    Macaw Mountain, Honduras

    March 28 in Honduras ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Bird sanctuary located in the forest just outside of Copán Ruinas. The mission is primarily rehabilitation, recovery and release where that is possible. Many of the birds are former pets, some so damaged, either physically or are so imprinted on humans, that they cannot be released. They also breed those ready to do so with the goal of releasing into those habitats where the species us naturally found. Birds heavily imprinted on humans are kept separate where they get to interact with visitors, as with the 3 macaw species in the first pic. After that there are barn owls, paraleet (that's not a typo), toucan, king vulture and a cloud forest parakeet.Read more
