Lost Macaws by caramitten Lost Macaws by caramitten
Cuban Red Macaw and Glaucous Macaw. More extinct parrots (or probably extinct--in the case of the Glaucous), because I'm a sucker for drawing depressing things. Ballpoint pen and watercolor.

Lovely portrait! The Glaucous looks so cheerful... and they both look like they're up to no good. :3

I showed this to my wife, who is a tropical bird fan (and we both own tropical birds), and she loved it!

Very pretty, but very sad. When were they declared extinct? I actually keep up with animals pretty well, but I didn't know there were extinct macaws. Not that it really surprises me, sadly :(

Thanks :} The Cuban Red macaw went extinct in the mid-to-late 1800's, and no credible evidence of living Glaucous macaws have been found since the 1960's. They've probably gone the way of the Cuban Red and so many others...

I assume that the Glaucous was largely done in by the pet trade and habitat loss? But what about the Cuban Red? What happened to them?

Same :( Wikipedia also says that they were hunted for food, even though they tasted lousy.
