just love mini macaws! We got Bacio last Valentine's Day, and his name
is Italian for 'kiss' because its what he does all the time! He is our
little clown, always singing, laughing and saying 'hello' in his cartoon
voice. He is first bird though, and spends a lot of time taking away toys
from Bella. This keeps him fairly busy, because Bella is more
mischevious and puts everything she sees in her mouth. She is a more
active bird, and likes to play peek a boo by hiding her head in my shirt
and loves it when I lay on the floor and 'wrestle' with her. She is also
very affectionate, and loves to snuggle up with me as I preen her feathers.
Bacio is very vocal - always making 'joyful' noises. Bella has a softer
voice, and for a macaw is surprisingly quiet. I'm hoping this will
change as she gets older, because I would love to hear her sing as well.
together these two make me smile and laugh every day, and I'm very happy
to be spending the next 40 years of my life with them!!!
