The Macaw, p.113.

[Three Hundred Animals Contents]

IS the largest of the parrot kind, and painted with the finest colour Nature can bestow. The beak is uncommonly strong; and the tail proportionally longer than that of any parrots. Their voice is fierce and tremendous, and seems to utter the word “Arara,” which occasioned his going by that name in his native countries. The Macaw of St. Domingo is of a fine red colour, except some blue and yellow feathers about the wings. The flesh of this bird is much esteemed as an article of food in that island.
