Catalina Macaws are only produced in captivity (Hybrid), by crossing a Blue & Gold with a Scarlet Macaw. Therefore, they originate in the homes of bird breeders around the world.
It's been said that owners of hybrid macaws get the "best of both worlds." Scarlet Macaws are known to be curious, feisty, and extremely active, while Blue and Gold Macaws have a reputation for being more laid-back. Catalina owners describe their birds as being a perfect mix between the two.
Catalina Macaws can have a wide variation in their colors and patterns. Most are primarily red or deep orange on their chests and bellies, with green and blue on their backs. Many of them have gold feathers edging their wings and in their tails. Being that hybrids are bred primarily for color traits, a large range of colors and combinations are available.
The Catalina Macaw combines the traits of the most popular Macaws into one spectacularly beautiful package.
