You can not use functions (like M1 and M2) as variables (as you did in plot_vector_field). They are not interchangeable. Instead you can do

    M1,M2 = var('M1,M2')

de1 = a1 * M2 - b1 * M1 + g1
de2 = a2 * M1 - b2 * M2 + g2

plot_vector_field((de1,de2),(M1,-3,3),(M2,-3,3)).show()


(without the .show() I did not get any picture)
