The Glaucous Macaw (Anodorhynchus glaucus) is a large all blue South American parrot, a member of a large group of Neotropical parrots known as macaws. This macaw is critically endangered and generally believed to be extinct. It is closely related to the Lears Macaw A. leari and the Hyacinth Macaw A. hyacinthinus. In Guaraní, it was called guaa-obi after its vocalizations. If there are any left the population is assumed to be tiny (fewer than 50 individuals).

In the wild, the Glaucous Macaw (Anodorhynchus glaucus) is critically endangered. Native to South America, it belongs to a group called Blue Macaws, all of which are either extinct or at risk for extinction. Not sure I've seen this macaw before.
