Macaw Panel

There is presently considerable discussion on whether these birds are macaws or turkeys.  I was introduced to the panel with specific macaw statements by a film crew from Western Colorado, reported to be astro-archaeologist researchers.

However several knowledgeable people (one a noted author and researcher, the other a biologist and artist) have made observations and believe the birds to be turkeys:

The split tails are common to both birds and the Pueblo people at Mesa Verde refer to these figures as turkeys.

Macaws have two main tail feathers and all parrots have opposing pairs of toes for climbing.

We will continue to title this page the Macaw Panel until we hear more from the research community and until I confirm the observations.

This discussion does not refute the fact that this site in Montezuma Canyon is of interest to astro-archaeologists.
