I have an interesting and unusual situation i am trying to make sense of. Any advice or questions are welcomed. About two months ago i adopted a 19 yo male blue and gold macaw named Skipper. He is usually of mellow temperment, but a couple weeks ago A neighbor girl who is 13 came to visit and very much wanted him up on her arm but is/was afraid of him. She finally decided to pick him up using a stick. She sat down and he climbed onto her knee/thigh. She was having her cycle at the time, and he immediately stuck his beak into her private area. She was wearing blue jeans at the time. She immediately threw her hands up and said GET HIM OFF.ME....GET HIM OFF ! I was quickly able to remove him and the incident was mostly ended right there. Upon her leaving for home, however, he screamed and screamed as if he wanted her to return. To this day when she visits he tries EVERY trick in the book to get her attention, and screams, and he tries get as close to her as he can. (Today he kindve had her cornered so he is obviously getting better)! Yet he shows no signs of wanting to hurt her except for a little bit of foot pecking. There seems to be no doubt he is attracted to her. Has anyone had any similar experiences? Will this most likely be the way he always responds every time she visits? I seriously doubt she will be ok with giving him another try and picking him up. Should i not allow them to be together to save him the grief her visits cause? I will add that i am certain she has never done anything even close to abusive to him because I never allow unattended visits. All i can think to do is not allow her to visit him, but thats kindve harsh on a young girl and comes across too much like punishment. Any suggestions?
