Blue Throated Macaw for sale
Blue Throated Macaw for sale.The Blue Throated Macaw parrot is one of the most spectacular of the large Macaws. It displays an elegant form and is more graceful in its movements than its counterparts. In color it is similar to the slightly larger Blue and Gold Macaw, with a beautiful teal blue color along its upper parts and a golden color underneath. But it is distinguished by a large blue band across the throat that extends up to its ear coverts, and thus the name ‘Blue-throated’. It is also known as the Canide Macaw and the Wagler’s Macaw.

As wild birds, they are found to be shy and reclusive, but as hand-fed birds they are very outgoing and talkative. They love chewing and performing acrobatic antics. Those activities, along with exploring their surroundings with their tongue and beak, are some of their favorite pastimes.

In captivity, these birds are mellow, friendly, and inquisitive. Blue throated macaws enjoy interaction with people as well as other birds. They rarely ever bite, though they do explore their surroundings with their tongue and beak. They are happy to entertain themselves as well; playing in their cage, talking to themselves, and chewing on toys.
They can be a good family type bird. They are a gentle bird that will get along with more than one person, although they will probably have a preference in the family.

To have a well-rounded bird that enjoys more than one person, make sure it is well socialized with lots of folks.
