    Action: changed name from "Ara macao" to "Ara chloroptera "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "The species in the photo is Ara chloroptera. This species is similar to Ara macao, but A. chloroptera is more robust and has stripes of red feathers in the face, while A. macao has a bare face and a great yellow portion in the wings. See the excelent book "Ornitologia Brasileira" - Helmut Sick, Nova Fronteira Ed. page 368 and Plate 16.
