Beautiful, captivating, intelligent, and majestic, blue and gold macaws have held a place as one of the most popular large parrots for years. These brightly colored beauties have so much more to offer than just a pretty face—they are full of personality as well! They are indeed one of the more recognizable birds in the world and a popular pet for people who can handle a large parrot that demands attention.
Intelligent and sociable, the blue and gold macaw usually does well as a pet when the owners are dedicated, responsible, and well informed. They are large birds, and as such are capable of extremely loud vocalizations. Because of this, they may not be the best choice for those who live in apartments and condominiums, or who have small children.
When allowed to socialize with a variety of people, blue and golds do very well adapting to various situations. They’re a popular headliner at bird shows, and many owners take them out and about town with the help of bird leashes and car seats. Blue and golds can be just as welcoming to other birds as they are to humans.
Around the house, these macaws can be as friendly as a dog. They enjoy being near their owners and will often wander around looking for someone who can give them attention. Their sweet personality is sure to make you drop whatever you’re doing for a little play time. They can also be quite content on their perch, watching the activity around them.
Blue and gold macaws are large birds and can reach lengths of up to 33 inches from the beak to the end of the tailfeathers. Their wingspan can reach an astounding 40 inches or more, and they typically weigh over 2 pounds at maturity.
Like most large parrots, adopting a blue and gold is a commitment for a lifetime because they can live 60 or more years. Though most only live to around 30 years old, there have been stories of blue and golds living to 100.
