-“I want to know the whole story, how did you do it?”-“Ok, first I will tell you how we were caught because that´s the beginning. One fine morning, we were enjoying the sun and flying around when we suddenly heard human voices down in the jungle. The echoe reverberated all over the place and many birds rapidly flew away in flocks. We were shocked to see some men carrying guns and some squared sort of boxes which had bars from bottom to top and all around them. We didn´t know at that time, but then we learnt men called them cages. They were like prisions to keep you in forever. At the beginning, I thought nothing could happen to us because we were in the highest part of the canopy. A second later, I had changed my mind. I told my wife to stop flying and hide among the leaves of a palm tree. Our nest was on the tree beside the one we were hiding in. Apparently, the poachers had caught sight of it and wanted to reach it. “Oh no!” I thought. My babies were inside! I started to panic and began making as much noise as I could to call their attention. In the meantime, one of them started climbing up the tree. He must have found it quite difficult for he shouted bad words to his friends as he was getting higher. All of a sudden, a strong bumping noise could be heard and the poacher was on the ground crying out loud, complaining about having fallen. That was the moment when I felt relieved. I thought they would give up and leave. To my disappointment and despair, he stood up with a quick movement. He ordered the others to bring a machine with which they started cutting down our palm tree. Imagine! They were killing the tree and wanted our nest! Our babies! My wife started to cry. I screamed but my voice could not be heard, for the deafening sound of the machine made me dumb. The tree came down after some minutes. Those evil men took our babies from the nest. We flew around them to stop them from stealing our babies but it was useless. After a while we were inside a cage as well. Fortunately, they kept us altogether in the same prision,” said the macaw.
