HYACINTH MACAW Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus, Guacamaya azul or Guacamaya jacinto (Spanish)
In honor of Valentine’s month, interpret this photo sequence of a monogamous Hyacinth Macaw pair in Brazil as you wish. Simultaneous swinging back and forth on a utility line must have set forth the male giving her a line, definitely a different communication line!
At about 40 inches (1M) from head to tail tip, this vulnerable/endangered species, due to pet trade and habitat loss, is the longest parrot species in the world. It mainly survives in three small populations in Brazil, Paraguay, and maybe Bolivia. (By the way, captive macaws are available to be seen in the Yucatan Peninsula, especially at Xcaret Park which supplies Scarlet Macaws for reintroduction into the National Park of Palenque.)
Listen to an adult pair of Hyacinth Macaws at a nest. Reminds me of what I heard during this mating sequence.
