Blue-winged Macaw

Primolius maracana (Vieillot, LJP 1816)

The blue-winged macaw, in aviculture more commonly known as Illiger's macaw, is a species of small macaw found in central and eastern South America. The second name is in honor of the German ornithologist Johann Karl Wilhelm Illiger. It was previously placed in the genera Ara or Propyrrhura. Blue-winged macaws have been known to reach an age of 50–60 years. Source: Wikipedia
