Ara – Aras

These vibrant birds are often spotted in the wild, sitting on a perch, vividly arguing with each other

These parrots have long tails and astonishing plumage with predominantly red color observed in three species, green in four species, and blue-yellow in two species. Interestingly, the male and female birds (or adults) don’t differ in plumage.

You’ll be astonished to see them flying as they expose hidden yet glaring feathers. They make demanding pets but do pretty well for themselves in the wild. Their ability to mimic along with eye-catching dazzling beauty turns out to be more of a problem as they fall prey to cruel bird hunters and illegal trading.
