|Yellow-collared Macaw Primolius
(aka Golden-collared Macaw, Propyrrhura auricollis)
The Yellow-collared Macaw is found in central and south-west Brazil and adjacent areas of Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. These photos from a patch of cerrado in south east Pará are possibly near its northern limit.
|They inhabit cerrado, and deciduous
woodland where they feed on fruit and seeds.
Their most notable feature is the yellow collar stretching round the back of the neck but you should also be able to make out the blue primaries and the red upper tail.
