On December 19, 2012 as I was exploring a little bit the area around the North West side of Rincon de La Vieja Volcano (with my friend Luis Briceņo),
around Blue Rvier Resort, I had the chance to observe a pair of nesting Scarlet Macaws and managed to take photos of them. Scarlet Macaws have been showing
up more in the Northeast of Costa Rica suggesting an increase in their population, this sighting extends their territory to the Northwest.
The other closest site where they are seen is the Palo Verde area.
Site coordinates: 10°55'4.88"N / 85°19'3.02"O
