Tim Melling – Hyacinth Macaw

Hyacinth Macaw is a species I have wanted to see since childhood.  They are the longest parrot in the world (though Kakapo is the heaviest), and have a breathtaking blue and yellow livery.  They usually hang around in pairs or small groups.  This one was foraging under some trees with its partner.  Most of the time it was concentrating on the job of finding food, but for one second it paused to look over its shoulder and squawked to its partner.  I managed to capture that moment.  This was in Brazil’s Pantanal.
