One of the most beautiful birds, the Green-Wing Macaw (Ara chloropterus) lives in South America east of the Andes mountains, north to Colombia and south to northern Argentina. Macaws eat hard shelled seeds, fruits, berries, and nuts they forage in the tree tops. With their powerful beaks, Macaws can exert up to several hundred pounds of pressure per square inch to crush nuts and seeds. Green-Wing Macaws can be seen in small flocks up to 30 members, and may live as long as 65 years or more.
