One of the larger Macaws, with an adult length up to 34” and a wing span of up to 45”. They can weigh over 2 pounds. They usually have a yellowish- to orangish- red on the chest and some on the back. The top of the head and wings are blue-green.
The Catalina Macaw is a first generation hybrid macaw. It is a cross between a Blue and Gold Macaw (ara ararauna), and a Scarlet Macaw (ara macao). Hybrid macaws are mostly bred in captivity and are rarely found in the wild.
Can become very tame and playful birds. Require a lot of attention or can become destructive. Parrots must be provided with wood and other chewable material to keep beaks in good condition, and to maintain good mental health.
Catalina macaws generally weigh 2–3 pounds and can reach up to 35 inches (86–89 cm) in length from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers. Their wingspan reaches 40-45 inches (101–114 cm). The average Catalina lives up to 60 years in captivity.
