The Red and Green Macaw achieves a wingspan up to 125 centimeters and a weight of up to 1700 grams and a total body length of up to 100 centimeters. Aside from the Hyacinth Macaw, it is the biggest species of the macaw family. Young Red and Green Macaws differ from adults. In contrast to old individuals, their iris is brown, not yellow and the lower beak isn’t black but grey.
Green-winged macaws are often mistaken for scarlet macaws; the green wing has facial feathers and green on its wing feathers instead of yellow. Green wings are heavier than blue-and-gold macaws and scarlet macaws. Green wings get along with most other macaw’s sizes, so keeping two macaws together is fine, but don’t allow birds of different species to breed.
