Scarlet Macaw nest tree

A little post to remind me of warmer times as I acclimatize to Britain once more is in order I think. I mentioned previously the ridiculous levels of wildlife we found around Hato el Cedral's accomodation block but saved these guys for their own post - directly above our room hung this branch complete with its own residents.....

A pair of scarlet macaws. I don't think they had eggs or young as yet as most of the time neither adult was in the cavity but they were certainly tightly bonded and on the way to parenthood with lots of affectionate preening and so on.

No need for a TV in the room anyway.
