Scarlet Macaws flying to nest over Punta Leona, Costa Rica. I am currently documenting the trajectory of a young flightless scarlet macaw that recently was blown out of its nest during a storm. The young bird was rescued by local conservation personnel and is currently in a rehab center being fed and paired up with a mate.
The birds release is planned to be in the area of its original home with the acquisition of a specialized release and quarantine cage. Stay tuned for more pics and eventually an HD video! These glorious creatures are a marvel to behold in their natural habitat. It is an incredible privilege to participate in these conservation efforts.
Current Events in the nest site
July 18, 2013 entry 3 Ctenosaur Relocation planning begins.
The 3 member Ctenosaur family should be remove from the scarlet macaws nest. A camera should be used to inspect the nest. The birds should be encouraged to return by repeated cleaning of the site. A quarantine cage may be installed on the site after experts confer on inspection. Carara oficials will be contacted soon.
