Among the rarest birds in the world, blue-throated macaws are known for their brilliantly-colored gold and turquoise patterns on their feathers. Larger than blue and gold macaws, they’re distinguished by a blue stripe on their throats. They’re called the “barba azul” or “blue beard” in Spanish. Blue-throated macaws are found in a small area of north-central Bolivia, known as Los Llanos de Moxos. They inhabit tropical grasslands, flooded savannas, forest islands, and corridors of forests along waterways.
