Once widespread throughout the lowland and foothill regions of the country, Macaw populations have decreased alarmingly during this century. By 1950, they had disappeared from the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, and over the past four decades their status in Guanacaste has declined from abundant to (at best) uncommon. Today, your best chances of seeing Scarlet Macaws in the wild are on the Osa Peninsula and at Carara Biological Reserve. (From: www.costaricaoutdoors.com)
