Hyacinth Macaw Flying
Photo and caption by Susan Roehl
Most of the land in The Pantanal in Brazil is owned by private ranchers who let most of their land alone for living spaces for wild animals. One such rancher was provided nesting and food for large numbers of hyacinth macaws. There were numerous macaws on his property gathering in the palm trees for company. Some were flying low between two or three trees. This macaw was one of the birds flying from one tree to the next. Hyacinth macaws never fly too high off the ground giving me and other members of our photographic tour many chances for good photos.
