Blue-and-yellow macaw

The pale yet gorgeous face blushes when this bird is excited, revealing a sensitive and soft heart

These birds represent the quote, “birds of a feather flock together,” as wild blue and gold macaws are often spotted perching and flying closely. Did you know this intelligent bird featured as a star in the 1998’s film “The real macaw”? Also, they enjoy mimicking and ridiculing other species or random people – funny birds. They are also very conscious and tend to eat a balanced diet (rich in proteins and fats). Like other parrots, they are prone to nutritional disorders; however, a healthy macaw could live up to 70 years. These otherwise social birds don’t like going out in the evening and would take off with the slightest hint of danger.
