      Here is a quiz - let\'s see who can be the first ZooChatter to post a reply as to why they are called military macaws.

      I think they are called that because they were first imported into Europe from Mexico by men serving in the military there.
    • Ituri
      They are called military macaws because of their green "uniforms" and red "berets".

      Ituri is the winner. (Don't know what prize you get though). As I understand it, their feathers are the same shade of green as the Spanish military at the time.

      Congrats Ituri. Darn Kansas City Zoo docents...
