I cannot agree more that yes this hybrid makes a beautiful macaw... but doesn't the fact that the Hyacinth is as rare and endangered as it is, make crossing it with another breed a bad practice. Personally I hope the breeder is still breeding straight hyacinths with the intention to better the breed and not just mixing it to sell "rarer" birds. The hyacinth being on the critical list should sort of discourage breeding like this but that is just my opinion.

    Breeding hybrids will encourage people to help both species.

I purchased the hyacinth/military hybrid from a Dr. Miller in Miami about 15 years ago. My first milicinth I named Samari and he was the most intelligent macaw I had and I had a bunch of them. He never ever used his beak, to climb up a person, on a shoulder even if a person he did not know squeezed him. His favorite trick was pretending he was dead - hanging from a light fixture and when someone would walk by he would jump on them. He turned the water on in the kitchen sink and showered. There is no end to how wonderfully gentle and smart this fella was.

I am extremely saddened at how far someone that calls themselves a breeder will go to make a hybrid. A Hyacinth is an endangered creature and should only be bred as a Hyacinth.

I realize (sadly) there is no governing of breeders and they have free will to breed however and whatever they want together and that includes mixing and matching. I would only hope their moral thinking will drive them to do the right thing.

Why are people against breeding them? Even though the Hyacinth is rare and endangered - keeping them "pure" in captivity and doing absolutely no hybrids as pets isn't going to help them in the wild in any way, shape, or form. The occassional hybrid breeding isn't going to hurt and its pure emotional-based reasoning that makes people think in such a way. It not logical reasoning. I think these military X hyacinth bred birds are absolutely gorgeous and would love to have one.

I realize this post is really old but does anyone know if Dr. Miller is still breeding Milicinths and if so does anyone know how I can contact him?
