I have found this hybrid to be absolutely outstanding and I'm amazed at their companion qualities. They are very well suited to homes with children and mix well with family and extended family and friends as long as the owners continue to put the work in eg. Taking them out on the harness and "keeping their world big".
Harlequin Macaws are a 1st generation hybrid, so they don't have a true scientific name. They are a cross between a Greenwing Macaw and a Blue & Gold Macaw.
Some say crosses provide the best of both worlds. Both species used to create a Harlequin have affectionate personalities. Harlequins are very friendly birds that tend to love everyone, not just one person. They are also clowns. Greenwings are known for being "Gentle Giants" while the Blue & Gold is the clown of the Macaw family. This makes them a docile, and friendly bird with a huge personality. They are highly intelligent, and also very eager to learn and pick up training quickly.
All our baby Harlequin Macaws are harness trained so you get the optimum level of enjoyment out of them by being able to take them out to the park etc. We are also happy to teach them in house recall before they go to their new homes.
