I cannot imagine a more delightful bird! Our Bart is eight years old and has an extensive vocabulary, including phrases and imitations. He is not aggressive and allows hugs. He will also turn over for a belly rub and will hold our fingers in his mouth, while he bobs his head to give us a regurgitated treat. We have many birds, including a charming Cockatoo and a naughty Conure, but none as entertaining and sweet as our Catalina, Big Bart. I am so grateful for the experience.

I also have a bluffon. Cece, he came to me a from a very nice lady who could not handle him. These guys are very strong and large(1300+ Grams)so they are not for the first time bird owner or one that the beak scares.

I have a severe macaw named Fred. I bought him from a woman who had a day care and also had a cockatoo. He was very uphappy when I went to see him. He had no tail feathers and was mostly brown because of constant preening. His owner said she kept him in his cage most of the time because of the children. Anyway, I purchased him that night and have had him for alittle over a year. He finally has molted and his tail feathers are beautiful. He is a wonderful companion. He loves me very much and tries to repeat everything I say. When I ask him anything that starts with "do" he always says "all right". He is a total crack-up. Since then I purchased a cag. Fred is very jealous of him, but tolerates him just the same.
He is teaching the cag how to talk. Fred is so intelligent. I had no idea these birds were so wonderful!!!

We have had birds for a year and a half now, but just got our baby blue and gold about a month ago. He is a totally different experience. He is such a joy to be with. He is seven months old and so loving. He loves for you to hug him and kiss him. He will lay on his back for you to tickle his belly and laughs. He follows us around like a little puppy. Our family says we talk about our birds more than most people do about their kids. I tell them that is alright because they are our kids.

I have raised harlequin macaws for fifteen years. I kept my first baby, also a few others that had unique beginnings. They are very smart, pick up new phrases quickly and so very loving. I have blue & gold, scalets and greenwings but the harlequins are my very favorite.

I have a Greenwing & a Blue & Gold. Both are fantastic but the Greenwing stole my heart the first time I met him. They have the most fantastic characters, real lovable, gentle giants..!!

I have a B&G named Alex. I have had him for 3 years and I hand fed him for 3 months. Alex has bonded to me quite well and has a very good vocabulary for his age. I have found that he is so intelligent that I have to be careful. I should have named him houdini cause he has figured out how to remove the latches that secure his cage doors. He watches every move I make when I replace the latches and he removes them in minutes flat and hides the latch in his cage. He has managed to remove bolts that hold the cage together. No matter how many toys he has he manages to play with the things that he shouldnt makeing him quite mischevious. You can see that in his eyes, almost like what can I get into next. He does not like the fact that I smoke so he takes the cigarettes out of my pocket and throws them on the floor, guess he is giving me a hint. One thing for sure, he has lots of personality and I love him. I would never part with him!

I have a four year old and even though he can be loud at times I have found that he really does understand words. He has spoken in sentences knowing when to say them and what he wants. He really has a clown side to him but is very loving. I have had so many comments on his colors and attractiveness that I could have sold him many times but I can not sell part of my family. Believe me he is just another kid in the house. He will not let anyone else touch him and when I have him he will not let anyone else get close to me. He is very protective of me and I love every minute of it.

My husband and I have 2 Blue and Gold name Gina 9 yrs,and Sunny is 1yr. These 2 birds have been a joy to have. They are extremely smart birds. Gina and Sunny will eat just about anything we eat. They are very playful and can say a few words. Gina loves to yell momma and Sunny practice her words at night when we put her to bed. When she says hey her eyes will always flash and she will get right up to you and say Hey! They are the joy of our life!!
