My wife and I have a great,and beautifull Blue and Gold named KoKo.
He is three years old , and we have had him/her since he was fourteen weeks old. He gets along with our labrador and two cats very well. actually he is the boss among our animals, but they have a very symbiotic relationship that could be on "funniest videos" every day. He can say numerous words and phrases, such as: Hello Koko, uh-oh, bad bird, good bird, peek-a-boo and much more. Every time he hears a knock on the door or the phone ring he answers Hello! My wife and I can both handle him and encourage others to do the same under supervision so that he will not go one sided. He does favor me more, but I worked with him at the start to be handled by my wife and friends, and it has made him an important member of the family.

I got to know (more-or-less) a Scarlet Macaw in the 1980s when I was staying in a hotel in the Yucatan. The building was in the depths of the forest, and had windows without glass and a ground floor that opened on all sides to the jungle. The bird, I imagine, was quite old. It had no cage, just wandered around the ground floor of the hotel. I never saw it leave the building. It yammered to itself incessantly, and had a broken wing which it dragged along the floor. Seemingly a very unhappy bird. It definitely did not like to be bothered; if you got in its way it would yowl at you. I always felt sorry for it. It think its life was going badly. I stayed at the hotel for a month, working on a screenplay, and saw a small army of tourists come and go. Everyone was introduced to the bird, and most ended up being quite wary of it. Sometimes, during dinner in the dining room, it would just stand at the far side of the room and watch the guests eat.

I have a six year old Yellow Collared named Elvis. Elvis is quite the character. He is not a good talker, but he makes up for it in his personality. He is a bit hyperactive, but a great pet.

I have a male B&G named Jasper. He is now 2 1/2. We adopted him from the breeder when he was 1 yr old. He is definately a mama boy and I cannot imagine my life without him. Sometimes my husband thinks I love Jasper more than him. LOL. Jasper has an extensive vocabulary. He is now saying "Mama" and I say "yes sweetheart", and then he says "I love you mama" and I answer "I love you to Jasper". He is truely a joy and one of the loves of my life. C. Steele

Hello, i have a Harlequin Macaw female Terra. she is a dream come true for me. i always wanted a full-sized macaw. she is 19 months old, and very lovable!!! she is so precious to me and my boyfriend. she has a good vocabulary, very demanding too. she eats all kinds of foods i make plus her treats etc. she is also around 4 other parrots that we have. she does scream alot when i walk by her cage. she spends all of her time with me. or on top of her cage playing. she is a big clown too. we got her from previous owners who could not keep her anymore. they didnt have the time to spend with her. i do. we love her to pieces. she comes looking for me anytime she wants me or screams for my attention. she is so spoiled, lol!!! and by the way, she looks exactly like the Catalina Macaw. she is a gorgeous bird!!!

i have a female harlequin macaw. and she is a very loving, playful bird. she is 19 months old, and her name is terra. she has bonded with me only it seems, although she does love her "papa". she would rather be with me period!!! i cannot walk by her without her screaming. she demands attention 24/7. she has plenty to play and amuse herself. but, its always me she wants!!! but screaming is my problem, any ideas?

i have had a harlequin macaw for 6-1/2 years - she is 8 years old and was given to me by a 75 year old customer after her husband died. Abigail was only 18 months old when i got her and she immediately bonded to me since i held her on my arm instead of on a stick. she is really sweet but only to me. she does not like anyone else, mainly because everyone else is scared of her. last week my baby brother passed away and i inherited his 5 year old umbrella cockatoo and i have put her cage right next to abigail - they seem to like each others company. i am wondering, if they can ever be put together or if they will they fight.

We have a three year old greenwing macaw. He is not a bird but a part of our family. He loves everyone in the family. He will lay like a baby in my nine year old daughters arms. He comes looking for you when you are not in the same room as him. He is the most loving bird I have ever seen. He has a rope that he has to sleep with every night, this rope toy came with him when we purchased him. He uses it for security. He does not play or chew on it. He sits on his swing, and brings the rope over the swing and puts his wing around it and then goes to sleep. I have never seen a bird do this before. He is a part of our family and we would never be able to part with him.
