The makers of Rio, that movie with the talking birds and shit, had this bird all wrong. It's NOT a BLUE macaw. It's a HYACINTH macaw. They are NOT native to Rio. They are native to the Pantene region of Brazil. They dont feed on fruit. They feed on palm nuts. Get your facts right people.

I had no idea! That's actually pretty interesting. I would've thought they fed on more nuts from the shape of the beak.

They actually have the strongest beak of any bird. That shape helped them break open their food.

That's awesome! I would've expected maybe the Hornbill bird to actually have the strongest since the part on top of the beak they use

Hornbills actually have pretty delicate beaks. They're mostly for show.

Hyacinth macaws are the largest and rarest of the macaws. It goes by many names, but blue macaw is not one of them.

It irrates me when people get this bird wrong. I'm probably going to be a bird specialist when I'm older. I know more about birds than most science teachers.

I can see why.
I spent 5 years of my life dedicated to studying animals. It was always a dream to work with exotic animals, but I don't know any specific carriers I'd be interested in.
Have you ever had pet bird?

I had an African grey parrot growing up and I had zebra finches for a while, but my cats ate them. Our finches breed successfully tho.
