Carmen

Vancouver, British Columbia

(be sure to view Carmen in "original" size)
Carmen is a Green Winged Macaw which are the 2nd largest parrots in the world!
The stunning Hyacinth Macaws are the largest.
The native habitat of Green Winged Macaws are the rainforests of Panama,
southward down to Brazil and Argentina in South America.
Macaws almost always form bonded pairs and can live between 50-60 years.

Watch Carmen play with his best buddy Maria here:
