Hahn’s macaws are the smallest and the most popular among the miniature macaws. These compact and playful parrots make excellent pets that form solid bonds with their owners. Capable of learning many tricks and behaviors, they can become good talkers with practice. This species is an excellent option for a bird lover who wants a macaw but does not have enough space for one of the big guys.

Like larger macaws, the Hahn’s mini macaw is very intelligent and quick to learn vocalizations and tricks, including opening the cage door. When hand-raised, a Hahn’s macaw can make a wonderful pet. Owners will be charmed by their antics. Hahn’s are active birds, always on the lookout for something fun to chew or climb on, so watch out for your furniture and drapes.

Hahn’s mini macaws are far more appropriate for children than a larger macaw is. They are easier to handle because of their smaller size, and their sweet temperament makes them less prone to nipping. However, take caution where birds and children are concerned — there is always the potential for injury on both sides.

Speech & Sound

Hahn’s macaws are between 12 and 14 inches long, making them more suitable for apartment living than a large macaw — but only if your neighbors are deaf. These are noisy birds, especially if you have more than one. Their voices are grating — Hahn’s are not the most pleasant-sounding birds in the parrot family.

Hahn’s macaws can be wonderful talkers, however, and will learn many words and phrases. Hahn’s macaws are good whistlers, too, but may take to whistling over talking, so teach them to talk before you give whistling lessons.

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.

Hahn’s Macaw Colors and Markings

Mature Hahn’s macaws are primarily green with a darker greenish-blue cap of feathers on their foreheads. They have a spot of bright red on the undersides of their wings, which explains their “red-shouldered macaw” nickname.

This bird’s beak is black with a beige to white color in the upper beak. Their eyes are a burnt orange color, framed by the macaw’s classic white eye-rings.

Hahn’s macaws have black feet that seem to be oversized for their small body, though they are quite agile. To accommodate climbing and the handling of food and other objects, two of their toes point forward while two toes point toward the back. You can’t tell males and females apart by looking at them. For accurate sexing, this species requires genetic testing or surgical sexing.

These macaws are sometimes mistaken for noble macaws. The Hahn’s macaw is smaller, and the noble macaw’s beak is entirely beige. If you are familiar with sun conures, Hahn’s macaws are about the same size.
