Macaws are native to Mexico, Central America,South America, and formerly the Caribbean. Most species are associated with forests, especially rainforests, but others prefer woodland or savannah-like habitats. Their large, dark (usually black) beaks, and relatively bare, light coloured, facial patch areas distinguish macaws. A macaw’s facial feather pattern is as unique as a fingerprint.
Some of the macaw species are known for their impressive size. The largest parrot in length and wingspan is the Hyacinth Macaw. The heaviest macaw is the Buffon’s. Here at Pafos Zoo we have over 11 different species of Macaw.
