My blue and gold macaw, muggy, was perhaps one of the most adorable, yet gorgeous birds I have ever had! His vibrant colours, and full of life personality added joy to my life! He was a fairly decent size, which allowed his to showcase his colours even more! He was playful, mischievous and quite intelligent! He spoke a few words really well too!
The only thing with him is that it does take time and effort to maintain a large bird like him. If you have children around the house, I would not recommend a macaw as a first bird to keep, as their large beaks are to be treated with caution!
Overall, a highly playful and intelligent bird, but probably not for the first time bird owner!
