Red-shouldered Macaw

About the Red-shouldered Macaw
Also known as: Noble Macaw, Long-wing Macaw, Hahn's Macaw

The Red-shouldered Macaw, a striking member of the macaw family, holds the distinction of being the smallest macaw species. This charming bird graces various regions of South America, including Venezuela, the Guianas, Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru, adding a splash of color and character to these locales.

Characterized by its long, narrow tail and proportionately large head, the Red-shouldered Macaw is a delightful sight with its vibrant plumage. Its body is adorned with a mix of greens, while the distinctive red patches on its shoulders give it its name, creating a striking contrast.

While the Red-shouldered Macaw is not currently considered endangered, its wild populations are facing challenges. Habitat loss, mainly due to deforestation and changes in land use, has led to a decline in their numbers. This situation highlights the importance of habitat conservation efforts to protect these beautiful birds and maintain the biodiversity of the regions they inhabit.
