||One year old|
||Red Fronted Macaw|
||Pearland, Texas, USA|
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.
