Wow, my first thread in macaw motorway!! Dream comes true!
It's nearly 36 hours my hahns Pestaa( pistachio) is home. He's unusually quiet, very much hand shy and still not showing any interest in most of the foods I offered. He's only eating guava slices. Obviously, I can't force him... I'm just offering him lots of varieties. His previous owner said, he was an aviary bird and prefers sprouts, nuts and fruits. So, he must be missing his aviary friends. One good thing, he's chewing his toys and perch, preening himself also. Yesterday I sat in front of him and sang few songs. He was eyeing me suspiciously but thankfully no aggression. What I think, it'll be a long journey for me to achieve his friendship.

I'll definitely take photos. Actually he's getting nervous seeing my phone. But one thing, he is absolutely gorgeous. Everything about a macaw whether it's a mini or maxi is ROYAL.

he really really hates cameras, but I got a new one so he didn't catch on, plus you can turn the view screen to take selfies and see what you are doing.
I just got lucky, don't expect it to happen again!
Aw yeah I know a lot of Fids feel that way. It definitely makes it harder to get cute pics. That's great that you were able to sneakily snag this one though :heart:

I hope one day I'll develop this type of bonding with Pestaa. Right now, he's so suspicious about everything.

I don't know what happened to my network, trying to open this website since yesterday without success. Sorry for the late response friends. Here's a sneaky peek
He's adorable! I'm sure he'll come around in no time.

Please tell me, how do you give bath to your Mac! Rio the conure daily takes bath in his bathing bowl. Inca loves shower with me and also enjoys misting. I tried to mist Pestaa but he was neither interested not scared. He's not taking dip in his bowl. What are your experiences?

My mini macaw loves being sprayed but also takes baths in bowls. BUT it was a good couple weeks for his first bath, af least three weeks. He is now taking semi regular baths after being her 6 months. He gets this look and I just know he wants me to get the spray bottle.

I love Pestaa, he is so so so cute!!!

He is so cute. My Hahns will only bath in a stainless steel bowl. And only if I am holding it. Guiseppe also avoids cameras at all costs.
