Lear's macaw, indigo macaw (Anodorhynchus leari)

English: An painting by Edward Lear of a Lear's Macaw, which he had originally mistakenly described as a Hyacinth Macaw (before Lear's Macaw had been identified as a separate species)
Date 1870s (approx)
Source Originally a painting by Edward Lear posted to flickr at Macrocercus hyacinthinus. Hyacinthine maccaw
Author Edward Lear (1812–1888)

Lear's macaw (Anodorhynchus leari), also known as the indigo macaw, is a large all-blue Brazilian parrot, a member of a large group of neotropical parrots known as macaws. Lear's macaw was first described by French ornithologist Charles Lucien Bonaparte in 1856, but in 1978, the rarely seen bird was considered a distinct species when ornithologist Helmut Sick finally located the wild population. It was named after the poet, author, and artist, Edward Lear, who published many drawings and paintings of live parrots in zoos and collections. One of his paintings in his book Illustrations of the Family of the Psittacidae, or Parrots strongly resemble this species, although at the time it was believed to be a hyacinth macaw — a species which is larger, darker, and has a differently shaped patch of yellow skin adjacent to the base of the bill. Order: Psittaciformes, Superfamily: Psittacoidea, Family: Psittacidae, Subfamily: Arinae, Tribe: Arini, Genus: Anodorhynchus, Species: Anodorhynchus leari (Bonaparte, 1856).
