Family: Psittacidae
Genus: Ara
Species: Ararauna

Macaws are large colorful parrots, classified into six of the many Psittacidae genera: Ara, Anodorhynchus, Cyanopsitta, Propyrrhura, Orthopsittaca and Diopsittaca.

These ones are kept in captivity in a place called “Usina” (Mill). It’s located some 10 kilometers away from my town, and once there was in the place a sugar mill. What we call “Hotel Fazenda” (a kind of hotel in the countryside) is being built there. I don’t know what will happen to the birds that are still kept in the place.

Fantastic capture Livio,
Perfect detail and sharpness. Excellent job on the exposure.
Nice BG and POV. Something I really admire about your shots is the vibrant colours you capture. And here, they stand out so well.
Another Brilliant shot Livio, thanks for posting

Beautiful capture, yet once (oops, twice again), Livio.
This is very much a case of doubling your pleasure.
What will happen to them once the hotel is built, is anyone looking into this question?
