Hyacinth Macaw at the Nashville Zoo

On a trip to the Nashville Zoo, I captured a few pics of the Hyacinth Macaw. The macaw is such a gorgeous color of cobalt. 




The macaw is a parrot native to central and eastern South America. Notice the yellow ring around the eye. It is an endangered species and there are an estimated 2500-5000 Hyacinth macaws left in the wild today. 





I am thankful that I went to the zoo with my grandsons. It's always a joy to spend time with them and watch the excitement in their eyes - Judy.

  7. Big city zoos are a hoot forgive the pun and what is better than going with kids. Lovely bird, they have some parrots at the shoe store I go to and they are not friendly, lol.
