These are great companion macaws. They are generally friendly and they get attached to their owners. They are big and beautiful.
These birds are extremely intelligent and need lots of stimulation. They have a very long lifespan. They are a popular macaw species which is no surprise - look at how beautiful they are.
Care is pretty straightforward if you are familiar with macaw care. They love toys and need a lot of space.
This is definitely not a beginner bird, but if you have previous bird experience and are ready to take on a macaw, a Blue and Gold would be a great candidate.
