Intelligent and charming, Hahn’s macaws are popular pets. Be aware, however, that while they may be small, they pack all the personality of a larger parrot into their compact body. Expect many fun-filled hours watching their spirited antics.
Their compact size makes them suitable for bird lovers who live in smaller spaces or anyone with children. However, these birds are not suited for apartment living; they can be quite noisy when they feel like it.
Overall, the Hahn’s macaw tends to be a very gentle bird. If you adopt a young bird, it may nip a bit, but they usually grow out of that habit. They will also calm down as they mature. When socialized, they can be sweet little birds that get along well with children as long as both parties interact appropriately with one another.
Speech and Vocalizations
Hahn’s macaws can be excellent talkers. With training, males and females can learn many words and phrases usually in a high-pitch but clear voice. But like the bigger macaws, Hahn’s macaws are screamers. And, if you get a pair of Hahn’s macaws, the noise will be twice as loud. Expect that this bird will assume the role of your morning alarm clock at sunrise.
