Scarlequin Macaw = Scarlet X Harlequin (Also called a Tropicana)
With the Harlequin Macaw (having a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Green-winged Macaw for parents) you have a macaw that is a real beauty and good natured. The Blue and Gold macaw is renowned not only for its beauty and sweet nature, but also its speaking ability. While the other parent, the strikingly handsome 'gentle giant' Green-winged Macaw, lends its beauty and a very gentle, amiable nature. The wonderful attributes of the Harlequin make it a great parent for the Tropicana Macaw.
Crossing the vibrant Harlequin Macaw with the fiery Scarlet Macaw brings even more strong reds into the mix. Because of its beauty, the Scarlet Macaw is one of the most highly favored macaws. This sweet though independent tempered bird has been the best known South American parrot for over 100 years. The Tropicana Macaws inherit all the beautiful coloring of their parentage, as well as a composite of their personalities.
The behavior and temperament of hybrid macaws are more unpredictable and uncertain than the coloration. The Tropicana Macaws are hybrid parrots that are very attractive with the intelligence and temperaments of their parents. The Tropicana can learn to talk and have an amiable nature, though the Scarlet influence may also introduce a bit of an indomitable spirit. As with all macaws, they will require good socialization and consistent training to make good pets.
