Swamp and forest areas of South America.
Blue and Gold Macaws or blue and yellow macaw are large birds, and can reach lengths of up to 33 inches from the beak to the end of the tail feathers.
Intelligent and sociable, the Blue and Gold Macaw also called Blue and Yellow 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.
Blue and Gold Macaws typically have a green forehead, fading into blue which covers the nape, back, tail, and wings. The chest and underside of the wings and belly are a bright golden yellow. They have large black beaks, and white patches of skin around their eyes and face. These patches are adorned with rings of tiny black feathers.
Captive Blue and Gold Macaws should be fed a varied diet consisting of as many different types of fresh foods as possible. Fresh vegetables are always needed as well as leafy greens and root vegetables. The birds should be supplemented daily with a high quality pelleted diet and some healthy seed such as flax, hemp and chia seed, taking care to avoid treats that are high in fat.
