One of the most stunning aviary and companion parrot subjects that we have in Australian Aviculture, the blue and gold macaw is something incredibly special for any discerning Aviculturist.
The wild-type bird has a beautiful palette if colours, but there are a variety of colour mutations evident across the world. These include the lutino, blue and white, opaline, and a few others. All are gorgeous in their own right, but extremely rare.
The population is certainly increasing, which brings the focus back to securing birds of the highest quality from reputable Aviculturists. Those that provide plenty of space, enrichment, and a quality diet; and also those who are happy to impart information to new macaw-keepers.
