There are around 376 species of parrot in the world and macaws are the biggest of them all. The larges species is the Hyancinth macaw which can have a wing span of up to 4 to 5 feet.
A macaw has a unique and individual appearance just like a human fingerprint is unique to one person. Ranging in color from the brightest red through to turquoise, yellow and bright indigo, these birds are a sight to be seen. What’s amazing is that each bird’s coloring is distinct to where they live and their vibrant colors actually blend quite well with the Amazon’s rainbow-colored plants and foliage.
Unlike the vast majority of animals, once macaws find a mate, they tend to stay together for the rest of their lives. They raise their babies together, groom one another and can be seen flying so close to one another it’s as if they are holding hands…we mean, wings.
