Exceptional abilities and beautiful colors

The largest of all the parrots

The exceptional abilities and beautiful colors of the ara make them one of the finest in this extended family. The male blue and yellow macaw is barely distinguishable from the female.

Blue and yellow macaws are found in Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia and Paraguay. They are very common in some locations and are not considered as an endangered species. However, they have suffered from a significant decline in numbers and have almost completely disappeared from certain regions due to the destruction of their habitat, hunting and the trade of blue and yellow macaws as pets. In spite of various conservation measures and its status as a protected species since 1986, the blue and yellow macaw is considered vulnerable.

These birds are generally found among the treetops, and their call acts as a warning for many other animals in the event of danger. In the wild, they quickly learn to imitate various animal sounds. The female generally lays her eggs in the hollow of an old tree.
