Dear Parrots magazine,

Macaw mutation mystery continues

I saw the recent article and pictures about the Blue & Gold Macaw mutations in the April 2013 (issue 183) which reminded me of a painting I did some years ago.

Apart from “Mosaica,” which I reproduced from a photo of the same Brazilian bird featured in the magazine, the other mutations in my painting were purely conjecture and based on what I believed these birds would look like if they should ever be produced.

“Mosaica” does not look like a straightforward pied mutation.
