Thanks for redoing this post. Two thoughts (questions more than critique) .. I'm guessing you were some distance away? Getting the feather detail sharp is sometimes a challenge.
Also, these Blue & Gold Macaws can vary lots in coloration, and these seem to have very dark (orangish) chests. Do you recall if they appeared that way when you were there?
I'm fairly sure that the zoo would have proper species and not hybrids .. there is a hybird version called Catalina which is a cross between Blue & Gold and Scarlet Macaw. They tend to have more 'orange-tone' breast feathering.

from what i recall these are pretty true to color, the zoo had tons of these so i guess it is possable they can be Catalina's. yes i was pretty far.

do you own birds?
