Blue and yellow macaw

Ara ararauna


The blue and yellow macaw, also called a blue and gold macaw, is a large parrot with bluish-teal top features and yellow-gold coloring underneath. It has a mostly white face with black markings and a green crown.


Its native habitat is tropical South America.


This is a striking bird that eats mostly nuts, berries, and fruits, although from the size of its beak, it might be known to tackle a finger if one got too close! This specimen was seen at Ardastra Gardens, Zoo, and Conservation Centre, in Nassau, Bahamas.
