Fred, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fred
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Catalina Macaw
Home: Louisiana, USA
   This is Fred. Fred is a Catalina Macaw, He is about five years old, he was one of my father's birds. My father passed last year of cancer and I purchased five of his birds from him before his passing, Because he was too stubborn to accept my money as a gift. Any way back to Fred. Catalina Macaws Are a hybrid cross between, a Scarlet Macaw and a Blue and Gold Macaw. This guy thinks he rules the world. He is also my doorman. His cage is situated near the front door. He greets everyone with a very loud "HI," or Hello. Being the intelligent bird that he is, when we are talking to guests about to leave as we approach the front door Fred very loudly says "Bye Bye." He has a vocabulary somewhere in the neighborhood of about 50 words (conservatively), we have never really counted!
