Red Fronted macaws are the smallest of the large macaws. Fairly rare and therefore not well-known, Red Fronted macaws are olive green with bright red on their foreheads, ear coverts, shoulders and socks. They are from one remote valley in Bolivia in South America. Red Fronted macaws are lovable, friendly smaller macaws, although they are still considered to be one of the large macaws. They have a body the size of a medium to large Amazon parrot with a longer pointed tail. Considered by many to be the ideal size of macaw, they are fun loving and become excellent talkers. They are quite the comedians.
Listed as endangered due to habitat loss.
