Green Winged Macaw
Ara chloroptera
The Green Winged Macaw is one of the largest of the Macaws and can grow up to 90cms long with a wing span of up to 1.2 metres.
They inhabit forest, swamplands, open cavannahs, palm groves and along river banks in much of South America.
They feed on nuts, seeds, fruit and berries. They can also eat some poisonous fruit, which is neutralized when they ingest river clay.
Green winged Macaws are normally found in pairs or small family groups but can also group with other Macaws when they gather on the clay banks
Green Winged Macaws, like other Macaw species, are at risk of becoming endangered due to the clearing of their natural habitat and the hunting and trapping for the illegal bird tade.
These birds were bred locally here in the mid-west of Western Australia and are named Ernie and Bert.
Green Winged Macaws have very good eyesight and hearing and are noted for their intelligence and calm disposition.
