Blue Throated Macaws are frequently mistaken for Blue and Gold Macaws, and for good reason. At first glance, there is no obvious difference between the two. However, if you are lucky enough to see them side by side, the difference becomes obvious. Blue Throated Macaws maintain that same beautiful blue and yellow contrast as the Blue and Gold. Everything on the upper half of the bird – their heads, back, wings, and top of the tail – is blue. Everything on the under side – their chest and belly, under their wings, and under their tail – is yellow. However, there is a slightly different hue to the blue of a Blue Throated Macaw when compared to a Blue and Gold Macaw. Also, the Blue and Gold Macaw has a black throat, while the Blue Throated Macaw, obviously, has a blue throat. Blue Throated Macaws are also somewhat smaller than Blue and Gold Macaws.
