Spix's Macaw by KristynJanelle Spix's Macaw by KristynJanelle
Boy did this one take some work. I decided to try more detailed feathering than I normally would, please let me know what you think.

The Spix's Macaw is one of the most endangered species of parrots, possibly extinct in the wild. There are a little more than 80 known individuals left, all of them in captivity and working to repopulate the species, although it's a slow process. The 2011 movie Rio was based around the concept of Blu and Jewel being the last Spix's Macaws, although the movie refers to them by their nickname, "Blue Macaws".

My favorite bird so far! My other favorite was the Hyacinth Macaw.
