hahn's macaw

The smallest of the Macaws at approx. 13 inches in height. The bird is primarily green, with red feathers under the wing. The Hahn has the distinctive macaw bald facial patch. Hahn's Macaw is also known as the Red-Shouldered Macaw, especially in Europe.

 

This bird is more easily trained than the larger macaws, and is more often recommended as a house pet than the other macaws, but can be loud.

Cockatoos

Cockatoos are similar to dogs in that they thrive on affection and touch but usually do not develop extensive vocabularies. African Greys, noted for their great talking ability, fall between these two personality categories, having traits of both. Greys tend to be more individualistic, so it depends on the Grey as to the kind of personality it may have.

 

Macaws

Macaws do not make ideal apartment pets because of their twice-daily screaming sessions, at sunrise and sunset, and their ability to dismantle anything they can easily reach, such as the apartment building! However, for those who have a suitable environment, macaws make great pets and can develop pretty good vocabularies and fascinating antics.

 

What to Look For.

Look for a bird that is interactive and interested in sights and sounds. Look for a baby that expresses interest and attention by puffing out its head and neck feathers, stretching its wings (singly with a leg out or both shoulders stretched straight up), bobbing its head up and down solicitously or quickly wagging its tail from side to side.

These easily observable happiness behaviors are indications that the bird is interested in what is going on.
