The Catalina macaw, also known by its scientific name (Ara ararauna X Ara macao), is a stunning hybrid bird that takes after its parents, the scarlet macaw and the blue and gold macaw. Each generation boasts varying coloration, making them a colorful sight to behold.
Known for their energetic and charming personalities, Catalina macaws make great pets for those who have plenty of time, experience, and patience to care for them. These birds are noisy and demanding, so be prepared for their lively presence.
To house a Catalina macaw, invest in a well-built cage made of powder-coated metal that measures 40 x 30 x 69 inches with a bar spacing of 1 ½ inches. Adding manzanita perches and chewable toys will help satisfy their need to chew.
It’s also beneficial to have a separate playpen for your bird to enjoy away from its cage for enrichment.
The Catalina macaw has a fantastic blend of personality traits from both the scarlet macaw and the blue and gold macaw. This highly intelligent bird is eager to learn and forms bonds quickly with its owner. Due to their inquisitive and imitative nature, these macaws learn words quickly.
However, they can become depressed and aggressive if they don’t receive enough attention and care. Be sure to spend time with your bird daily and recognize when they’re feeling down as it may lead to biting and aggression.
When it comes to feeding, a commercially available macaw pellet mix, brown rice, vegetables, nuts, and seeds are all good for your pet. Avoid feeding them chocolate, avocado, and raw meat. Fresh water is essential for their well-being.
To keep your pet active, let them out of the cage for two to four hours of playtime daily. This also helps them recognize all your household members, so they don’t form a bond with just one person. Proper cleaning and maintenance of their cage and toys are also necessary for a hygienic environment.
