About the Golden-collared Macaw

Also known as: Yellow-collared Macaw

The Golden-collared Macaw is a small species of macaw native to central South America. Its main population occurs in the Pantanal of Brazil, northern Argentina, northern Paraguay and most of northern and eastern Bolivia. A second disjunct population occurs in far north-eastern Mato Grosso, south-eastern Pará and western Tocantins in Brazil.

The Macaw's plumage is green, with a distinct yellow collar that develops as the bird ages, with more vibrant colors found in mature birds.
