As the Blue Macaws website is being constantly updated with new material and images, I have decided to report on these additions so that frequent visitors can access them quickly and easily. Please remember to send me feedback by e-mail occasionally. This actually helps!! Please remember to put the word "Anodorhynchus" or something easily recognisable in the subject box, not "Hi" or "Hello" as these words are used extensively in spam e-mail and they will get deleted unread

There are now some 400 images on the website, some on the images pages, but many on the articles pages, which are historical and historic. Click on any item hyperlinked in blue to get images or links to articles elsewhere on the website.

WARNING: It has come to my attention that some fraudsters operating scams out of West Africa have been claiming this website as their own in trying to entice potential buyers in Europe and elsewhere into sending them money for non-existent Hyacinthine Macaws. I should like to make quite clear that I am not involved in any way with the dealing and selling of macaws of any species, let alone Hyacinthine Macaws.  This website has always been dedicated to just providing news and information on the conservation and legitimate keeping of blue macaws in aviculture where permitted as well as historical data.
