Reno, the Pet of the Day
Name: Reno
Age: Seventeen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Greenwing Macaw
Home: Jacksonville, Florida, USA
   This 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!
