Blue-headed macaws can live up to 30 to 40 years. Macaws are playful and love to chew. They should always be provided with toys, especially wooden blocks that can be chewed, and branches from non-toxic trees.
The Blue-Headed Macaw is native to eastern Peru, north-western Bolivia, and far western Brazil. All macaws need plenty of energy, though a balanced diet, for good health.
The blue-headed macaw is 16 inches in length, with the large powerful beak and long pointed tail characteristic to all macaws. They have a blue head, green wings, and body, with maroon on the upper portion of the tail.
Blue-headed macaws are adaptable and should do well in housing that is appropriate for other macaws of similar size. Macaws should have adequate space to move freely between two perches.
