Hyacinth macaws play an important role in their habitats by dispering the seeds and nuts they feed on. This allows seeds to be germinated, and for vegetation to grow throughout their range, providing a base for the rest of the food chain.

What adaptations do Hyacinth Macaws have?

Mighty Beaks

If a hyacinth macaw is intent on munching on a coconut, his beak can work its magic. Strangely enough, these birds, as with other types of macaws, sometimes even use their beaks as additional feet, since they help them maintain their clutches on trees. Their beaks help them scale things more easily.

nuts
The majority of the hyacinth macaw diet is composed of the nuts from specific palm species, such as acuri and bocaiuva palms. They have very strong beaks for eating the kernels of hard nuts and seeds. Their strong beaks are even able to crack coconuts, the large brazil nut pods, and macadamia nuts.

    I can not express how happy we are with Jungle Birds! From the very start the whole experience was amazing. From finding out the babies had hatched to receiving pictures throughout the entire process all the way until the day we picked her up he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Not only is our bird beautiful but she also has the best temperament and is as sweet as can be she loves all 3 of our kids. Jungle Birds continues to be a great resource for information as we grow to love our new family member. Quick to answer and talk through any questions we have. The love he showed towards our baby when we picked our girl up was great to see. It is evident that he has a passion for the work he does ensuring that the new family members are well taken care of and provides the resources necessary to help if any challenges arise. He truly wants the best for his babies and his friendly nature to help ensure success for them and their new families I believe it’s that passion that sets Jungle Birds aviary above the rest!

    I cannot say enough great things about JUNGLE FARM! The entire process was extremely stress free, and always felt that I could get in touch with them regarding updates and questions. We just picked up our baby male Hyacinth Macaw a few days ago, and the shipping process was so much easier than I had expected. The shipping container was fantastic and the bird starter pack came with SO many supplies and a great table top stand. Kiwi is extremely healthy with the sweetest personality. He is still adjusting to being in a new home, but I was shocked at how well he has tolerated so many new things. I have been able to put his harness on (my guy was harness trained), steps up with ease (I highly recommend using clicker training), lets us pet and scratch him/lift his wings, and is not screaming nor biting. As soon as we brought him home he instantly started eating and drinking, which is always a relief. It was very clear to me how much he had been handled during such a critical young age, he loves being snuggled right against us and is not favoring human males vs females at all. He has such an incredible personality, and is so smart! He already within the first couple days is picking up target training with positive reinforcement clicker training, which I find incredible considering he is only a few months old and in a new environment.
    Kiwi is now my ESA, and I cannot tell you how much I’ve already benefited from him emotionally. He will be making such a huge difference in my life, even my health.
    He has been such an incredible addition to our family. And we would like to thank David at Jungle birds farm for having such an incredible breeding pair to make our little guy along with all of the great care and training and handling that was done. We absolutely love him, and are already recommending to others to contact them if ever interested in any breed of bird 😊

    We are absolutely amazed with our experience with Jungle birds farms! You really can see how much they care about their birds and customers. Our new baby bird, Lily, surprised us from the start with how much she wants to be with you and how loving she is. On the first day we left the cage door open and she chose to come out to us. She just wanted to be with us. She is so gentle and loves to cuddle and have her head scratched. Thank you so much to all those at Jungle birds farms for all of the time and love you put into your birds. It is obvious by our Lily’s loving personality that she has been loved and cared for more than any bird parent could ever hope for!

    When we saw JBF‘s online post, featuring a stunning Hyacinth macaw following my long search, we knew something good was about to happen! From our initial inquiry, to regular check-ins regarding our bird’s weaning progress, to the day we met our bird, every step was pleasant and joyful. To be specific, it’s not only the bird which has made us feel good, but also our experience with Jungle birds farm.
