[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is my post of a "Guacamaya amarilla", a very popular and common bird in Venezuela, where you can see them often flying in groups, wings almost touching, and making their very loud and caracteristic sound, specially early in the mornings when they fly to feed, and just before sunset when returns. Size is about 25 inches long. Nests in holes of dead trees. 2 to 4 white eggs are incubated by the female for 24-26 days.

Due to the bright and beautiful coloration of their plumage, they are kept as pets for some people, and Illegal traffic in live birds has put the species in imminent danger of extinction.

The formal facts:

ORDER: Psittaciformes
SPECIES: ararauna

Hi Jose,
A belated welcome to TE.A lovely vibrant image and the bird has a very nice pose.Good texture of its breast feathers and there is detail down to its wrinkled skin.A touch of noise that is a bit distracting.Again welcome...
Regards, david

Bonito ejemplar! excelente el pormenor y la nitidez de los colores, cosa que las guacamayas tienen em abundancia.
La note muy interesante, sobretodo porque alerta para el tráfico de estas aves.
Buen trabajo,
