Genus Diopsittaca

Red-shouldered Macaw - The Red-shouldered Macaw , is representative of two distinct subspecies: Noble Macaw or Hahn's Macaw. Both are a small parrot native to the tropical lowlands, savannah and swamplands of Venezuela, the Guianas, Bolivia, Brazil, and far south-eastern Peru. It is the smallest macaw. These birds range from 30 to 35 centimetres in length, and have good speech mimicry. They are frequently bred in captivity for the commercial pet trade. They are not considered to be an endangered species, but wild populations have declined locally due to habitat loss. As most parrots, they are listed in Appendix II of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species, which makes the trade and export of wild caught birds illegal. This status greatly limits the ability to capture or sell wild birds.
