Maccardi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Maccardi
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Red Fronted Macaw
Home: Pearland, Texas, USA
   This is my Red Fronted Macaw, Maccardi. He's been with me since the beginning of June, and he will turn one year old on September 26th. What a handful of bird! He's very active, a great eater, loves to be held and pet but can be a bit nippy at times. He can be very gentle too sometimes. We are working on his nippiness. I've been told that he will probably grow out of this nippy stage unless of course I am reinforcing the behavior.

    Maccardi has so many wonderful qualities all rolled into a medium size package. He has such a sweetness about him like no other bird I know. He loves attention and interacting with his chosen one (me) and is very affectionate and playful. I love, love, love when he flips over on his back while in my arms for a good belly rub-soooo sweet. He is the perfect size and his coloring is gorgeous. He makes me feel pretty special too like when I walk into the bird room and he drops whatever it is he is doing to come see me-awww.

    He is a very smart birdie. He learned how to turn around in just a day or two. He says a few words like step up and he says "hi" to me every morning. He is a very special bird. I feel very fortunate that he has allowed me to be part of his life.
