Cuban Macaw (tricolor)

Ara tricolor (tricolor) (= Ara tricolor) (Bechstein, 1811)

The Cuban Macaw, also known as the Cuban Red Macaw, (Ara tricolor) is an extinct species of parrot that was native to Cuba and the Isla de la Juventud, an island off the coast of west Cuba. At about 45–50 centimetres (18–20 in) long it was one of the smaller members of the Ara genus of macaws. It was the last species of macaw native to the Caribbean islands to go extinct. Several skins are preserved in museums; however, no eggs have survived. Source: Wikipedia
