Hahn's Macaws - The smallest of all Macaws

The smallest of the macaw family and often referred to as a mini macaw the Hahn’s or Red-shouldered Macaw (Diopsittaca nobilis, Linnaeus 1758) originates from South and Central America. This small, robust species occupies a large range and occurs alongside many of the larger species of macaw such as the Blue and Gold, Scarlet and Green-winged. Lacking the bright gaudy colours and size that the large macaws possess they are renowned for their playfulness, character and small size. In fact the size and breeding of this macaw is more closely aligned with the larger Aratinga family of Conures. If it wasn’t for the small face patch it may well have been classified as one.


The Parrot Society of Australia Inc. is an incorporated, non-profit organisation founded in 1980. As Australia's leading parrot society, we take special pride in representing native species to the world as well the many foreign and exotic species held by our members.
