chin, golden under parts and a green forehead. Its beak is black, and very strong for crushing nuts. The naked face is white, turning pink in excited birds, and lined with small black feathers. Blue-and-yellow Macaws are popular as pets partly because of their striking appearance and ability as a talking bird. It has been documented that a Macaw’s facial feathers are unique as a human fingerprint. The majority of macaws are now endangered in the wild. " ~ Wikipedia
