Kissy kissy Macaws

Scarlet Macaws, Copan Ruins, Honduras

While we are on the subject of the Scarlet Macaws at Copan Ruins in Honduras…once again, the living proof of a successful reintroduction program…here is your classic shot of two Macaws doing that kissy kissy thing that parrots do. If you look closely you will see that their beaks are actually intwined. In the hour or so we observed the Macaws around the feeders we got to see a variety of different behaviors. At the end of the hour they all got up as a group and flew away up the open aisle between the trees, to disperse back to forest feeding and nest tending. Sony RX10iv at 95mm. Program mode. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 640. Processed in Polarr.
