Blue and yellow Macaw: the price of this bird, health & behavior

The Blue Macaw is a protected species. Just like its natural habitat, this bird is threatened with extinction. It comes from the Amazon and belongs to the family of Psittacidae. This bird stands out for its plumage of rare beauty as well as its supposed ability to imitate the language of humans.

This bird evolves mainly in particularly humid forest areas. It is localized in South America and groups of individuals are distributed in Brazil, Guyana, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, and Ecuador.

The yellow and blue Macaw parrot measures between 85-90 cm and weighs 1-1.3 kg. It has a dark gray beak that is both thick and hooked. Its wings are wide and once they are spread, the animal has a wingspan that can be between 105 and 115 cm. The Blue Macaw also has a long tail as well as long, sharp claws.

This species is characterized by the specific colors of its plumage. These are particularly very bright and it is yellow and blue that are the most dominant.

The top of the body of this bird is a shiny turquoise while the lower parts are a golden yellow. Its head is marked by a blue-green mane, its cheeks are white, and have black streaks just below each eye. The bird also wears a black collar. Its eyes and legs are yellow and its tail has a bluish tint that pulls on purple. Before maturity, the irises of blue Macaws are brown.

Blue Macaw males are more imposing compared to females. Their plumage also has darker colors.

Behavior & Character

In the wild, the Blue Macaw is very sedentary. It usually leaves its territory only in the event that food is lacking. It is also a gregarious species. He likes to live in groups, often composed of about twenty individuals. It is also a monogamous bird that most often lives in pairs. The blue and yellow parrot stays with the same partner throughout its life. The pairs of blue Macaw are also very fusional.

This large blue parrot is a diurnal and arboreal bird. It evolves in the trees, but it also happens to go down to the ground to nibble on the nuts and fruits that fall there.

The bird is known to be very expressive and noisy. Its cries are guttural and come in a very wide range of songs and noises. On the other hand, this species is relatively sociable. The bird is also described as being particularly endearing and playful.

In an environment where he feels persecuted, the blue Macaw will be more reserved. On the other hand, when it is in a more secure environment, it is less fierce. Individuals who are used to human contact may even be quite familiar.

It is mainly at dawn and in the evening that the blue and yellow parrot makes its flights to feed. Its wing beats are very slow and it only performs direct flights.


The blue Macaw enjoys a long service life. If in the wild an individual can live between 30 to 40 years, in captivity, this longevity is estimated at about sixty years. This species reaches sexual maturity around 8 or 10 years of age. The bird has on average one clutch per year at the end of which it can have between 1-4 eggs. In Blue Macaw, only females incubate eggs, and the duration of brooding varies from 24 to 28 days.

Nestlings usually leave their parents’ nest as early as their 3rd month of life. They remain nestled and feed on what their parents bring them and become fully independent only from 7 or 8 months of age.

The blue and yellow parrot is a relatively hardy bird. Despite everything, he is not insensitive to various diseases and he needs to have a good follow-up. This species can suffer from chlamydia or conjunctivitis. She can also develop follicular cysts, be plagued by capillary worms, etc.

For its well-being, this bird needs to evolve in a large cage. An aviary placed outdoors is even very popular. It is essential to choose its location of it well in order to protect the bird from different weather conditions.

Since it is a particularly active bird, it is necessary to provide it with solid perches in its cage. He will also need to have trunks at his disposal as well as adapted accessories (a shelter, a feeder, and a drinker).

This bird is a herbivore that feeds mainly on seeds, flowers, nuts, and fruits. It sometimes ingests clay, particularly rich in mineral salts, to help it better digest any toxins that may be present in some exotic fruits for parrots.
