15 Incredibly Beautiful Birds

Hyacinth Macaw
The hyacinth macaw’s beauty is neither understated nor undersized: this bird, which makes its home in central and eastern South Africa, is the largest species of flying parrot in the world. Although these macaws are at the top of their food chain—with no known natural predators—they find themselves on the endangered species list, due to caged-bird trade and habitat loss.

All birds are beautiful. Although, cosmetically, vultures could use some help.
