Camelot Macaws
Awesomely Pretty, Orange & Yellow Camelot Macaw hen, Katherine

A Camelot Macaw is a second generation hybrid cross between a Scarlet & a Catalina Macaw.
A Catalina macaw is a first generation hybrid of a Scarlet and a Blue & Gold Macaw. The Camelot Macaw is a popular multiple generation hybrid macaw that has been successfully bred for many years. They are the most common second generation hybrid macaw that is seen today. Camelot Macaws are not considered rare, unless they are yellow dominant. Novices often misleadingly refer to orange & green Camelot Macaws as "yellow," but they are not, even though that color combination can be quite striking. Camelot macaws come in a vast array of colors. It is incorrect to assume that they are all primarily yellow. Yellow dominant Camelot macaws are the exception, not the rule.

Traditionally, the combination believed to create the yellow dominant Camelot Macaw is a Scarlet Macaw with a wide yellow band bred to a hybrid Catalina Macaw with a high percentage of yellow in it's markings. There is no guarantee that any of the offspring will be yellow at all, although the odds in favor of achieving yellow dominancy, to some degree, are significantly increased .

Camelot Macaws are often red dominant with green markings on their upper wings, and some even look like Catalina Macaws with extra color. Most Camelot Macaws also have a green nape. Only about 1 in 5 are actually born orange or yellow dominant with considerable variation in shade & color.
