Description:
A arara-vermelha (Ara chloropterus), também chamada arara-verde, araracanga, aracanga, arara-macau, ararapiranga e macau, é uma ave psitaciforme, nativa das florestas do Panamá até Santa Catarina, Paraguai e Argentina. A sua alimentação é baseada em sementes, frutas e coquinhos. A arara-vermelha mede até noventa centímetros de comprimento e pesa até 1,5 quilogramas. Cada postura é composta por ovos de cinco centímetros, incubados por 29 dias. O ninho dessa arara é feito em ocos de árvores, mas ela também se aproveita de buracos em paredes rochosas para colocar os ovos, os quais são chocados apenas pela fêmea, que fica no ninho. Quem cuida de garantir a alimentação tanto da fêmea como dos filhotes é o macho, que, nessa espécie, é fiel, mantendo a mesma companheira durante a vida inteira. ------------------------------------------ The Red-and-green Macaw (Ara chloropterus), also known as the Green-winged Macaw, is a large mostly-red macaw of the Ara genus. This is the largest of the Ara genus, widespread in the forests and woodlands of northern and central South America. However, in common with other macaws, in recent years there has been a marked decline in its numbers due to habitat loss and illegal capture for the parrot trade. The Red-and-green Macaw can be readily identified from the Scarlet Macaw as whilst the breast of both birds is bright red, the upper-wing covert feathers of the Red-and-green Macaw are mostly green but can occasionally sport a few yellow feathers above the band of green (as opposed to mostly yellow, or a strong mix of yellow and green in the Scarlet Macaw). In addition, the Red-and-green Macaw has characteristic red lines around the eyes formed by rows of tiny feathers on the otherwise bare white skin patch; this is one of the biggest differences from a Scarlet Macaw to the casual viewer. Iridescent teal feathers are surrounded by red on the tail. If seen together, the Red-and-Green Macaw is clearly larger than the Scarlet Macaw as well. It is second only in size to the Hyacinth Macaw, the largest bird of the macaw family. The wingspan of the Red-and-green Macaw can be up to 49 inches (125 cm), with a total body length of 39 inches (100 cm). A healthy adult will weigh between 1,250 and 1,700 grams (2.7-3.7 lbs). The Red-and-green Macaw has a very powerful beak which can generate a pressure of 2000 psi and can snap a broomstick in half. This powerful beak has evolved to crush or open even the hardest nuts and seeds. ---------------------------------------------- El guacamayo rojo o guacamayo aliverde (Ara chloropterus) es una especie de ave de la familia de los loros (Psittacidae), del orden Psittaciformes. Son grandes guacamayos que atraen la atención por su vívido y espectacular colorido, y su llamado estridente con el que se comunican durante el vuelo. Los ejemplares jóvenes se parecen a los adultos, pero tienen la cola más corta. Por lo general, se encuentran en parejas o en grupos pequeños, tal vez familiares; a veces se asocian con otros guacamayos, especialmente en tierra, donde se reúnen en grandes grupos para consumir arenas minerales expuestas. Se alimentan de semillas, frutas y nueces. Esta especie se distribuye en amplio rango por toda Sudamérica, desde el este de Panamá, noroeste y este de Colombia, este del Perú y Ecuador, toda Venezuela, las tres Guayanas, Brasil, nordeste y este de Bolivia y Paraguay y el norte de Argentina.
