About Hahns Macaw
The Hahns Macaw is more easily trained than the larger macaws, and is more often recommended as a house pet than the other macaws. These birds are playful, active, talking and make great pets. Though some individuals are reported to be noisy, most will vocalize once or twice a day like most parrots, generally they are not considered very are a great alternative to the noisy large macaws for this reason.
Hahns Macaws are predominately deep forest green with dark teal on the top of their heads above their beaks, and crimson red at the bends of their wings on mature birds. They have white patches of skin around their eyes with small black feathers that trace patterns on their white facial skin.
Origin of the Hahns Macaw
Hahns Macaws are fairly common in their native habitat of semi-open lowland areas in eastern Venezuela, Guyana and northeastern Brazil. Their original habitats are in Rainforests and Savannahs.
With very high intelligence, the Hahns Macaw is easily trainable and amusing, with an outgoing and funny personality. Though they are not known to be the best talkers some individuals are reported to be good talkers.
- For those who are intimidated by the very large beak of the larger macaw species such as the scarlet, blue and gold, and green-winged macaws, you will find these medium-sized parrots can make great companions.
- Hahns Macaws crave loving and caring homes where they can be pampered well.
- They can often be quite good talkers, picking up many words and phrases as well as caricature laughter.
