photoblog image Blue-and-yellow

Blue-and-yellow

The Blue-and-Yellow Macaw is a member of the group of large macaws. They have a vivid appearance with blue wings and tail, and a green forehead. Beaks are black, and very strong for crushing nuts and sometimes employed to hang from branches. Macaws are popular as pets partly because of their striking appearance; however, their large size and requirement of a lot more effort from owners should be borne in mind.


While I do appreciate nature in all its forms, photographing these birds was a tad challenging owing to their incessant cawing.

Great in the colours of Brazil smile At least these big ones sit still - try and get a decent pic of a small hopping bird.
What a combination of natural colors.The blue and yellow Macaw himself is very bright with lovely color. Also the colorful background made it more remarkable. Great work !
Ayush Basu: Thanks a lot! I too like this bird
