Scarlet macaws are found high in the canopy of rainforest habitats below 1,000 m.
In forest canopy, in the protection of the thick foliage, they are camouflaged so predators are less likely to spot them.
That these birds are critically endangered is because of humans. Victims of human greed, they are poached so that some family can have an ‘exotic’ bird.
