Blue and Yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna) These birds are part of the parrot family and can be found in Panama, Central and South America. The macaw has a massive beak that is hinged to allow it to crush the toughest nuts. It also uses its beak to help it climb. Its feet have toes that point forward and backward. This enables it to grasp food and to grip while climbing.
The long tail is used for balance. Macaws are completely dependant on trees for their food, which includes fruits, seeds, berries, and nuts. Most macaws have been imported to Europe and North America to be sold as pets. This has had serious effects on the wild population and some species are already extinct. This photo was taken at a park. The bird was a pet sitting on its owners shoulder.
