is "Bo" aka "BoBo". Bo is one of six birds in our flock. When she
first came to us, she was very aggressive and she was 'defending' her cage
against anyone coming near her. She was a rescue bird, so this is
understandable. Today, Bo seems so content and she is very gentle. Bo has
quiet a vocabulary - from 'watcha doin' to 'Peekaboo' to "Hi Bo!", to
answering with a 'Hello' when the phone rings. When we turn out the light
in the bird room, Bo whispers "bye, bye". She looks out the window when I
come home from work and shrieks with excitement. (Bo loves to walk around
the kitchen floor with toys and of course she chases toes ... which makes
her chuckle when she gets the reaction from the attacked she wants. Bo is
very playful! She plays peek-a-boo with anyone that wants to cover their
eyes in front of her.
Bo loves to eat all kinds of fruits and vegetables, all types of nuts (her
favorites are the Pistachios). She likes to sit at a play stand near the
dinner table and eats when we eat. She loves to drink cranberry juice and
or water not from her cup but much rather from my glass!
Bo is our very, very, very special Macaw! We love her very much!
