Green Wings are standouts in the world of macaws. In my experience they have a more mellow disposition compared with Blue & Gold. Macaws tend to use the beak for bluffing, and thankfully are less likely to bite in extreme anger. All you ever wanted to know about those beaks!

Thank you so much for the useful link! I am actually inclining myself more towards the blue and gold macaw (Love the green wing, but they are a tad too expensive). I also found a good breeder that sells them (B&G) for $1800, which is so much better than the $3250 of the green wing.
Initial cost is important consideration, considering the expense of quality cage, perches, toys, etc! Quite a price disparity between the two species!!
