Discover the characteristics of our Exotic Macaws

Scarlet Macaws

The scarlet may catch your eye at first because of its brilliant plumage, but you remain fascinated by it because of its personality. Scarlet macaws are energetic, clever birds with a lot of personality. Hand-raised or hand-trained scarlet macaws can be quite affectionate. They have a pleasant personality and are wonderful company. Small groups of scarlet macaws coexist in the wild. This bird can become attached to you as a flockmate if you maintain it as a solitary pet. Scarlet macaws are eccentric birds that might develop fixations on specific individuals. Teach children to interact with all family members from an early age to prevent this behavior. Families with young children who are not yet able to comprehend bird warnings might not be the best candidates for this bird.

Catalina Macaws

The stunning Catalina macaw is the offspring of the scarlet, blue, and gold macaws. This combination is the result of selective breeding and is extremely rare in nature. The end result is breathtaking, with wingspans of vibrant color and personalities to match. Catalinas are typically circulated by dedicated breeders who specialize in this mutation! If you've spotted the Catalina macaw, you're probably eager to learn everything you can about this rainbow beauty. This hybrid is made up of blue and gold macaws mixed with scarlet macaws. These parrots are known for their amusing personalities and interactive tendencies. They make excellent pets for experienced owners who understand the basics of these amazing birds.

Blue & Gold Macaws

One of the most well-liked giant parrots is the blue and gold macaw, which is stunning, engaging, wise, and regal. These stunning creatures in vivid colors are much more than simply attractive faces; they are brimming with character and hilarious appeal. They are among the better-known birds in the world and make wonderful pets for those who are able to care for a big parrot that needs lots of attention. Blue and golds perform very well in acclimating to various people and other birds when given the opportunity to associate with a variety of people! They have a vocabulary of about 20 words and phrases that they can learn. Many people believe them to be among the best talking parrots due to the clarity of their voice.

Military Macaw

The military macaw is a gentle, easy-going bird. They rarely live alone in the wild, preferring to live in pairs or flocks of 10 to 20 birds. It is not uncommon for this bird to prefer one person or even one gender in captivity. It is critical to expose it to a wide range of people so that it remains friendly in all social situations. They can act as a "watch bird," alerting you when something isn't quite right around the house. For example, they may call out to alert you when a stranger approaches the door. Routines appeal to military macaws. It can usually predict when you will arrive home and when dinner will be served.

Green-wing Macaws

The green-wing macaw, which is only second in size to the hyacinth macaw as the largest parrot species, is often referred to as a "gentle giant" due to its calm demeanor. Its brilliant color and temperament make it a popular family pet for those with children, but it takes space and time to care for such a large bird. The green-wing macaw, despite being one of the gentlest parrots, can be taught to speak about 15 words but is not known for its talking ability.

Harlequin Macaws

The Harlequin Macaw is a lovely, well-known hybrid parrot that would make an excellent pet for the right person. Macaws are needy birds that require skilled or dedicated parrot handlers. This large macaw does well with families; these birds thrive on socialization and interaction with other birds or people. They have amusing personalities, are good talkers, and are friendly. The term "harlequin" has two meanings that are perfectly suited to this bird. It refers to a joker or clown in one sense, which perfectly reflects its personality. It can also mean "variations in color and pattern," which is a fitting description for this stunning rainbow-colored parrot. Harlequin macaws are only found in captivity and are extremely rare in the wild. This bird is classified as a first-generation hybrid because it is a cross between two "true" macaw species, the blue and gold macaw and the greenwing macaw. As a result, the bird has the coloring and characteristics of both parents. Harlequin macaw hybrids are "the best of both worlds." The harlequin's parent species have laid-back, affectionate personalities with good speech abilities and high intelligence. They can be taught fun tricks such as waving, dancing, fetching, and other activities.

Hyacinth Macaw

The largest parrot is the stunning cobalt-blue hyacinth macaw. It is a rare and endangered species that should only be kept by a dedicated owner who can provide for needs as large as the bird itself. For good reason, this is a bird that is more common in zoos than in private homes. A rare owner has the time, patience, and financial resources to care for a unique and sensitive bird nearly the size of a bald eagle. Despite its intimidating appearance due to its enormous size and powerful, sharply hooked beak, the hyacinth macaw is a gentle giant. Hyacinths are naturally gentle. They respond well to positive reinforcement and form strong bonds with their human caregivers.

Severe Macaw

Severe macaws are the largest of the mini macaws, and they are both attractive and charmingly easygoing. These birds pack a lot of personality into a smaller, more manageable package. They are also excellent communicators and enjoy socializing with their human companions. The severe macaw's larger-than-life personality makes it a favorite among bird enthusiasts. Severe macaws bond quickly with their owners with adequate socialization, responding well to training, learning tricks, and boasting impressive speech abilities. Severe macaws are also inquisitive. They enjoy puzzles and games and are easily swayed by shiny objects. Keep your jewelry out of reach; it could be damaged unintentionally. One peculiar trait that appears out of place in this friendly species is that they dislike excessive touching. They often prefer to be near their owner or on their shoulder, but in most cases, this parrot does not enjoy cuddling or petting.

Camelot Macaw

They are full-sized macaws who are extremely bright and inquisitive. They can learn to communicate using a general vocabulary of 15 or more words or expressions. Because hybrids are typically selected for color rather than personality, their characteristics can be unpredictable.
A Camelot macaw is a second-generation mix of a Scarlet and a Catalina macaw. Today, the Camelot Macaw is a popular multiple-generation hybrid macaw. Camelot macaws are not uncommon unless they are yellow dominating. Although the color combination of orange and green Camelot macaws can be fairly stunning, novices frequently refer to them as "yellow." Camelot macaws are available in a wide range of hues. The assumption that they are all primary yellow is false. Camelot macaws with yellow-predominant plumage are the exception, not the norm.

Hahn's Macaw

The smallest and most popular of the miniature macaws are Hahn's macaws. These small and playful parrots make wonderful pets that form strong bonds with their owners. They are capable of learning a variety of tricks and behaviors and, with practice, can become good talkers. This species is an excellent choice for a bird enthusiast who wants a macaw but does not have enough room for one of the larger birds. Hahn's macaws are popular pets because they are intelligent and charming. However, keep in mind that, despite their small size, they have the personality of a larger parrot. Expect to spend many enjoyable hours watching their spirited antics. Because of their small size, they are ideal for birds.

Shamrock Macaw

Shamrock macaws (Ara macao x Ara militaris) are first-generation hybrids that are a cross between a scarlet macaw and a military macaw. Shamrocks are primarily bred for their vibrant colors, but some of them have a friendly disposition inherited from their parents. In terms of grace, they resemble their father (who is mostly scarlet) more than their mother. Shamrocks, like their parents, are mostly one-person birds who feel at ease in the presence of their preferred human. Some are timid and docile and make excellent companion birds, while others are excessively grumpy and difficult to understand, with mood swings and crankiness on occasion. They are also intelligent, and some can learn to communicate. Raising shamrocks is a difficult task because these birds require your assistance in opening up emotionally. If you are your pet's comforter, try to understand what it wants and when it wants it because each bird is unique and there is no universal rule for treating them. Furthermore, unless they form a strong bond, most of these birds are incapable of understanding their owner's mood. That requires you to lavish your pet with love and attention.

Ruby Macaw

The Ruby Macaw is a cross between the Scarlet Macaw and the Green-Winged Macaw. These lovely birds resemble Green-Winged Macaws in appearance but have more orange and yellow feathers on their backs and wings. These birds are first-generation hybrids, which means they are the result of a cross between two parent species that exist naturally in the wild but are bred entirely in captivity. Ruby Macaws are arguably the most beautiful Macaw species, and they also have wonderful personalities! The Ruby Macaw is bred primarily for appearance rather than personality, and they can inherit personality traits from either of their parent breeds. They are not as laid-back and docile as Green-Winged Macaws, but they do share some of the characteristics that Green-Winged Parrots are known for, such as lots of affection and close bonding with their owners. They are playful and inquisitive birds that enjoy exploring their surroundings and are known to be quite mischievous at times! They also have an abundance of comical personalities and inherit the intelligence and high energy of their Scarlet Macaw parents.

Capri Macaw

Capri macaws are renowned for their friendly and gregarious dispositions. They enjoy interacting with their owners and other birds because they are social birds. They can be fairly loud and enjoy playing with toys and other objects, just like scarlet macaws do. In addition to being intellectual, these birds can learn a number of skills. Great talkers, Capri Macaws can replicate many different noises, including human speech. They have a call that is comparable to the scarlet macaw's and is loud and distinctive. They frequently create a variety of noises, like squawks, cries, and other vocalizations, when they are happy or enthusiastic.

Blue-Throated Macaw

Blue-Throated Macaws are well-known for their raucous temperament and inquisitive disposition. They are more shy and secretive in the wild. Because of their curiosity and mischievousness, these birds can be quite a handful as pets. They are quite loud and boisterous, which might be a concern if kept in an apartment or even a house with neighboring neighbors. They are known to bite and nip, especially with individuals with whom they are unfamiliar or have formed a bond. However, given their size and powerful beaks, these birds can cause substantial damage with a single bite, especially if they attack a child's finger or hand. They are gregarious, though, and appear to enjoy the company of others once they are introduced. They are gregarious, though, and appear to love the company of people once they become accustomed to it, and they appear to build tight ties with their owners.
