They are known to have very large territories. They prefer to nest in holes
high up in trees and lay one or two eggs. They feed on specific fruits such as
polewood, roaming large areas searching for clumps of their favorite foods.
As recent as 1989, the reported Belizean population of Blue and Gold Macaws
was a total of 42 birds. But in 1996, a new population of over 100 birds was
"discovered" south of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Unfortunately,
over most of its range, the Blue and gold Macaw is endangered, a victim of
human greed - many have been taken as a commodity in the pet trade.
