A magnificent and dazzling bird that soars in the skies of Central and South America. It wears a coat of emerald feathers, with splashes of sapphire and ruby on its forehead, back, and tail. It feasts on juicy fruits and crunchy nuts from the forest trees. It can fill the air with loud and cheerful sounds like other macaws.
The Great green macaw has a strong curved beak, which it uses to crack open nuts and seeds, its primary diet. This macaw is also known for its loud and raucous calls, often heard echoing through the treetops. With a wingspan of up to 1 m (4 ft), it is a powerful flyer capable of swift and agile flights across the forest canopy. However, this magnificent bird is also endangered, facing habitat loss and illegal pet trade threats.
