Green wings get along with most other macaws their size, so keeping two macaws together is fine, but don’t allow birds of different species to breed.
Macaws, including green-winged macaws, thrive on a nutritionally balanced diet, such as Lafeber’s Nutri-Berries and Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet Pellets, as well as fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy table foods. If properly fed and cared for, a green-winged macaw is reported to have a life span of more than 70 years.
The hyacinth macaw stunning cobalt-blue coloring and massive size will cause anyone to pause and take notice. Bright yellow around the eyes and at the base and the corners of the beak makes the largest of the macaw species appear to be in a perpetual smile. This is a parrot for someone who afford a hefty price tag and who has space to spare.
By nature, the scarlet is inquisitive and independent. They are good talkers and will pick up words and short phrases easily. Like other macaw species, they are highly intelligent and learn with lightening speed. They require consistent and well-defined boundaries and owners committed to providing the nurturing and stimulation that they need. With proper socialization when young and plenty of exercises, the scarlet makes an excellent companion.
