Blue and gold Macaw

Origin and History
In the wild, blue and gold macaws enjoy a wide range from Panama in Central America, extending into almost every country of northern South America. They have also been introduced in Puerto Rico.

Blue and golds typically live in the forests near rivers and swamps, though they can be found in a grassy savannah if it has tall trees. Most often traveling in pairs, macaws will gather in large flocks at certain times of the year or will meet up during the morning and evening hours to forage for food.

Wild blue and golds are an endangered species. Much of their population decline in the wild has been due to habitat destruction, hunting, and trapping. Sadly, before captive breeding programs, these young birds were quite often taken directly from the nest and sold for the pet trade. Many defensive parents died protecting their babies, and many young parrots did not survive.

Since 1935, the blue and golds have been bred successfully in the U.S. Breeders are readily available, and their prevalence makes them one of the more affordable large parrots.

Temperament

Their sociability and even, sweet disposition makes blue and gold macaws a great pet. Their intelligence, willingness to learn, and talking ability are a plus.

When allowed to socialize with a variety of people, blue and golds do very well adapting to different people and other birds. The blue and gold is a fantastic bird for tricks. They’re a popular headliner at bird shows, and many owners may even take them out around town with the help of bird leashes and car seats.

Around the house, these macaws may act like friendly dogs. They enjoy being near their owners and seek out attention. They are also content on their perch, watching the activity around them.

Speech and Vocalizations

Blue and gold macaws are capable of ear-shattering calls, which are usually not appreciated by close neighbors. They are not the best choice for those who live in apartments and condominiums or if you have small children who are startled by noise.

This bird is a great talker; it can learn quickly and aims to please. Training is relatively simple as long as you are consistent. They can learn a vocabulary of around 20 words and phrases. Given the clarity of their voice, many people consider them one of the best talking parrots.

How to Teach Your Bird to Talk

Blue and Gold Macaw Colors and Markings
Blue and gold macaws get their common name from their two most prominent feather colors. They typically have a green forehead, fading into a teal blue that covers the nape, back, tail, and wings. The chest and underside of the wings and belly are a bright golden yellow.

These birds have large black beaks and a black patch of feathers just underneath its beak. White patches of skin adorned with rings of tiny black feathers surround their eyes and cover much of the face.

Blue and gold macaws are monotypic, meaning there is only one bird that falls into the species. However, bird experts suggest that there are two variations or subspecies. These are the Bolivian blue and gold macaw, a larger bird with more of an actual blue coloring than the typical turquoise, and the blue-throated macaw, which has a teal blue throat instead of a black throat.

This bird is a monomorphic species, meaning males and females are barely distinguishable from each other. Many believed that the male has a flatter head, and the female has a narrower beak; the only way to prove the sex of this macaw is through surgical or genetic sexing.

    hey madi.

    I’m sorry for so many posts… I just wanna make sure I’m Doing right by these poor babies.
    This is the cage they came in. Their new cage will be here on Friday. What’s the best way to transition them? Who knows how long they’ve been in this cage so I don’t wanna stress them out at the same time getting them into a bigger cage ASAP. Should I leave the new cage beside them and slowly add their stuff into it and then them? They don’t have anything except their perches and two toys they came with. Or just move them and everything all at once? Thanks!

    Hi, all! Currently weaning our AAA…but he is not interested in anything other than his hand feeding formula. Any tips or resources? I have researched extensively and know what diet needs to be: but just as a human baby, starting right is what leads to future healthiness…and I can’t find a tried and true way to introduce new foods to him. Thanks in advance—y’all are great!

    Add a little chopped/mashed veg in to the normal formula and over time increase the size of the chopped pieces. Try and keep a good relationship with the formula feeding method as it will enable you to give medicines when needed i always spoon feed porridge with puree fruit twice a week so i know they will not be freaked out when i need to medicate them

    I finally got Obi here and settled into his new home last night. He’s been a bit neglected from attention since his Dad (My Father-in-law) passed back in Jan from Covid. 32 year old Double Yellow Amazon.
    All that left to do is give him time and attention he needs. I have very little experience with parrots, but I’m been watching and reading all of y’all’s posts for 3+ months. As well as doing my research.

    He looks great I spent hours sitting next the cage of mine just talking very quietly not touching him and let him come to you when he moves in your direction give him a treat I used pine nuts eventually he will sit and wait next to the bars where you sit and greet you. Don’t rush and don’t be put off if nothing happens for a while it

    thanks madi breeders

    Ohhh he’s so beautiful 🤩
    I would probably lower that perch a bit, so he can stand fully upright if he wants to. They stretch too and he wont have space to extend his wings.
    Has he started singing for you yet?? Mine loves to *sing* lol

    thanks madi breeders
