The last Spix's Macaw in the wild

A short film about the footage of the last Spix's Macaw in the wild taken in 1990

In February 2012 I put up a link to a short film on U-Tube featuring the last Spix's Macaw in the wild. There is a slightly longer film with Portuguese sound-track on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLL6D-EBI4Q . Made by biologist Francisco Pontual it is titled "O sobrevivente solitário" (the solitary or lonely survivor) it features some interesting footage of the last Spix's Macaw in the wild taken in 1990 including some of him with the female Illiger's Macaw at a nest hole and also grooming her. Carlos Yamashita and Martin Kelsey also appear briefly.
