Red-and-green Macaw

Scientific Name: Ara chloropterus

Population Estimate: Unknown, but Least Concern status

Range / Habitat: Lowland moist forest throughout South America.

Field Notes: Large macaw, primarily red. But with green on wings, noticeable during flight. This is what helps differentiate the otherwise known Green-winged Macaw from the Scarlet Macaw.

Personal Notes: Seen at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
