Green Winged Macaw - Ara Chloropterus

The green-winged macaw can be readily distinguished from the scarlet macaw. While the breast of both birds are bright red, the upper-wing covert feathers of the green-winged macaw is mostly green but can occasionally sport a few yellow feathers above the band of green. The scarlet macaw has a yellow band of feathers on the wings.. In addition, the green-winged macaw has characteristic red lines around the eyes formed by rows of tiny feathers on the otherwise bare white skin patch; this is one of the biggest differences from a scarlet macaw to the casual viewer. Iridescent teal feathers are surrounded by red on the tail. If seen together, the green-winged macaw is clearly larger than the scarlet macaw as well.

In terms of length, this species is second only in size to the hyacinth macaw, the largest of the macaws. The green winged macaw attains a total body length of 90 to 95 cm (35 to 37 in) in adults. While its weight range is broadly similar to that of the hyacinth, the average weight of the green winged macaw is slightly surpassed by both the hyacinth and great green macaws.

Zelda and Zachary were acquired from AZ Parrots as Dee started to wind down operations following the death of her husband Gerry. They are both 20 or 21 and have given us 3 chicks in the last 2 years.
