Ara atwoodi

Clark, the zoologist and binomial authority on the parrot, initially included these macaws in Ara guadeloupensis. On discovering Atwood's writings, however, Clark listed them separately, considering them distinct

The Ara atwoodi is classified as Extinct (EX), there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died.

Ara atwoodi is a chordate, or more specifically a bird, in the Psittacidae family. Ara atwoodi is commonly known (its common name) as the Dominican Green-And-Yellow Macaw in English. Ara atwoodi is classified as extinct by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of plant and animal species maintained by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.

Summary Ara atwoodi is known only from the writings of Atwood in 1791, and was endemic to Dominica2. It is thought to have become extinct in the late 18th or early 19th century. Ecology: Nothing is known, although it is likely to have been typical of its genus. Threats Atwood notes that birds were captured both for food and pets2, and presumably this persecution led to their extinction. References 1. Clark (1905d). 2. Clark (1908). More

Guadeloupe, Ara atwoodi on Dominica, and Ara martinica on Martinique. (Rothschild 1907; Williams and Steadman 2001). An ulna (elbow bone) has been found on the adjacent island of Marie Galante (Guadeloupe, France), suggesting it also occurred there (Williams and Steadman 2001). This bone could possibly be of the Guadeloupe Red Macaw, but it can also be from a different subspecies or even another species. More
