Military Macaw

Military macaw parrots are stunning birds native to South America and Mexico that are similar in appearance to the great green macaw but are slightly smaller in size. These birds owe their name to their eye-catching plumage that resembles the color of military parade uniforms.

While military macaw can make lovely pets, it’s worth noting that they are considered “Vulnerable,” so they shouldn’t be kept as pets. Nonetheless, hand-reared military macaws can become a cherished addition to any household, thanks to their sociable nature and bit of temper.


Due to their size, military macaws require a spacious cage that measures at least 36x48x60 inches. It’s best to keep the cage in a separate, soundproofed room to minimize noise levels. You should provide the bird with a sturdy perch, fresh fruit branches to chew on, and toys for enrichment. The macaw should have a few hours outside of the cage each day.

Behavior & Personality:

Military macaw are social birds that live in pairs or flocks in the wild. As pets, these birds are friendly, but they can be temperamental. A military macaw kept as a pet requires constant attention and enrichment, or it may develop health issues due to boredom. They tend to bond with one person, but with proper training and socializing, they can accept others too. If they feel threatened, they may bite, so it’s important to read their body language carefully.


Provide your military macaw with a diet consisting of sunflower seeds, walnuts, Brazil nuts, pecans, and pine nuts. You can also supplement their diet with vegetables and fruits like banana, corn on the cob, apples, oranges, cheese, and wholemeal bread. However, avoid feeding them avocados and chocolate as these can be toxic to them.


Clean your military macaw’s cage at least twice a week to remove droppings and uneaten food. Since these birds enjoy water, try to bathe them every day and regularly replace dirty food and water dishes with fresh ones.

In summary, if you want to be a responsible pet owner, you should avoid keeping vulnerable species like the military macaw. If you do decide to take care of them, it’s essential to provide them with a spacious and stimulating environment, consistent attention, and a well-rounded diet. With proper care, these beautiful birds can become integral parts of your family.
