The Blue-and-yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna), also known as the Blue-and-gold Macaw, is a member of the macaw group of parrots which breeds in the swampy forests of tropical South America from Panama south to Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. It is probably now extinct on Trinidad.They can reach 76-86 cm (29.9-33.9in)long and weigh 900 to 1300 g (2-3 lbs), making them one of the biggest parrots in the world. They are vivid in appearance with blue wings and tail, black chin, golden (some might say, "butterscotch") underparts and a green cap on the head. Their beaks are jet black and very strong for crushing nuts. The Blue and yellow Macaw can live up to 60 years of age, and generally only ever form one couple for reproduction during their life. They nest at the top of tree trunks and the female generally lays two eggs. The blue-and-yellow Macaw uses its powerful beak not only for crushing the nuts it feeds on but also for climbing up and hanging from trees.Source:Wikipedia
