Loudness: The Hyacinth Macaw has a voice that matches his large size. This is a noisy parrot, and this must be taken into account before purchase.
Talking Ability: Hyacinth are capable of speaking though generally not as well as African Greys or Amazons parrots.
Notes: The Hyacinth Macaw is the Rolls-Royce of Parrots. The statement "WOW!" pretty much sums up this huge, beautiful bird. The Hyacinth Macaw has a massive black beak and feet, and is covered head to foot in rich and deep Hyacinth blue, with the only other colors on the bird being a rich, vibrant yellow eye ring and a cresent shaped patch of skin around the lower mandible. The yellow cresent gives the interesting illusion that the bird is smiling

Besides their gigantic size, another thing should be noted about Hyacinths, they are specialized feeders. Hyacinths eat the nuts of the Scheelea Palm and the Atalea Palm in the wild. In captivity, they are fed macadamia, Brazil, filbert, walnut, almond, pecan, peanuts and coconuts, because they do require more fat and carbohydrates and less protein than other parrots. The diet is supplemented with fruits, vegetables and pellets. These birds eat a LOT. As an interesting aside, it takes nearly five months to wean a baby Hyacinth.

Hyacinths have a wingspan reaching nearly four feet. This needs to be taken into consideration when planning for a cage. They need a great deal of space. As far as disposition goes, generally, these birds are sweet, gentle, affectionate and even-tempered.

The Hyacinth Macaw is smart and inquisitive. Those lucky enough to own these magnificent birds need to make sure to provide them with lots of toys. They are avid fans of chewing and can be quite destructive if not given plenty of toys to play with.
