The green-winged macaw inhabits low altitude tropical rain forests of Central and South America. It is the second biggest bird in the macaw family, after the hyacinth macaw. Green-winged macaws have a wingspan of about 125 cm with bodies measuring around 100 cm, and although they live in groups they mate with the same partner for life. Despite their large size, they are gentle, docile birds and live extremely long lives, having an average lifespan of 50 to 60 years in captivity. Their striking, brightly colored bodies allows them to easily camouflage themselves from predators in the Amazon, and also makes them very popular among birdwatchers. They possess an interestingly shaped beak which is extremely powerful, strong enough to break open tough nuts and other objects. Also, their tongue is very similar to the human tongue, meaning they are good at impersonating people’s voices. This paper craft model is about half the size of a real green-winged macaw.
