The Ruby Macaw is a beautifully colored bird that is a hybrid cross between a scarlet macaw and a green-winged macaw. The ruby macaw is a first-generation hybrid macaw — its parents are two species of naturally occurring macaws. Father's have the dominant gene, so this will generally influence the offspring's coloration and overall appearance.
Ruby macaws are extremely striking in coloring, with a red head and neck and bright yellow and orange feathers scattered across the center of its back and wings. They are loveable, outgoing, vocal birds that can learn a vocabulary of 15 or more words or phrases.They have more red than hybrid Catalina Macaws.
They can average 40 inches long from beak to tail with a wingspan of 40 inches or more.
