Blue-and-Yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna), also known as the Blue-and-Gold Macaw, is a large blue (top parts) and yellow (under parts) South American parrot, a member of the large group of Neotropical parrots known as macaws. It inhabits forest (especially varzea, but also in open sections of terra firme(non-flooded forest)) and woodland of tropical South America.
Explosion of colours - A rare wild couple of hybrid macaws, red-and-green with blue-and-yellow, on top of their nesting palm. Both of the original species are amongst the most colourful birds in the world, but the hybrids are even more extravagant. In particular when they open their wings you get an explosion of colours. From Brazil.
Yellow Blue and Gold. This Macaw is most likely an Lutino albino. His yellow coloring wouldn't come from eumelanin but some of it may be from other pigments that albinism doesn't affect (such as carotenoid pigments) or maybe even from phaeomelanin. If his coloring was a result of leucism or xanthochromism his eyes would not be pink.
We will travel into the magical world of birds through the use of macrophotography. Macrophotography will enable us to view details of birds that we would not otherwise be able to observe. See birds as you have never seen them before.
