I've saw this hybrid before and they called it a Christmas macaw.

My aunt has one of these. She was given a Shamrock and a Harlequin, both suposedly females. The Shamrock turned out to be a male and they raised 1 chick. She talked to the bird's breeder and the breeder told her the Shamrock/Harlequin cross was called a Christmas Macaw, "because they are mostly reds and greens." However, I don't know how acurate that is.

    Congrats Donna!!!I'm happy that there will be another Heidi book to look forarwd too!!! (Did you decide on a baby name?)I'm happy to say that B'girl had her final Level 5 gym meet yesterday and did very well. I think though, she was more excited that it was her last one, which means no more of the same floor music for 4 hours. She told me afterwards that she can't wait until next year and she thinks she's going to do really well. I'm so glad her excitement is back (she struggled a little last time this year with fear issues). I'm happy that I get to pull out the shorts!!! I've been wearing flip flops for awhile, but they are so much better when they are paired up with shorts!!! Oh and we got a new baby this week! We welcomed Fionna (aka Little Bit) into the family. She is a talker and loves to play with our other ratties tails. They are very good to her and have even let her push them out of their bed.

    you already had a gray? If you rllaey don't have big bird experience you should get it before you get a rllaey big bird. Starting your big bird experience with a H Macaw would be like someone handing you the keys to a Vette.

Beautiful Birds. They get very close to their owners. They are one person birds. My best friend's mother had one and no one could get near it but her! They talked and carried on. How cool!

This one looks like it was under my car doing an oil change. :)

I would call the harlequin shamrock hybrid a "Copper Fire" as it has all the colors of a piece of copper heated by a hot flame. Due to the rarity of this bird I doubt there actually is a "common" name as yet. So the breeder of course can call it what they will.

I like HARDROCK MACAW.....Here's another, a CASIO MACAW or CASSIO MACAW.

Why not call it a "Sharlequin"????

a 'quaternary' would be a good name for this hybrid.
