Ara chloropterus (Red-and-green Macaw)

Synonyms: Ara chloroptera

Wikipedia Abstract

The Green-winged macaw (Ara chloropterus), also known as the Red and Green macaw, is a large mostly-red macaw of the Ara genus. This is the largest of the Ara genus, widespread in the forests and woodlands of northern and central South America. However, in common with other macaws, in recent years there has been a marked decline in its numbers due to habitat loss and illegal capture for the parrot trade.
