Celebrate Macaw Day With Us

Published on Thursday, 13th July 2017

Military, Blue and Yellow, Green-Winged, Scarlet, Hyacinth...there are so many species of Macaw and we’re going to be celebrating them all on our Northern Parrots Macaw Day on July 20th.

This month it’s the turn of one of the larger Parrot species, the Macaw, to take centre stage. 

 Facts about Macaws
Rosemary Low has written interesting fact sheets on many of the more popular Macaw species, Scarlet Macaws, Blue and Gold Macaws, Green Winged Macaws and Military Macaws. Did you know for example that nuts are an essential part of a Green-Winged Macaws diet or that the Hahn’s and Red Fronted Macaws are the only Macaws who, when young, have a plumage noticeably different from adults? 


Rosemary Low discusses all this and more, including the personality, appearance, diet and conservation status of these Macaws, in her fact sheets. 

A number of Macaw species are endangered and we’ve highlighted some of the conservation projects that are working to increase their numbers, like this charity in Bolivia that is supporting Blue-Throated Macaws. 

Dot Schwarz has been caring and training her first Macaw Benni for a year now and has been charting his progress on our blog pages. Benni the Blue and Gold Macaw has been learning free flying, much to Dot’s trepidation. 
Everything you need for your Macaw
We have a huge choice of products for Small and Large Macaws.

There is scrumptious food to fill up your Macaw’s feeding dish with, including complete food so they receive all the nutrition they require in a balanced diet, and yummy treats, that could be a snack between meals or a positive reinforcement during training.

Choose from an impressive choice of toys to keep your Macaw entertained. There are all kinds of style of toys that are sure to stop your Macaw developing birdie boredom! 


As evening falls, keep your Macaw comfortable in a cage that’s spacious enough for them to play, eat and sleep happily. We have play top, open top, solid top and travel cages for when you and your bird are on the go.

Keeping your Small or Large Macaw fit and well is straightforward with our supplements. There are supplements to treat all Parrot problems like feather plucking and loss of appetite. 


Finally there is a massive array of accessories for Macaws. These are everything your Macaw needs to enjoy life inside and outside their cage.
