| The Blue & Gold
Macaw is one of the most popular of all macaws. Due to
the mild temperament and high intelligence its a great
However most people could not keep such a large
bird. The lucky ones that make the commitment for such
a bird are in for a treat. The upper side of the tail,
wings, backside and neck are rich, deep blue. Under
parts are bright golden yellow. The underside of the
tail is blue tinged with yellow. The crown is greenish
tinged with blue. A black bib collar frames the lower
part of the face. Sizes can be anywhere from 30 inches
to smaller in length.
Most Blue And Golds have a great
disposition which makes them very good choice for a
large macaw. Most Blue and Golds learn very fast.
Talking talents are questionable, however our opinion
is, many do learn to talk quite well but we would
never sell anyone any macaw for a top talking species.
You must accept them for what they are. No doubt they
have talents far beyond talking ability, you may see
many trick bird shows with the star bird being the
Blue and Gold macaw.
They are one of the most
desirable of all macaws due to all the positives. But
one must understand that owning these birds or
any bird is not cheap. One must consider the cage
requirements. Some suitable cages that could house
such large strong birds can cost upward of $500.00 or
more. For the special person that can
properly maintain this bird and enjoy such a large
addition to their family its a great choice.
