Green-Wing Macaw Colors and Markings
The green-wing macaw is one of the most recognizable of all the parrot species. These bright birds are a deep vibrant red on the head, shoulders, and breast with a greenish band below the shoulders and wings. The green band transitions to dark blue on the wings, and there is light blue on the rump and on the tail feathers.
The long tail feathers are red, tipped in blue. The legs and feet are a deep gray, and the beak is horn-colored with a black lower mandible. The bird has eye patches on the face. Males and females are indistinguishable, except that males are slightly larger. To figure out the sex of the bird, it will need DNA testing or surgical sexing.
Speech and Sounds
These parrots are not often noisy. This makes Green Winged Macaw a good choice for large apartments. They have loud, tropical calls, but these are only heard in moments of excitement. Otherwise, they’ll stick to talking- another thing they’re good at. These goofy big birds love to repeat new words and mimic the sounds they hear every day. You will fall in love with their antics and chatty exclamations in no time!
Just like all the other macaws, they too have a beautiful, tropical and unique plumage. Most of the body is colored in a striking, bright red. The main distinct parts are on the wings. The top is red, the middle bright green, while the lower portion of the wing is bright blue. The bare patch of skin around the eyes is white, with a few red lines that are made out of tiny feathers. The upper part of their powerful and large beaks is white, while the lower part is black. The whole mix of striking, exotic colors makes the Green Winged Macaw stand out.
