Great Green Macaw

Ara ambiguus

The Great Green Macaw , also known as Buffon's Macaw or the Great Military Macaw, is a Central and South American parrot found in Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador. Two allopatric subspecies are recognized; the nominate subspecies is found in Central America to northern Colombia, while ''A. a. guayaquilensis'' is found in western Ecuador and possibly south-western Colombia.

Appearance

Great Green Macaws are the largest parrots in their natural range, averaging 85–90 cm long and 1.3 kg in weight. They are mainly green and have a reddish forehead and pale blue lower back, rump and upper tail feathers. Tail is brownish red tipped with very pale blue. The bare facial skin is patterned with lines of small dark feathers, which are reddish in older and female parrots.

The Great Green Macaw appears superficially similar to, and may easily be confused with the somewhat smaller Military Macaw.
Green Macaw With so many birds on display I couldn't help but notice this macaw because it was the only one with such unique color. It was very proud, perched high as if he wanted the world to see just how majestic he was. Ara ambiguus,Great Green Macaw

Status

The parrot is endangered, and has been one of the key elements in the proposal for the formation of a new National Park in Costa Rica, Maquenque National Park. Already significant parts of the bird's existing habitat is covered by Nature reserves and other conservation projects.

Cultural

Buffon's Macaw is sometimes bred in captivity, having a less nervous personality than most other macaws, but it is still very rarely seen as a pet.
