Where the author said "Harligold"; I think they meant "Starlight". I believe the author meant to say that a Starlight Macaw comes from the union of a Miligold Macaw and a Scarlet Macaw.

    Yes, the Starlight is a hybrid derived from the Scarlet and the Milligold. It is a beautiful bird and offers the much in the way of personality. Enjoy her.

Today, I just went out and found a baby Camelot in our Scarlet Macaw and Catalina Macaw's nesting box, She still has one egg,
She bit my husband when he went to look.. all Macaws are different. I have a baby 3 months old, (handfed) Military who will not let me put her down.. her parents are very quiet, but she is a screamer if she cannot be held, or at feeding time, She sure lets me know.. I also raised and handfed a baby Scarlet Macaw.. she refuses to let anyone near me or my husband . She is a year old now and is trying to teach the other baby to "Step Up" .. I love Macaws. I have to watch her or she will pull the Military's feathers, and may try to hurt her.. when one is out, the other is up, my bedroom is a mess.. but I really don't care, because they love me so much.

My family is owned by a female blue throated macaw. She is about 4 1/2 yrs old now and has become very temperamental. She use to be very affectionate, but now will only permit us to hold her as long as no attempt is made to pet or cuddle. She also is very vocal (screaming, very loudly). She is free flighted and has range of the house. Interesting enough, she will destroy anything placed in her cage, but is content to sit and watch without any destructive behavior while roaming the house. She is very aloof, and does not care to interact with people.

We just got a male Severe Macaw that we are still hand feeding, and I am just a little confused to what can I feed him. Also I would like tips about how can I teach him to talk. He does get nippy with my kids and @ times w/me but he seems to be catching and understanding what NO means. I have a green cheek conure but they don't get along. Please if anybody has any tips please tell me soon.

    Hi Angie,
    When I got my severe, he loved to be hand fed and wasn't really interested in eating other food until one day when I was holding him and eating a banana. I offered him some and he loved it. He then began to eat more things. He loves "people" food. Yes, really work with him and the biting as that beak is lethal. I just kept working with my bird and now he talks a lot. Good luck, Denise

    Breed them if you would like. I have one and he paired up with my blue and gold. They have been working the nest box but no eggs yet.

    HI Brad, I also have one of each of these birds. Personally I think it takes away from their beauty when they are crossed. I think the Scarlets are the most Gorgeous birds there are. But so are the Hyacinths. I do not think they should be crossed. But good luck with what ever you do! Merry Christmas!

    Please research the various breeds of macaws & each ones temperament & personality before buying one for a pet. doing this will ensure buying one that best suits your environment & the amount of time you can commit to this bird. You should buy a bird by what best suits your time, availability & commitment to the bird, rather than buying one because of the way it looks & thinking its so beautiful. Don't go by the birds beauty. Go by the birds temperament, needs, personality traits & whether or not you can accommodate the need for such a large space, expensive food & toys, & how much time you are able to commit to the bird on a daily basis. Please, please, please do your research before choosing a bird for a companion. You want to get the bird that would best suit you, your home & your surroundings. Including how it may affect any neighbors you have due to how loud & boisterous they can be. You want to get what's best for you, not what is the prettiest to you.

I rescued my Military out of a tree. It took me five days to get her. I have had a DNA and she is a she. She is my Bird 24/7. My wife or daughter cannot touch her. She goes everywhere with me and my three dogs. I would like her to get more friendly with them any suggestions? The avian vet says when I took her after rescuing her she was probably between 2/3. I rescued her on 6/20/09. I would also like to teach her to talk. She always says hello when a person comes around. I take her to the Bank because everyone wants to see her. She also rides on my motorcycle in the side car with my dogs. I put a perch in the sidecar and she really enjoys it. I live in SoCal. so weather is not a big problem. Her favorite food is pasta and French fries. She does get a well rounded diet tho. The vet is amazed at how she has bonded with me. I would still like her to be more friendly to other people. Anyone can help please e mail me direct. Thanks

    Hello, the blue and gold macaw parrots are the best. I am willing to give out 8 other parrots for adoption maybe if you are interested, I will offer any to you.

    Hi we have a Blue and Gold Macaw, we hand feed her. Pebbles is now 12 years old, my name is Wanda she always hated me. This parrot only loves my husband and I don't know why because, he was out the sea all the time. I feed her, bathe her change her cage, and now she is free in a stand. My husband is the only can pick her up and give her love. She screams if my husband come close to me. If you female get a bird please get a male that is my belief.
