Click on thumbnail image to view the full sized picture. These images have been kindly sent to me by Sam Williams, a young post-graduate from North Yorkshire following his visit to Serra Branca in the state of Bahia, Brazil earlier this year (2002). PLEASE do not download any of these images to other websites as this will infringe his copyright.

N.B Articles on the Lear's Macaw in the wild can be found at this website page including Sam's own account of his trip to see the Lear's Macaws published in February 2002 in Parrots Magazine.
