How do they reproduce?
The Hyacinth Macaws breed in tree cliffs and cavities of Panama trees, which is 157-551 in above the ground level. Though the mating season lasts for the entire year, the nesting period only typically falls from November to April during the wet season. They lay one or two to three eggs, and the incubation period of these birds is between 24-28 days. During this period, the female nests the eggs, and the male provides food like fruits, seeds, and nuts. The hatched newborn chicks further continue to stay in the nest for another 13 weeks and become independent post 18 months.
