Macaw


This colourful bird is one of the tropical birds at Butterfly Gardens in Central Saanich.

Macaws are New World parrots, found in Central American, South America and the Caribbean. Their populations are rapidly dwindling in the wild and a few species have gone extinct as recently as the 20th century. It's entirely probable that the only macaws your grand-children will ever see are animated cartoon versions.
