Description

Harlequin macaw is a hybrid parrot that results from the breeding of a red-and-green macaw (Ara chloropterus) and a blue-and-gold macaw (Ara ararauna). Although this breed of macaw is typically the result of captive breeding, the geographic ranges of both A. chloropterus and A. ararauna do overlap and naturally occurring hybrids are possible.
