[Note Guidelines]
Macaws are large colorful New World parrots, classified into six of the many Psittacidae genera: Ara, Anodorhynchus, Cyanopsitta, Primolius, Orthopsittaca, and Diopsittaca. They are the largest birds in the parrot family in length and wingspan, though the flightless Kakapo is heavier. Previously, the members of the genus Primolius were placed in Propyrrhura, but the former is correct as per ICZN rules[1].

Parrots are zygodactyl, like woodpeckers, having 4 toes on each foot two front and two back.

They are native to Mexico, Central and tropical South America. Most species are associated with forest, especially rainforest, but others prefer woodland or savanna-like habitats.

They are called guacamayos in Spanish and araras in Portuguese.
