The scarlet macaw is one of six parrot species from Central America and northern parts of South America. The bird displays rich, red plumage. The large, white beak is ideally designed for feeding and producing loud squawks when its mouth is not full. It is also a powerful tool for navigation like gripping the side of this cage. This 32 inch, two-pound parrot is in the “Walk-A-Bout” section of the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch near San Antonio, Texas.
