The Blue and Gold Macaw, (Ara ararauna) is a member of the large parrot group known as macaws.
It breeds in the forest and woodlands of tropical South America from Trinidad and Venezuela south to Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. It extends into Central America, where it is restricted to areas around Panama. It is an endangered species in Trinidad, has probably been wiped out from western Ecuador, and is on the verge of being eradicated from Paraguay, but still remains fairly common in a large part of mainland South America.
Blue and Gold Macaw are popular as pets partly because of their striking appearance and ability as a talking bird; however, their large size makes accommodation problematic, and they require much more effort and knowledge from owners than more traditional pets such as dogs or cats. They are intelligent and social, so for someone who can provide for their needs, they make a good and loving companion parrot. Blue and Gold Macaw bond very closely to their owners.
They tend to be more aggressive during mating season, typically 6-8 weeks in the spring.
Even the most well cared for Blue and Gold Macaw will “scream” and make other loud noises. Loud vocalizations, especially “flock calls”, and destructive chewing are natural parts of their behavior and should be expected in captivity.
They require a varied diet, a seed only diet will lead to health problems such as vitamin deficiency. An example of a good diet would be a quality pelleted mix, in conjunction with a mix featuring seed, nuts, and dried fruits, with fresh vegetables (greens and roots) and fruits fed regularly; furthermore, it is quite common (and appreciated by the parrot) to partake with their human owners of safe foods like pasta, bread, etc.
You should try to provide a wide variety of foods, while avoiding foods with high fat content. There are some foods which are toxic to most birds and parrots. Cherry and most other Rosaceae pits and seed, avocados, chocolate, and caffeine are among the foods toxic to parrots.
