Living with a Scarlet Macaw ' The dazzling Scarlet is the flagship species of the parrot world, suggests EB Cravens. He explains why these macaws are one of the most desirable parrots on earth, being individualistic, impetuous and good talkers.

Manning has 25 years experience of successfully breeding them, which he shares with us. How important is early socialisation in breeding success?

The Blue-throated Macaw was declared '€˜critically endangered'€™as soon as its presence in the wild was documented.
