  • Description The Scarlet Macaw is the largest of all Macaws and also one of the most beautiful, because of its vibrantly colored plumage and long graceful tail. The young ones have dark eyes, while the adult birds have eyes that are light yellow in color. This type of bird has a big, tough beak and gripping toes that they use to hold onto branches and grab objects. Their typical diet involves fruits, nuts, seeds, snails, bugs, and other insects. They use their strong beaks in order to crack open hard seeds and nuts. The Scarlet Macaw makes loud, low-pitched screams and squawks, and can even mimic human speech. They also vocalize to mark their territory, communicate, and identify one another. They are monogamous birds and can be aggressive during breeding season. These colorful birds live in tropical rainforests, savannas, open woodlands, and humid regions of Mexico and the Amazon basin. They can be found in Honduras, Peru, Brazil, Guatemala, Bolivia, Panama, Peru, as well as in the islands of Coiba.

    Status The International Union for Conservation of Nature classifies the Scarlet Macaw as least concern because they still occur in huge populations in South America. Their habitat is fragmented and they are confined to small numbers scattered in the Middle America.
