Drone View of the Sanctuary Macaws

For those who get dizzy easily, watch with caution!

We have many macaws that live throughout the property, and their beauty always impresses. When Scott was taking some recent aerial drone video of the property, a small group of the birds circled the drone for a while – perhaps wondering what it was they were seeing alongside them in the sky.

Scott was able to pan the camera around and catch them in the air. More macaws continued to fly in front of the camera, showing off their gorgeous colors against the natural background. You might get a bit dizzy, because the camera has to move quickly to keep up with the birds. Watch until the end for a stunning finale!

    I live in the middle of complete urban-world. This is so beautiful and calming. I love that the ladies (and caretakers) live in such a pure environment with the only sounds being what belongs there. Thank you for posting!

    OMG! So beautiful. Loved the carnival style ride! I would love for Scott to take us on a tour twirling around more slowly, so that we could get a better look. Where are the boundaries of the property?

      you can’t really see any of the property boundaries on that video. in the distance is the North boundary. it is a very steep hill/cliff face.

    Almost brought tears to my eyes seeing them. The sun glinting off their feathers. Lovely film work. Imagine the days when the flocks were huge and it was primary forest. Is there much re-wilding happening with the change in use of this land? The UK is one of the most nature depleted countries in the 🌍

      SEMA, the state agricultural agency actually came to the property to document the benefit the elephants were having on the land for the local flora and fauna. we see it improve every year. it’s wonderful.

    I slowed down the speed on the video and could really enjoy seeing the macaws fly. An amazing paradise you have there!

    I feel like I am watching a Disney movie! So beautiful. What a haven for our friends on the ground and those in the air.

    Those drone videos are truly breath taking! I sound like a broken record saying constantly what a magical place you have found and chosen for those poor captive elephants! It is a truly amazing place with healing powers. Our girls are constantly dancing with joy. They radiate good health, healthy energy and joy. Pocha and Guille will probably think they were kidnapped by aliens and transported to another Universe and new planet..:-)))) Thank you! You are our heroes. Forever grateful for your all you do…xoxoxo
