Continuation ... Today our first bird will be Nigel, the main antagonist of the Rio franchise.Birds from Rio and Rio 2 in real life blog №2
He's a sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita), one of the largest members of the family (smaller than yellow-tailed black cockatoo and palm cockatoo).

They amaze with their lifespan. These birds are very long-lived, and can live upwards of 70 years in captivity, although they only live to about 20–40 years in the wild. One cockatoo called Fred was still alive at 100 years of age in 2014.
Birds from Rio and Rio 2 in real life blog №2Found in wooded habitats in Australia, New Guinea, and some of the islands of Indonesia. In Australia, sulphur-crested cockatoos can be found widely in the north and east, ranging from the Kimberley to as far south as Tasmania, but avoiding arid inland areas with few trees. Within Australia, sulphur-crested cockatoos have also been introduced to Perth, which is far outside the natural range.
Here's our next character is the leader of the Red Macaw Tribe, his name is Felipe.
Like other members of this tribe, he is a scarlet macaw (Ara macao) (in Brazil, known as acaracanga, arara-macau or arara-piranga). It is the national bird of Honduras.

The scarlet macaw is a large red, yellow, and blue parrot. It is about 81 centimeters long. The average weight is about 1 kilogram.

The plumage is mostly scarlet, but the rump and tail-covert feathers are light blue, the greater upper wing coverts are yellow, the upper sides of the flight feathers of the wings are dark blue as are the ends of the tail feathers, and the undersides of the wing and tail flight feathers are dark red with metallic gold iridescence. Some individuals may have green in the wings.

It is native to humid evergreen forests of tropical Central and South America. Its range extends from south-eastern Mexico to the Peruvian Amazon, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela and Brazil, as well as the Pacific island of Coiba.
Today the scarlet macaw is found worldwide in captivity, but is best represented in captivity in the Americas.

Anotherr parrot, a blue guy named Peri.

In fact, this is just another Spix's macaw. Peri first appears when Nigel mistakenly perceives him for Blu. When Nigel attacked him, he soon realized that he wasn't Blu, but another Spix's macaw. From my point of view, it belongs to a different species, after all, his yellow mask (most likely made to distinguish the character from the background of others) and light blue plumage make him look like a Lear's macaw (Anodorhynchus leari). Lear's macaw, also known as the indigo macaw, in Brazil they are called arara-azul-de-lear.

It is endemic to Raso da Catarina, northeastern Bahia, Brazil. It is a threatened species due to animal trafficking and the destruction of its habitat, in addition to having a small population, estimated at around 1200 individuals.
I propose to take a break from the parrots for a while and introduce you to the next bird.
This pink bird is called roseate spoonbill (Platalea ajaja). A representative of this species is Kipo. Kipo is first seen shuffling along to the music when Blu, Jewel, Nico, Pedro, and Rafael enter the samba club.
The roseate spoonbill is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family, Threskiornithidae. "Spoonbill" is an allusion to its beak, which is shaped like a spoon.

This bird is 71–86 cm long, with a 120–133 cm wingspan and a body mass of 1.2–1.8 kg. Adults have a bare greenish head ("golden buff" when breeding) and a white neck, back and breast (with a tuft of pink feathers in the center when breeding), and are otherwise a deep pink. Like the flamingo, their pink color is diet-derived, consisting of the carotenoid pigment canthaxanthin.

It inhabits South America, the Caribbean and the southeastern coast of the United States.
This lovely quail completes this list.
This bird is a minor character in Rio 2. He is a wood quail. The wood quails are birds in the genus Odontophorus of the New World quail family, which are residents in forests in the Americas. These are shy species, and as a consequence are amongst the most difficult birds to study or even observe. The appearance of this bird cannot be accurately correlated with any particular species, so I will just show the species that are found in Brazil.

horus gujanensis)

Starred wood quail (Odontophorus stellatus)
