My husband just put a deposit down on a 4 1/2 month old Greenwing for me. I am very excited to add it to our flock when it's weaned and ready to go! Its feathered family will include a Blue and Gold macaw, a Severe Macaw, an Umbrella Cockatoo and a Sun Conure.

I have 8 macaws-A Blue and Gold named Jack, a Scarlet named Monty, a Capri named Sir Lancelot, a Maui Sunset named 007, a Military Macaw named Jordan, a Hyacinth named Tucker, and a Green-winged Macaw named Africo. Of all my birds, as well as my Double-Yellow Headed Amazon Bob (No, I didn't name him that), he is the sweetest. He adores siting on my belly and sweet-talking me. It's adorable! He loves everyone he meets and will not refrain from kissing every guest we have and saying "Hi, baby". But what makes me feel so good is that he has not said "I love you" to anyone...Except me.

A gorgeous blue-throated girl named Kailani owns me. She is the sweetest, cuddliest bird I have ever owned. She'd lay in my arms for hours on end if I let her! I agree with Joe that they are one-person birds. Kailani LOVES me, but will bite anyone else and refuse to get up on their arm. It's funny, and makes me feel special, but I'm trying to train her out of it. So far it isn't working so well. She acts like a total baby with me though. When I'm cuddling her, she'll flip a wing every now and then and make this pitiful sweet little baby-like macaw sound that I just love. I hope she never grows out of that.

Make sure to feed your macaw baby freshly sprouted seeds and nuts on a daily basis, they'll thank you for it ;)

My Red-fronted Macaw, Tinker, is the sweetest boy in the whole wide world. This is a great macaw that everyone should have.

I, um, forgot my name... - 2006-03-26
I have a Sun Conure named Jenga, a Blue and Gold Macaw named Yella' Belly, and a Camelot Macaw named Sir Lancelot (We call him Lance). Lance is a wonderful, sweet, and loving bird that wants no more in life than to sit under my chin and coo. He is a big cuddler that loves everyone, especially women. He shows of to his girlfriend Jenga, but she is never impressed. He competes with my other male Yella' Belly to win Jenga's affection.
Sir Lancelot will die for bananas and strawberry yogurt. He loves all kinds of fruits and vegetables, which is good because it's very healthy for him! I know that this bird is for experienced people only, but I dearly recommend the Camelot Macaw for anyone willing to share a room in their hearts for a bird that only wants to love and be loved.

I have a male Blue and Gold Macaw named Sun Belly. I got him from a well known breeder. Sun Belly is a beautiful, outgoing sweetheart that is an amazingly playful bird with a gentle and loving personality. His cage, a 5 by 5 by 5 California cage with a playtop, is located in the family room where attention is abundant. He can say a weak 'Hello' and a cute 'I'm Sun Belly!' She is very popular with people since he comes to work with me and sits no a stand in the lobby.
I really love him more than anything and he is spoiled rotten...In a sweet sort of way. :)

I have a male Illiger macaw named Smudge. He is a very palyful, sweet, and funny bird. He knows how to play dead, give a high five, play basketball, put a coin in a piggy bank, wave, and many more tricks. This just shows how intelligent he is. He says:
Love ya'
Hello, I'm Smudge
I really reccommend these birds for anyone who is willing to give it the love and care it thrives on, and can put up with its noise, mess, and separation anxiety.

a 'quaternary' would be a good name for this hybrid.

I was adopted by a harlequin macaw. She was a rescue, taken from her previous home by the Health Dept due to neglect, starvation and deplorable conditions. She was lucky to still be alive and in pretty good shape -- many of the other animals were not. We had a bit of a rocky start given her history and my relative inexperience with birds; but we quickly got help through a local bird store, a bird behaviorist, an avian vet and websites like this one. Today she's a lovely bird, happy, talkative, well-adjusted, playful, naughty, noisy and NEVER hungry! Macaws are amazing birds and it's wonderful to see her happy and healthy -- such a difference from the sad, crying, frightenend, miserable bird who moved in with me a few years ago. I wouldn't recommend a rescue as your first bird -- I was successful, but very lucky I had access to great resources and able to devote a lot of time and money to her rehabilitation. Rescues are not "free" birds and can end up costing you much more than if you had purchased a hand-raised baby!
