I was looking for an Eclectus, male. I happened upon this (dna forthcoming) 6 month old, hand fed Severe Macaw. When Panama (since named) snuggled on my chest and whispered hello while nuzzling up under my chin, I made an immediate decision.
Smart, very adaptive to new situations & places and truly NOT a screamer or loud; it DOES depend on how it is raised and the surroundings, my heart is so gone!
I started my bird devotion with a rescued male cockatiel I had to hand feed. I loved this little zinger so much I had to share the overflow and decided on a bigger parrot (which is this Macaw). It is not terribly difficult to split time between two birds, equally, and I am having such a good experience I would love even MORE, but cannot imagine how I could divide the time so everyone got even attention and turned out this well adjusted.
I fully, enthusiastically recommend the Macaws (especially the "severe") - for their easy going nature, sweet demeanor and SNUGGABILITY : )

I have two parakeets named Tuffy and Fluffy. They are greenish/blue (Tuffy) and white with sky blue on his back (Fluffy)(like a cloud). I get Tuffy out on my finger and kiss him on his beak and his side near the wing. I then turn him upside down (on my finger) and let him bight me lightly. I then kiss him again. They kiss me through the cage and also fly around. These birds are spoiled and I love them with all of my heart!

I have a 2 year old Severe named Mac, he is very friendly and gets along very well with my other parrots. He really likes Tahitian Treat soda, he will fly off his perch and land on my wrist and drink it right out of the cup, it gets annoying when he sticks his feet into the cup to get the ice, he will not take ice out of my hand, it has to be in a cup. He will usually eat anything I do, as long as I take a bite first. He likes oatmeal and pasta, I found that parrots of all kinds like spicy foods, when I cook I usually add a little cayenne pepper. Mac will not eat chicken, none of my birds will. I have heard from several people that they like chicken, but not in my experience. Of all of my birds, I like Mac the most, he is the most personable, and has the most interesting quirks, he is just fun to be around.

We have a a 8-1/2 mo. female severe named "Gabby" who we visited at the breeders since she was 10 weeks old. We fell in love with her personality. Severe macaws are playful and active, they can be hyper but- calm down quickly with only a whisper. Recently we adopted a 2 yr. old female Severe "Sassy" that was neglected and plucked most of her feathers.... she is adjusting very well in our home, and has stopped the plucking and seems happy.
This species of parrots are very easy to fall in love with, can occupy themselves with chewing, and are very good talkers. We love ours very much and enjoy spending time with them!

My parakeet is Skittles. She is very perky and sweet. I think they are the best pet you could have!
