Bo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bo
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Scarlet Macaw
Home: Melrose, Massachusetts, USA
   This 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!
