Our Mission Team took a large group of WWH2H kids to the Mayan Ruins at Copan. The Ruins were amazing, however the Scarlet Macaw's there were fabulous as well.

These birds were very tame as you can see in the video. It was so very cool to see this large population of the National Bird of Honduras.

Scarlet Macaw facts

Revered by the Maya, Scarlet Macaws once flew in abundance over much of Central America. Today their numbers have drastically fallen, as the beautiful birds are under constant and sustained threat from deforestation and poaching. The Scarlet Macaw is now on the endangered species list.
The Scarlet Macaw is the national bird of Honduras. Fully grown, they weigh approx. 2 pounds and are close to 3 feet long. Mostly red, they also have bright yellow and blue coloring. They eat mostly fruits and seeds, and their squeaky call can be heard for miles. Left undisturbed, they can live for more than 50 years.
