Colors and Markings
Blue and gold macaws get their common name from their two most prominent feather colors. They typically have a green forehead, fading into a teal blue which covers the nape, back, tail, and wings. The chest and underside of the wings and belly are a bright golden yellow.
These birds have large black beaks and a black patch of feathers just underneath it. White patches of skin adorned with rings of tiny black feathers surround their eyes and cover much of the face.
The males and females are barely distinguishable because this is a monomorphic species. It’s believed that the male has a flatter head and the female has a narrower beak, but the only way to prove the sex of this macaw is through surgical or DNA sexing.
