Macaws, with their brilliant plumage of yellow, red, blue and green, have come to the skies around downtown Indianapolis. As the newest attraction at the Indianapolis Zoo, the stunning tropical birds have been exploring their new habitat and flying freely around the zoo grounds.


Trainers have been teaching flocks of macaws to traverse the airspace over the zoo, as the birds will be released at select times during the day to fly above guests.

See Thursday’s Daily Journal for more photos and to learn about the newest exhibit.
