"Pantanal Blues" depicts a pair of Hyacinth Macaws (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) on a jungle branch. At approximately 100 cm in length and up to 1.5 kg in weight the majestic Hyacinth Macaw is the largest member of the parrot family. Their plumage is a gorgeous deep cobalt blue becoming almost violet on the wings. The yellow patch of skin around the eye and lower mandible provide a spectacular contrast. They have a massive grey/black bill capable of crushing even the toughest of seeds. The Hyacinth Macaw's preferred habitat is tropical lowland forest, usually near streams or rivers, and palm groves where it feeds on seeds, fruits and its favourite food palm nuts. These birds are listed as an endangered species and the main stronghold for the remaining wild population is the Pantanal in Brazil.
