Horace the Hyacinth Macaw

Here's Horace the Hyacinth Macaw and his Friend Marky the Scarlet Macaw.


The Hyacinth Macaw is a parrot native to central and eastern South America. With a length of about 100 cm (3.3 ft) it is longer than any other species of parrot. It is the largest macaw and the largest flying parrot species, though the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can outweigh it at up to 3.5 kg. The Kakapo is a bird I will be building soon :-)


Habitat loss and trapping wild birds for the pet trade has taken a heavy toll on their population in the wild, and as a result the species is classified as Endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List. Very sad :-(


Anyway enough facts I'll let Horace and Marky do the Squawking...


Say bye bye Horace and Marky.......




Hope you like them they look great together don't they?

I want to build a Blue and Yellow Macaw to go with them :-)


If you like Horace, Marky and the rest of my birds and would like to own your favourite/s one day please follow this link LEGO Bird Project And take a couple of minutes to register and support my idea.


Thank you!
