I have to say reading others posts really warmed my heart. This past Feb. we lost our red-lored amazon during a very cold spell and were absolutely heart-broken. She was not clipped and would love to fly all around the house. We were forced out of the house at about 7 am due to the neighbors in the other side having carbon monoxide problems. Candi was fine til the fire trucks got there, and then was very skittish. On the way back in to the house, she jumped from something and took off. . . we never saw her again though we spent 10and1/2 hours walking in the 5 degree day looking. Though I then was so lost, I now do believe that when the door closes, look for the open window. Six weeks later, my husband and I were offered a "scarlet macaw." Of course we were a little hesitant til we met Hauto. He is truly a green wing who was bought by someone who apparently had more money then sense. The bird was allowed to fly around their house while the child pursued with a baseball bat, or so the story goes. The result. . . a bird with two broken wings that instead of being taken to the vet was put in his cage with one perch in the basement with barely enough food to keep him alive. When he was two he was given to a friend of a friend who couldn't keep him because of a young daughter whose new favorite thing was to stick fingers in the cage. So he was offered to us and after meeting him there was no way not to. For all that he has been through, he is an amazing bird. He is actually a green-wing and after a few showers and a few weeks of a good diet he looks great. the vet gave him a clean bill of health, except for 2 wing that will never heal. He says a few words and continues to learn more. My family is blessed to have him, and we don't need to worry that he will ever fly away.

My name is Paulie, and I am 8 years old. I was found in a basement in a small cage with three other birds. My new owner came to visit me and he felt sorry for me. I made an effort to trust him so I jumped up on his arm without biting him. He decided then he wanted to take me home so he bought me a large cage all of my own to enjoy with toys and everything. I get a bath every morning and I now eat veggies and fruits as well as regular bird food. I live with a Hahns Macaw named George, A Harlequin Macaw named McKala, a sengal named Dusty, and of course the conure named Gandoff. My owner knows that I am a rare find and after the life I had this one makes me feel so at home. I get to see and listen to videos of birds in the wild and my new owner wants to take me outside like he does McKala. Yes he uses a harness. Paulie, is a great bird, I have noticed that like all other comments here he does not like being handled as much as the other birds. But being he was 8 when he came here and not used to being handled I think he is doing great.

Hi I have had my catalina macaw for about a month. He/she loves my hubby but when he is gone rocky clings to my 5 yr old daughter. We bought rocky from a lady who was his/her third home. I have definitely found a new love for the large birds, this will be his/her forever home. I am glad that we have Rocky. I plan on having her/him dna tested than microchipped. Being 6-7 yrs old, we will have a long life together.:) thanks for the info before my purchase.

My Blue Throat is 3 years old and makes me laugh all the time. He is a born clown who loves to hang, flip, and generally do whatever it takes to get your attention. Although he prefers me, he will go to anyone for attention as long as they don't try to cuddle him. His only drawback is that he is a natural engineer and has been able to open any lock on any cage that he has had. His newest cage is a custom built stainless steel cage which took him approximately 30 seconds to figure out. It is now padlocked when we are not home. I would recommend this breed to any macaw lover that wants a more docile, slightly smaller species.

My Catalina Macaw Max is the light my moms and my life. He is very funny and loves to hang by his beak and squawk. He barks like a dog and will say hi if you are watching tv instead of paying attention to him. He took some time for me to get use to but we love him and Me and him are around the same age (17). Hes very loving, when he wants to be. We wouldn't sell him for the world.

I would call the harlequin shamrock hybrid a "Copper Fire" as it has all the colors of a piece of copper heated by a hot flame. Due to the rarity of this bird I doubt there actually is a "common" name as yet. So the breeder of course can call it what they will.

My Blue and Gold, Comet, is the sweetest thing. Though he is big, he is very cuddly and gentle (though everyone gets cranky). He gets along very well with my Scarlet Macaw Ralph. He even likes to say hi to my cockatiels Joey and Mico and my Sun Conure, Lucas. He loves to play on his 3 playstands around the house and boogie in his outdoor aviary with Ralph. His favorite foods are chicken, veggie pizza, and fresh pineapple,and he loves to toss around peas that are still in the pod! These animals are beautiful and amazing companions, but you do have to be experienced to have these birds.
