The Beautiful Catalina Macaw (the half breed)

Post by ziggy on Wed Mar 12, 2008 9:28 pm

This is a beautiful bird that is really a different looking bird. It is a cross breed of a Blue and Gold and a Scarlett. First generation babies are really beautiful. The second generation birds have been known to have a really different coloring totally. This is a large bird and has a great and playful attitude.

By far, the most popular and sought after hybrid macaw in the world,
the Catalina Macaw combines the best of both parents, with the friendliness of the Blue & Gold Macaw, the intelligence of the Scarlet Macaw, and the beauty of both. The first generation Catalina coloration is dominated by the Blue & Gold half of the mix, but with brilliant orange contour feathers where previously there were yellow, and variations of greens, blues & hints of yellow on the upper coverts & center tail feathers. Second and multiple generation coloration is more difficult to predict, as the offspring do not necessarily replicate the coloring of the first generation parents.
