i would just like to say that birds belong in the wild and are happiest when flying around in the sky with others of their kind.
this is also when they look at their most fascinating and beautiful, and i have been lucky enough to view scarlet macaws in central america.
they are "apparently" in danger of extinction, but this is mainly due to eggs being poached which are then sold across the world. owning one of these birds is therefore being part of the problem

I just bought a ruby. the first half an hour, oh maaaaaaaaaan he was rough, and I got alot of bruises from his bites. After we became friends, all he wanted was scratch, scratch, scratch. on his head and under his wings. I had to be sure not to scratch his wings too long, or his head and neck would miss out! And he would let me know it. I gave 1890.00 for him, 40x30x72 wrought iron cage, wrought iron play stand all for 2400.00 total!

I moved in with my cousin and she had a shamrock named buhbuh. i had a pair of senegals, a pair of sun conures, a sulfur crested cockatoo, and buhbuh inspired me to get my own shamrock. I named him gump who was a little more wild. since then I have moved out and sold/traded all of those birds except for buhbuh he is my best friend and I wouldn't trade/sell him for the world

Hi There, We got our Hahn's Macaw just over a week ago after a two week period where we visited him at the pet shop on a nearly daily basis. We've called him Retro, after his habit of walking backwards along the floor or work top on which he may be. There are only a few Avian vets here in South Africa so we have not really any proof that he is a 'he'but we do know that he was born in May this year. This is an amazing bird and the size of it does not at all describe the character! We also have a blue fronted Amazon and while it's too early to tell whether they will get on, it has been lovely watching them call to each other and show off by doing little tricks like hanging upside down and being copied by the other. I have been most impressed with how gentle this little bird is and even when he grasps a finger it is not with any real pressure, and always with a very close inspection with the amazingly long tongue. I recommend this species to anyone but caution you that they do have a really good morning call!

I have kept birds all my life, but always they have been abused. I am fourteen years old; admittedly not very old, but I know alot about birds for my age. Recently when going to a doctor in Orlando I stopped in a bird store and they had so many birds it was overwhelming! Almost all macaws, of those nearly all scarlets. Then I saw this beautiful bird. She wasn't talking at all, but she was so sweet! I thought she was a millitary macaw, but she was a little too brightly colored. So I did some research, and found out she was a shamrock macaw. This page was very useful!
All I can hope is that I save enough money to buy her before they sell her. I felt a real connection with that bird, never met a sweeter bird. The only thing she said the entire time I was there was "I love you'. AWW.
Hope I can save up, Again, very helpful!

I have hand raised a baby male greenwing from the egg...he was too big for the egg, so his beak is bent way to the side, but he is fine with any type of food, has learned to soak the hard pellets and loves what we eat. The breeder i got him from noticed the deformity, was going out of business, wanted $1,700 or she was going to break its neck, due to unsaleabilty..Is sad that people like this exist...but he has become my best and truest buddy over the last five years and is the best investment i have ever made in a friend (is a toss up between the investment in him and the investment in my wife....lol) but as has been said, not a first bird for a bird-lover to own..they do get moody, try to act tough and scary, but are extremely intelligent and very lovable...if its not your first experiance with larger birds, i would highly recommend a greenwing macaw if you are looking for the best friend you have ever had.

As a parrot behaviorst and having done rescue for numerous years...you MUST understand, especially regarding Macaws that any and all have the potential to bite and cause serious injury. You can have a wonderful, lifetime mate with them, but they are, foremost, a wild animal, most a mere 3rd generation from the wild...also, they are a product of their environment and have days in which they do not want bothered. If you respect their boundaries and respect the damage a beak can do, they make the most awesome pets ever! I just returned from a place that at last count had over 60 dead macaws and 35 more that may have to be euthanized. All due to poor nutrition and lack of basic care/needs. You must also ALWAYS place the birds needs first. If it's too much, please find an adequate home.
