Paradise

Military Macaw

Usually found in pairs or in small flocks of up to ten birds. Roosts consisting of far larger numbers of birds are found on cliffs or in large trees. The breeding season in Mexico is in June, when the military macaw lays a clutch of two to three eggs. These eggs are generally laid in nests on or near cliff faces, which offer the nest and its inhabitants a little more protection.

DID YOU KNOW? Parrot's vision is remarkably different from ours. Like many avian species, their ability to see into the ultraviolet spectrum enables them to see colours we cannot even imagine.
