The Hahn’s macaw is one of the more popular mini-macaw species. Mini macaws have the same physical attributes as their larger macaw cousins but in scaled-down proportions. They are a favorite of macaw fanciers due to their compact size, intelligence, and superb pet quality. Though Hahn’s macaws are not as flashy as larger macaws, they, along with their close cousin, the noble macaw (Ara Nobilis humaneness), are highly prized for their “large macaw” personality in a mini-macaw body.

Remember, too, that macaws are extremely intelligent birds and need a lot of stimulation to maintain a healthy attitude. Depressed or unhappy macaw can develop neurosis and self-mutilating disorders. These birds are reported to live for more than 40 to 50 years if cared for properly.
