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 ...now extinct in the wild !!
The rarest parrot in the world .the SPIX Macaw
Bred by Cromwell at the captive breeding center
Baby chicks feed every 2 hours by Cromwell and his dedicated team
