macaws parrot Anodorhynchus Cyanopsitta Primolius Orthopsittaca Diopsittaca

macaws parrot Anodorhynchus Cyanopsitta Primolius Orthopsittaca Diopsittaca Macaws are small to large, often colourful New World parrots. Of the many different Psittacidae (true parrots) genera, six are classified as macaws: Ara, Anodorhynchus, Cyanopsitta, Primolius, Orthopsittaca, and Diopsittaca. Previously, the members of the genus Primolius were placed in Propyrrhura, but the former is correct as per ICZN rules. Macaws are native to Mexico, Central America, South America, and formerly the Caribbean. Most species are associated with forest, especially rainforest, but others prefer woodland or savanna-like habitats. Large, dark (usually black) beaks, and relatively hairless, light colored, medial facial (facial patch) areas distinguish macaws. Sometimes the facial patch is smaller in some species, and limited to a yellow patch around the eyes and a second patch near the base of the beak in the members of the genus Anodorhynchus, or Hyacinth Macaw. It has been documented that a Macaw's facial feathers are unique as a human fingerprint Some of the macaw species are popularly known for their impressive size. The largest parrot in length and wingspan is the Hyacinth Macaw. The heaviest macaw is the Buffon's, although the heaviest parrot is the flightless Kakapo. While still relatively large parrots, the macaws of the genera Cyanopsitta, Orthopsittaca and Primolius are significantly smaller than the members of Anodorhynchus and Ara. The smallest member of the family, the Red-shouldered Macaw, is no larger than some parakeets of the genus Aratinga. Macaws, like other parrots, as well as toucans and woodpeckers, are zygodactyl, having their first and fourth toe pointing backwards

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the vibrant beauty of macaws, a diverse group of New World parrots. With their striking colors and unique features, these birds belong to six different genera: Ara, Anodorhynchus, Cyanopsitta, Primolius, Orthopsittaca, and Diopsittaca. Native to Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean in the past, macaws are typically found in forested areas such as rainforests or woodlands. One distinguishing characteristic of macaws is their large dark beaks and light-colored facial patches. These patches can vary in size and color among species; for example, members of the genus Anodorhynchus have yellow patches around their eyes and near the base of their beak. Interestingly enough, a Macaw's facial feathers are as unique as a human fingerprint. While some macaw species are known for their impressive size - with the Hyacinth Macaw being both the longest and having the largest wingspan - others like Cyanopsitta, Orthopsittaca, and Primolius are relatively smaller. In fact, the Red-shouldered Macaw is no larger than certain parakeets from the Aratinga genus. Macaws possess zygodactyl feet similar to other parrots, toucans, and woodpeckers. This means that they have two toes pointing forward and two pointing backward. This stunning print captures not only the visual splendor but also highlights how each individual bird has its own distinct appearance just like our fingerprints do. The photographer Alamy has skillfully captured this moment showcasing nature's remarkable diversity without any commercial intentions.
