Ara macao

The scarlet macaw (Ara macao) is a large red, yellow, and blue South American parrot. It originally lived in humid evergreen forests of tropical South America. However, pet owners and animals traders have spread the macaw’s range. That’s because some have purchased macaws as pets and then released them (either on purpose or accidentally.) For this reason, scarlet macaws occasionally show up as far away as Miami or Hawaii.

That said, the bird’s natural range extends from south-eastern Mexico to the Peruvian Amazon, Colombia, Bolivia, Venezuela and Brazil. It is the national bird of Honduras.
