The cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus), also known as the weiro bird, or quarrion, is a small parrot that is a member of its branch of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia. They are prized as pets and companion parrots all over the world and are relatively easy to raise. The caged cockatoo ranks second after budgerigar.

The blue-gold macaw (Ara ararauna), also known as the blue-yellow macaw, is a large South American parrot with a predominantly blue top and a light orange underside with gradient shades of green at the top. It is a member of a large group of neotropical parrots known as the macaw. Inhabits forests (especially varzea, but also open areas of terra firme or unflooded forest), woodland and savannah in tropical South America. They are popular in the poultry industry because of their vibrant color, speaking ability, market availability and closebonding to humans.


These birds can reach lengths of 76–86 cm (30–34 inches) and weigh 0.900–1.5 kg (2–3 lb), making them one of the most prominent members of their family. They look bright with bright blue feathers on the upper body, except for the head, which is lime colored. However, the underside is a rich, deep yellow/light orange color. Their beak is black, as are the feathers under the chin. Its feet are gray, except for black talons. The bird has white skin and almost no feathers on its face, while several black ones, spaced apart from each other, form a striped pattern around the eyes. Irises are pale, light yellow.

Blue-gold macaws can live 30 to 35 years in the wild and reach sexual maturity between 3 and 6 years of age.

Slight variations in plumage are observed throughout the range. Some birds have a more orange or “butterscotch” underside colour, especially on the breast. It is often seen in birds from Trinidad and other Caribbean countries. The blue-gold macaw uses its powerful beak to break walnut shells and climb and hang from trees .

This species is found in Venezuela, Peru, Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador and Paraguay. The area extends slightly to Central America, where it is limited to Panama. Although nearly wiped out in Trinidad due to human activity in the 1970s, a recent reintroduction program has been successful. Between 1999 and 2003, wild blue-gold macaws were relocated from Guyana to Trinidad to restore species to the protected area around the Nariva Swamp. A small breeding population of introduced birds has been found in Puerto Rico, and another has inhabited Miami-Dade County, Florida, since the mid-1980s.
