We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
These brightly coloured Macaws have been reintroduced to the Ibera marshes and there are now around a dozen flying free. The project was created by CLT and is operated from Monterey, which is situated only 2km away from us as the crow flie. We are priviledged to see these birds in our garden and woodlands quite regularly.
They are very brightly coloured and make a tremendous noise. Predominantly fruit eaters, this individual seemed to enjoy the seeds of the Timbo tree.
They are large birds with good flying ability and appear very acrobatic when feeding on the trees.
