This is supposedly a photo of a wild macaw. A breeder has had these born of the normal blue and gold macaws, recessive genes and all that, and I assume that this color can also occur in the wild. After that, you're on your own.

Thanks Sunpuppy12 for writing in.
Zsuzsi, this is not the site I visited for info, it was this one, https://www.goldenmacaw.net/index.html, but the information is the same. Thanks for looking and adding to our knowledge.

Mischa, I found this on FB. It sounds quite similar to your summary. It may even be from the same source. Zsuzsi P.S. Gorgeous bird!

Parrot in Fsd ( Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan)

Golden jewels.. ( lutino macaw )
Mutations of the blue and yellow macaw..
( sex-linked recessive )
by my friend Torch lutino macaw..
Lutino is a term used to describe birds that exhibit a yellow pigmentation known as xanthochromism. Birds exhibiting genetic xanthochromism, especially deliberately bred mutations of several species of parrot in aviculture, are termed "lutinos". Lutino is of the Blue & Gold Macaw species. These are extremely rare, particularly in Australia. Instead of having a black beak, claws and facial features, and the usual vibrant blue and gold feathers of a standard Blue & Gold Macaw, our Lutino has bright yellow-orange feathers and white features - including a white beak, tongue, legs and claws. It's eyes are a pinkish grey instead of black.
