Description

The hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) is a handsome bird, deep cobalt blue in colour, with a golden eye ring and bill base. It is found in Brazil and easternmost Bolivia, where it lives mainly on seasonally flooded grassland. Unfortunately, it is becoming a rarity, with fewer than 3,000 birds left in Brazil, where it feeds on nuts from the palms Suagrus commosa and Attalea funifera. This decline is mainly due to a reduction in the numbers of palm trees and to incessant poaching by illegal traders. Hyacinth macaws can fetch a good price in the illegal pet trade and are also hunted for food. In addition their feathers are used to make Indian head-dresses and decorative pieces to sell to tourists. The Foundation for the Preservation of the Hyacinth Macaw was set up in 1991 to try to save these magnificent birds from extinction.
