and Gold Macaws
are my favorite. I am attracted to the immense size
and bright pumage. Found in eastern Panama, western
Colombia, western Ecuador and most of the Amazon Basin,
the blue and gold macaw is one of the most popular pet
birds. The blue on the back and wings can range from
a blue-green to a deep royal blue, and the chest color
can be yellow to a deep gold. The front of his crown
is emerald green that becomes blue covering the rest
of the head.
Blue and gold macaws make
wonderful family pets especially when they are well
trained. They have to be socialized as a young bird
to ensure a friendly personality. They are very intelligent
and are good talkers. They balk initially but adjust
very quickly. What irks me is its loud voice. It can
be brought down with training. Blue and gold
macaws feed on seeds and nuts, fruit and vegetables
and extra protein in the form of cooked chicken or cheese.
