How to track and count Scarlet Macaws

Hi all, I would love to have some advise about a good option for tracking scarlet macaws in the wild with a decent accuracy but without carrying antennas and having lots of people involved.

Second, I am also developing a participative bird count and I wonder if there is an app, something like a symlified version of eBrid, where people could fill in data in a systematic way (location, date, pictures, commentaries) and we would get alerts when that happens. I do not know if I made myself clear enough.

Thanks, appreciate all your feedback

It might be worth looking at this NZ based participatory bird count - https://www.greatkererucount.nz/

I believe they based it on iNaturalist - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.inaturalist.android
