He/she is a beautiful macaw! Is he/she new?
Thanks.

She's one of the birds that survived the birdie apocalypse in Coombs BC. Someone who knew her original owner said she was hatched sometime in the summer of 2005 and has a sister. So far she's let me know she can say her name, waves hello and likes to say bahbabie! a lot. I thought I was hearing things when she meow'ed the other night. I've had a huge crush on her since the first time we met when I was told she doesn't like women. I didn't want to believe it. In the past year she's warmed up to a few macaw savy women, and I hope she will with me (who is so not macaw savy! Yet). Right now she waivers between being pretty chill to running circles around her cage when something startles her. I've been spoiling her rotten with walnuts and arrowroot cookies (they used them at the shelter for treats) when I come into the room and spending time just hanging out with her without making her engage me. She's really scared, and I think she's missing her flock.

Both shelter birds who picked us. Max is my momma's boy an Titan is my daughter's, Victoria, riddick07 here in the forum.

Max is 29 this year, home about 4 years, Titan is around 17 I think and has been home about a month (but bonded to my daughter for many many months).

Long time, no post! Was just browsing and realized Giacomo never checked in here. Hahn's Macaw, Giacomo, reporting in! He will be 19 years old in a few months.

My male and female red-fronted macaws. That's as close as I'll get because they want to eat my phone.
They are both beautiful macaws.

He's dealing with a lot of change right now and mourning the loss of his owner. Thank you so much for taking him in and I'm sure he'll come around when he is ready. Also, many birds are hormonal right now, so that might not be helping matters. My sweet Buzzy has been intermittently grouchy these past couple weeks.
