Red-bellied Macaw

Red-bellied Macaw, Amazon River near Iquitos

We saw at least 3 species of Macaw on the Amazon River Boat Adventure with Wildside Nature Tours, two of them perched where we could get a good look. The Red-bellied Macaw was the smallest and least colorful, but still…a Macaw in the wild! This bird was high up in a dead snag and a good ways away, so I pulled my Nikon P900 out of its bag for the first (and last) time on the trip. The 2000mm equivalent zoom brought the bird in close enough to enjoy.
