Macaws are a dream bird for most people but they need lots of love, a good companion, an extra-large cage and lots of destructible toys. The macaw’s larger size means a louder vocal volume, and its large beak can be downright intimidating, especially to nonbird people. A well-socialized macaw can be affectionate, yet ready to rumble if in a playful mood. They will play with you anytime you are ready to play. Macaws can learn to intimidate people by lunging and play with you all day long. These Macaw parrots are beautiful and have very bright colors. They are part of the parrot family and there are several types. They originally come from rain forests in Central and South America. Macaws are very loud squawkers and screamers in their natural habitat echoes through the forest. There are plenty of nuts and fruit to blend in with and eat. They are extremely intelligent and very social birds. They have long tail feathers. They will sleep in the trees at night for protection and in the morning they will be out looking for snails, bugs, fruit and nuts. They actually mate for life; he feeds the female and the young. They are a very playful bird and make good pets if you put time and effort into training and socializing with them. That means training and learning all about the needs of these beautiful colored birds. There are several varieties that are extremely close to being endangered and they are the Hyac, Red-Fronted and also the Blue-Throated Macaws. Sadly, there are two types already extinct, the Glaucus, and the Spix Macaw are now gone from the wild. If you are interested in one of the Macaws, do your homework. Because remember if you take good care of your Macaw they can live very long. This is a lifelong commitment. These parrots need lots of room and a commitment to give them considerate amount of attention. Some of their downfalls would be that they are very noisy and apartment life is probably not going to work. They are a lot messier than the small parrot, but if you have the room and the commitment these parrots are wonderful. It is very important to know as much about the Parrot. Find out as much information you can, as this will help you with the discussion of the Macaw you want to pick.
The hybrid macaws — which include the miligold macaw, ruby macaw, shamrock macaw, bluffon’s macaw, calico macaw, catalina macaw, camelot macaw and the harlequin macaw — are offspring of the crossing of two macaw species. First-generation hybrid macaws are crossings between two naturally occurring macaw species. There are also second and third-generation hybrid macaws. Second-generation hybrid macaws have one parent that is a naturally occurring macaw species and one parent that is a first-generation hybrid macaw. A few third-generation hybrid macaws are the result of crossing hybrid macaws.
