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.
