    Well, a Flame Macaw is a second generation macaw (F2). If you cross that with a Blue and Gold, then you will have a 3rd generation macaw (F3). These multigenerational birds could be designated something like this: Flame Macaw (Green-winged Macaw x Catalina Macaw (Scarlet Macaw crossed x Blue and Gold Macaw)) x Blue and Gold Macaw.



    You can learn more about them in the sections on their breeding, and characteristics here, Hybrid macaws,.

Just a quick note to say that not all of them look like the one pictured. My baby flame (Ohana Pride) has an orange head and no green on the neck at this point. Her sister Pele looks like the one pictured. The coloring is different between the two

    This is true, a close friend of mine has one and he fades from orange to green-blue. I've completely fallen in love with this hybrid, though.

    Where did you find a breeder that has them? My friend who has hers happened to hit the jackpot at a shelter and adopted him, but I'm afraid that it might have been a once in a lifetime strike. I'm not looking to get one right away - I have yet to settle down in one place - but once I do I'd absolutely love to have my on feathered flame friend.

    Sorry, you can get them at parrotuniversity.com. Steve will ship the babies. I didn't want a large macaw because I have 8 caique and 3 yellow collars but I told my husband that if this certain pair should breed he could have one. Took them 5 years but we finally have one and I would not trade her for the world.

    I don't know of a specific name for that cross. The Flame is a second generation hybrid and gorgeous. So although I can't find a specific name, I know they will be beautiful.

I finally have a name for my hybrid. I tell everyone I have a half Green Wing Half Catalina Macaw. Now I can just say Flame. Thanks for the informative web site!

I think this is one of the prettiest hybrids-it looks like a lacewing or a pearl wing with the varigated red in the colours. Keep posting new pics!
