This is Part of the “ara” series where every parrot of the genus ara is the object of a game of words. In this case, the red and green macaw (ara chloropterus), rests on a detail of the ruins of the Ara Pacis Augustae in Rome, together with three monk parakeets, native to South America but now feral in Rome.
