Central Illinois Macaws?
Posted By: acbees, 04-27-2008, 09:02 AM

Don't have the full story on this. It's rumored they're from an owner who lives in a town about 20 miles south that has numerous pairs he lets out in the summer. Have also heard they come through this area every year. Have heard they're one of a few pairs that have adapted to the area (though with our winters that one's difficult to believe). Whatever, they've been seen around little towns near here for the last couple of weeks and they're in Lowder now. Not sure how long they'll stay. Had only been able to get some evening with high wind(other words for low light and PF) pictures until this morning when I saw them in our neighbors fruit trees eating blossoms. They also seem to like sitting in our catalpa trees eating seed pods.

Taken with the Tamron 70-300mm and K20 from about 25-30 ft. Some auto PP in Elements 6.

So Long from Tropical Illinois,

Somebody always has to blink!

A little straightening up before the next shot.


Looking for the best blossom.

Just climbing around.
