CAMPO GRANDE, Brazil – A pair of rare macaws was photographed Monday afternoon making love on a frond of a coconut tree in Plaza Ramez Tebet, in downtown Tres Lagoas, 240 miles from the Mota Grosso do Sul state capital, Campo Grande. The photograph was posted on the G1 MS news website.
According to residents of the town, the rare parrots are a constant presence in the area and appear to be very much in love. They are said to make a lot of noise, day and night, and some even say that you can hear them professing their mutual adoration to each other.
According to globio.org, “Macaws are very intelligent and sociable animals. Courting macaws preen and “kiss” each other—trading gentle beak-to-beak bites. They are curious and playful, spending a lot of time with friends and family. They can also be really noisy. Like other parrots, pet macaws can imitate human speech. They explore, investigate interesting objects with feet and tongues, and chew things to keep their beaks in shape. They also take frequent baths.”
