The right macaw diet is the secret behind happy macaws. Macaws have been rightly called winged rainbows. Macaws are flamboyant, colorful, intelligent and captivating birds. Their personalities are legendary. Macaws make excellent pets because of their engaging personalities.

In the wild, the macaw diet consists of the yellow-orange flesh between the brown skin and the cherry-sized nut of the palm fruit. It has the consistency of a raw potato. This made up nearly 100 percent of the macaw diet. A healthy macaw diet would consist of daily servings of fresh fruits, veggies and warm meals. Dietary supplements such as vitamins are essential. Bowls of cooked rice and corn made up the staple macaw diet in Central and South America. In the United States, peanuts replaced the palm fruit.
