Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small green macaw of lowland rainforest. Favors swampy areas, especially those with palm trees, which it uses for nesting. Frequently calls in flight, a pleasant rolling “greeah.” Red belly can be hard to see at a distance, but is diagnostic if seen well. Similar to Chestnut-fronted Macaw, which has maroon (not yellow) underwings, white (not yellow) facial skin, and a pale (not dark) eye.
