B&G or Greenwing?

Iím getting my first macaw and cannot decided between greenwing or blue and gold, I would love some input.

I think looks-wise blue and gold wings for me, but the red on a greenwing is just stunning

Personality-wise, blue and golds tends to be more cuddly and playful, but also more grumpy and unpredictable, is that true?

People have described greenwings as being more sweet, gentle giantsĒand independent.

I have met a few greenwings, some are really friendly, others are kinda scary and mean, I wouldnít trust them near my face

Iím having a really hard time choosing, what do you guys think?

I would prefer one which loves attention and cuddles but isnít too stand off ish.

I know this all varies from bird to bird, but as a general rule of thumb. : )

Sounds like a biased opinion to me. <GRIN!!>

We have a B&G, which is also an awesome companion!

A lot is determined by the personality of the individual bird but also the interaction between the guardian and the bird. IMHO!!

Re: B&G or Greenwing?

Why don't you go visit available birds of both species and hold out until something about one of them reaches out and grabs your heart?

Re: B&G or Greenwing?

haha - I was in the same predicament as you! http://www.parrotforums.com/macaws/1...ing-macaw.html

I've decided to arrange a visit to the breeder's aviaries early next year to meet the fledglings and make a decision from there I hope to get both in future, but I want to make sure that if I decide to start with a B&G, to get a larger one so it won't be intimidated by the GW

Re: B&G or Greenwing?

I put neither, Although I love both the blue and gold and greenwing I prefer the blue throated macaw

Random Trivia - Experts originally(1) thought the blue-throat was a juvenile of the Blue and Gold macaw or vice versa

(1 - Not sure how long ago though)
