Spix's macaw

Spix's macaw (Cyanopsitta Spixii), also known as the little blue macaw, is the world's most endangered bird native to Brazil. They are now extinct in the wild with 70 individuals in captivity. In the movie Rio and the sequel, Blu, Jewel, and their kids; Carla, Tiago, and Bia are officially Spix's macaws, not Hyacinth macaws. It was also first described in 1832. With Nigel the cockatoo, cockatoos are not from South America, they're actually from Australia. We have to save them before they go extinct.
