I have a Blue and Gold Macaw named Sun Belly, a Capri Macaw named Kuno, and a Shamrock Macaw named Trouble. Trouble really lives up to his name, as he is an amazingly outgoing and curious bird and when he wants something, he'll go very far lengths to get it. His favorite food would have to be corn-on-the-cob, followed close behind by chicken, apples, and veggie pizza. I got Trouble from a well known, certified breeder. He is a great bird and a great pal.
Stop making hybrids now, original species are much more pretty. Several macaws species are endangered, others are contaminating by irresponsibility of breeders.

"I disagree with you on this, if people want the hybrids, they will leave the wild parrots alone".
Kind of akin to saying couples of mixed race shouldn't reproduce...
I moved in with my cousin and she had a shamrock named buhbuh. i had a pair of senegals, a pair of sun conures, a sulfur crested cockatoo, and buhbuh inspired me to get my own shamrock. I named him gump who was a little more wild. since then I have moved out and sold/traded all of those birds except for buhbuh he is my best friend and I wouldn't trade/sell him for the world
I have kept birds all my life, but always they have been abused. I am fourteen years old; admittedly not very old, but I know alot about birds for my age. Recently when going to a doctor in Orlando I stopped in a bird store and they had so many birds it was overwhelming! Almost all macaws, of those nearly all scarlets. Then I saw this beautiful bird. She wasn't talking at all, but she was so sweet! I thought she was a millitary macaw, but she was a little too brightly colored. So I did some research, and found out she was a shamrock macaw. This page was very useful!
All I can hope is that I save enough money to buy her before they sell her. I felt a real connection with that bird, never met a sweeter bird. The only thing she said the entire time I was there was "I love you'. AWW.
Hope I can save up, Again, very helpful!
Thanks so much for the information on Shamrock Macaws. When we got our "Juan", we were told he/she was a Harlequin. It's obvious by looking at pictures of many Shamrocks, Juan is a not a Harlequin but a Shamrock. He/she is featured on the website Pet of the Day for July 26, 2004
I really enjoy your site, a friend sent it to me when I was tring to find the breed name for my Macaw. She has Catalina on her papers but your baby looks just like her!
Your bird is beautiful! I love the birds name. Your macaw is the bird that actually brings out the colors
