My apologies to all regular website visitors for not reporting recently, but I have been very busy working since my last report. I also went to Brazil and Chile as well as the Caribbean in December. A lot is happening with various projects for the blue macaws and I am still working on re-vamping the website. The website run by Arkive has film footage I took in April 1995 to the Spix's Macaw area. There is unique footage of the female re-introduced to the wild in March 1995, but which went missing some four weeks later. Later it was reported she flew into power lines and was found dead by a local farm-hand. I also took footage of the huge aviary built to house her until she was acclimated for release as well as some footage of the young male, which was kept there for a while and was visited by the female. There is also some brief footage of the last wild male, which disappeared at the end of 2000, with his Illiger's Macaw mate. They were extremely difficult to approach.
