I have a 1 1/2 year old Harlequin named Dolly. She is drop dead beautiful and has rich deep colors, she is very intelligent and has
a huge vocabulary. She knows many words and can say serveral small
sentences. I bought her when she was 3 months old. She is very bonded
to me and wont let anyone else touch her. She does like men but only
if they have a beard or mustache, otherwise they can forget it.
Harlequins are so hard to find.Only a handful of people breed them and they usually get deposits on the eggs before they even hatch. I recently brought mine to a huge bird show in Orlando to have her microchipped. I had a crowd around me the whole time. I could have sold her 6 times over. She gathered a crowd at every turn. Luckily I would never part with her for any amount of money

This is george again. Over 2 years later and paco has come a long way. He is an outgoing lovable goober who adores my wife, and if she isn't around likes me. God forbid I get near her or him though, if they are together, he will rip me apart. But for the most part he is a great bird. Definitely not for the first time bird owner, like others have commented. It took us 2 years too get him handable and trustworthy, and yes he is very strong.

My first macaw was a Harlequin. They are awesome birds with wonderful personalities. If I ever got a hybrid macaw again, I would defintely get a Harlequin.

My military macaw bobbs his head like a chicken on our hands/arms etc., does anyone know what this means? He's not hurting anyone when he does this but just very curious when and why he does this..

    Yep it is normal.  They bob their head up and down.  They sorta bump you with their beak which doesn't hurt and even bump you in the head with theirs.  They are playing and it is fun.

    That's natural, it's a feeding thing they do when you hand feed them!

    You can use Camicide - not the aerosole but the pump. It is a natural made from Chrysanthemums and it works. You can do another thing which really helps and that is freeze your seed for 24 hours prior to use. That kills the seed moths/knats. Easier.

Hi my hahns macaw is nearly two, and very happy and healthy, but in the lst few months his tail feathers have got shorter and shorter, and look jagged and rough, like they have been rubbed away by climbing the bars. His cage is massive and came with him so is proper size and everything, and this hasnt happened before. could it be too many toys, or the cardboard box house i gave him?

    It does sound like his tail is being rubbed against something, so it could be the toys. Tail feathers don't really get shorter or ragged on their own.

    Sounds like your hahns is plucking/shredding its own tail feathers. Get it some toys that look like they are good for shredding like platted palm leaves or lots of ends of natural string poking out of something.

These birds are breath-taking in personality and in color! I have a friend who owns a Hyacinth macaw name Sky and he was the perfect role model for his species. Gentle, playful, calm, highly intelligent, affectionate, loyal, loving and outgoing. His vocabulary is okay. For anyone on a shopping spree for birds, this bird is worth every penny!

    I own a 3 yr.old female we named Paco. She accidently got loose about 4 months since we had her. I was devistated to say the least. I would follow her calls,because no other bird sounds like this one in our neighborhood. Finally I captured her 3 and a half days later.She was hungry and came to the sound of the macadamia's hitting the pavement(her favorite food). I was never so relieved and happy. It goes to show you that it pays to bond to your bird and to never give up the search. By the way later on that evening I got her back we had tremendous thunder storms and lightening. Thank goodness she was safe inside.

I absolutely adore my Harligold 'Kokomo'! We hand .raised him from the day he hatched. (I owned his parents) He is 7 mos. Old now and so beautiful, lovable & fun! This bird has personality plus and then some... Loves to cuddle and play, but definitely not afraid to let you know when he isn't pleased... Lol. He is a wonderful addition to our family!
