 The Glaucous Macaw   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
DISTRIBUTION The Glaucous Macaw (see Remarks 1) appears to be or have been endemic to the middle reaches of the major rivers (Uruguay, Paraná and Paraguay) and adjacent areas and watercourses in south-eastern South America, with most records coming from Corrientes province, Argentina.
POPULATION Lack of records of the Glaucous Macaw both in the wild and in captivity for most of this century has led to the near-universal view of its probable extinction, always however accepting a remote chance of its survival (Vielliard 1979, Ridgely 1981a, Sick 1985, Chebez 1986a, Forshaw 1989).
ECOLOGY The dependence of the Glaucous Macaw on riverine habitats (including their fringing subtropical forest) is strongly suggested by the consistency with which records (see Distribution) derive from along major rivers.
