Lutino Macaw Born In Australia!

What is yellow and white with red eyes that should be blue and gold with dark eyes? Answer: The very first red eyed Lutino Macaw to be born in Australia!

This is earth breaking news for the bird world! Normally the Blue and Gold Macaw is coloured with Blue, Gold and Green with Black around the face and neck as in the photo shown. There was a clutch of Lutino Macaws born in Texas USA in 2002 but little has been heard of any others since then and definitely none here in Australia. This is a big first for aviculture in Australia.

Lutino Macaw and Normal Macaw

The big news was announced in the Parrot Society of Australia’s magazine with an important comment by President Stewart Williamson about the importance of record keeping being made clear with the genetic paper trail so carefully kept for this new rare baby Lutino Macaw. The owner is able to trace the birds back which will make having them legal and also assist in future breeding programs. If you would like to read about record keeping for exotic parrots you will find a pamphlet on this topic in our bird section. Click here to read “Keeping it Legal” issued by the Department of the Environment and Water Resources.

At this stage the owner is being kept secret as would be expected. The owner could be compared to a lotto winner with his amazing first ever Lutino Macaw in Australia being worth… well we can only imagine, but apparently it may be for sale!
