The Lear’s Macaw is named after Edward Lear, a 19th century artist who was famous for painting macaws. These birds were exported to Europe as early as the 19th century. Originally, scientists thought this bird was a hyacinth or glaucous macaw, or at least a hybrid of the two, It was not until 1978 that Helmut Sick determined it to be a distinct species.
These birds form monogamous pair bonds. In the wild, macaws often flock to clay deposits known as “macaw licks.” When disturbed, these bright birds screech loudly and circle overhead with their long tails streaming. Macaws are playful and inquisitive and are able to mimic human vocalizations. Macaws are extremely messy eaters. Their strong beaks are perfectly adapted for extracting hard nuts and seeds. Macaws are able to fly at speeds of up to 56 kph (35 mph). lear’s macaw for sale, lear’s macawvprice, lear’s macaw predators, lear’s macaw vs hyacinth, what does lear’s macaw cost, lear’s macaw conservation.
