Hello Bright Colored Bird
Hello! We went birding today! We were looking for one of the most brightly colored and gorgeous macaws on the planet. Come meet them with us!
Scarlet Fun Facts:
- There are two subspecies of scarlet macaw. We met the North Central American Scarlet Macaw.
- They have blue on their wings and not green. They are also larger than their South American cousins.
- They weigh around 2 lbs and grow up to 32 inches long.
- Scarlet macaws eat fruits, nuts and seeds.
- They mate for life.
- Chicks leave their parents after about a year.
- They have a life span of around 40-50 years.
We enjoyed watching these beautiful birds. They are social and intelligent. They are kept as pets, which is often a bad idea. They have long life spans and are very high maintenance. They can also be very destructive.
They are truly beautiful.
