The Scarlet Macaw is the most spectacular species of parrot as colors are concerned. The national symbol of Honduras, this large parrot is perhaps the one bird companion any home in the world would like to have. Looks like parrots are gorgeous birds .
Scarlet macaws are the largest parrots in the world. They mostly eat nuts, leaves, berries, and seeds, but have been observed eating fruits poisonous enough to kill other animals. Scientists think they also eat clay to neutralize the plant toxins.
