Red-and green Macaw (Ara chloropterus) is a large bird of the Psittacidae family (Parrots). It is exclusive to South America and, in Peru, it is easy to seen the species at the clay licks along the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers.
Uncommon in humid evergreen forest of the Amazonian lowlands. Easily recognizable by its red lines on a white face, most of the body red, with blue and green wings.
Can flock in considerable numbers at the clay licks in the Madre de Dios area, otherwise they’re not easy to find in the forest.
We have a special departure to southern Peru this March 2019 with great chances to see this species and other large macaws and parrots:
