Tropicana macaw

The scientific name is the tropicana macaw is a second generation is a cross between a harelequin macaw and scarlet macaw.

The distribution is a captive hybrid macaw. Rare to find.

The description is are very attracted colors. Both parents contribute the offspring but the father has the dominant final appearance. The tropicana macaw is second generation one being the harelquin macaw Blue and gold macaw and green winged macaw and the other the scarlet. They come in rainbow colors. Sometimes all the siblings will have different colors. They are different shades of red on head an body and etchings of green and blue. Yellow, pinks, purples can come even through the play of wings and tail. They are tempered than a scarlet macaw or a catalina macaw, but not as green winged macaw. Size is smaller than the green winged macaw. 

The size and weight is they can weigh over 2 pounds and the length are 90 cm.

The care and breeding is they need a roomy cage and need to be let out for extended periods of time to be on a pen to prevent boredness and also eat all kinds of nutrition things like seeds, fruits, nuts, and all vegetables.

Social behavior is the Tropicana Macaw typically takes on a composite of traits from its parentage, having a sweet friendly nature, as well as being highly intelligent and curious. They can be a very good natured pet bird, though the Scarlet influence may also introduce a bit of an indomitable spirit. They are a typical macaw. Can be cranky at times and may even be a one person bird or only like men or women unless well socialized. To have a well rounded bird that enjoys more that one person, make sure it is well socialized with lots of folks.

The breeding and reproduction is they don't generally bred but more hybrids are breeding.

There are no sexual differences.

The potential problem is they can be noisy at times.

The availability is they available and are expensive.
