The three subspecies of Military Macaw breed at different times. However this probably has more to do with the geographical region they are residing in than anything else. Breeding in the militaris species occurs from January to March. The mexicana species breeds from April to July and the boliviana species breeds in November and December.

Military Macaws are monogamous and remain with their mates for life. As they fly around in large flocks, the mates/pairs will fly together. They will also be found flying in pairs in their feeding and roosting/nesting areas. Females will lay one to two eggs which only she will incubate for a period of approximately 26 days. Military Macaws will reach sexual maturity in two to four years.

Military Macaws live in large flocks and can live around 50 – 60 years in the wild.
