Scarlet Macaws used a greater number of tree species for nesting in ACOSA than ACOPAC (14 vs.
ACOSA Scarlet Macaws can coexist with moderate human development.
The high variability in cavity height, cavity location, tree height, and tree species suggests that ACOSA Scarlet Macaws do not select nest sites based on any one of these characteristics.
Availability of secure and popular ACOSA nesting trees might improve reproductive success of ACOPAC Scarlet Macaws, and vise versa.
Our initial survey of potential ACOSA Scarlet Macaw nests should be followed by long-term cavity monitoring, especially fledgling counts and nest cavity reuse studies.
2003b); ACOSA, where the Scarlet Macaw thrives, should do the same.
