The rarest bird in the world.....the Spix Macaw

Some of you may remember that we have a parrot of our own........Booby  a Guatemalan Miley with green feathers and a few red and blue patches  . Anyway,  when offered a visit to the Conservation captive breeding center in Qatar   during our Whale Shark Conference visit we were delighted . Another early start  but  no problem to see the SPIX Macaw extinct in the wild !!
