HYACINTH MACAW (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) ©Teresa Burnett
Native to central and eastern South America
the Hyacinth Macaw, or Hyacinthine Macaw, is the largest macaw and the largest flying parrot species in the world
the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can outweigh it at up to 3.5 kg. 
In terms of length it  is larger than any other species of parrot. 
While generally easily  recognized, it can be confused with the far rarer and smaller Lear’s Macaw. 
Their popularity as pets has taken a heavy toll on their population in the wild.

I have been fortunate to see Hyacinth macaws, Scarlet macaws, Blue and Yellow macaws and Red and Green macaws in the wild—in Peru and Brazil. I hope that some day you will see them in their native homes as well it is quite a magnificent experience.
