Simply put, a Macaw is a bird. More specifically, it is called a New World Parrot,
but most people don’t really consider the Macaw to be a parrot, because in the
grand scheme of things, when it comes to true parrots, only six types of Macaws
fit into that classification.

In the wild, Macaws are found in several different places, including Mexico, South
America, the Caribbean, and Central America. Macaws are found in both rain
forests and wooded areas.

Those who don’t really look hard enough see the Macaw as ‘just another parrot.’
Like parrots, the Macaw has a long and colorful tail. They come in a variety of
colors. They talk. They squawk. They do many things that parrots do. But if you
look closely, you will see that the facial pattern is different, as is the beak.

Macaws also come in different sizes. Some are small; some are ‘average’ sized,
while others grow to be quite large. In fact, among true parrots, the Hyacinth
Macaw is actually the largest in size.

Overall, seventeen different parrots are actually Macaws. Most types of Macaws
have no hair around their beak, which is one of the features that set them apart
from other parrots. Macaws in the wild are on the endangered species list.
