Macaws - The Minis

Guest Author - Mavis Metcalf

Mini Macaws are very much the same as the large Macaws, except for size and generally noise volume. The minis are mostly green and do not have the bright colours that some of the large ones do. They all have the bare skin on their faces the same as the large macaws do. They also all originate in South America.

Red-bellied Macaw – At 19” in length, the Red-bellied Macaw is the largest of the mini Macaws. This bird is mainly green with a reddish lower abdomen and a little bit of blue and yellow on the flight feathers.

Yellow-collared Macaw – is mostly green with a little black on the head, a yellow band across the back & side of neck, blue on the wings, and reddish brown on the tail.

Chestnut-fronted Macaw – is mostly green with a little reddish brown on the forehead and chin, red on front edge of wing and under wing, blue on outer flight feathers.

Lafresnaye’s Macaw - is very similar in appearance to the Chestnut-fronted Macaw, but is slightly larger.

Blue-headed Macaw – is mostly green with a blueish head, and flight feathers. Instead of the white bare skin on the face, this bird has black bare skin.

Illiger’s Macaw – is mostly green with red on the forehead, sides of abdomen and lower back.

Red-shouldered Macaw – is mostly green with blue on the forehead, red on the front edge of wing and under wingl

Noble Macaw – is very similar to the Red-shoulder Macaw, but with a horn-coloured upper mandible instead of a black one, and is a slightly larger bird.

Neumann’s Macaw – is the same in appearance to the Noble Macaw, but slightly larger.
