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 19th.
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
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.
