||Seventeen years old|
||Jacksonville, Florida, USA|
is our Reno. He is very friendly and is just like a member of the family. He
really does not think he is any different than the humans in the house, to be
honest. On a comical note, when he gets a little loud we take him to another
room, turn out the light and close the door. Just before we leave he
expresses his displeasure by calling us "Brat"!
Having a Macaw is just like having a permanent teenager in the house - he can
in turns be loud, or be sweet, demanding of attention or wanting "alone time,"
and be fussy about his food. But at least he will never demand his own car!
Still, we know a Macaw is not the bird for everyone, particularly anyone who
cannot stand loud noises. A sense of humor is also a good thing to have if
you're thinking of bringing a Macaw into your life. Reno keeps us laughing,
and we look forward to many more years with him!
