||Five months old|
is Captain Jack. Captain Jack resides here in Kansas with me. I love
animals and birds. I had birds through middle school and high school. After
moving into a house of my own, I decided to get a pet bird. I leaned towards
a Hahn's macaw (since I have always desired to have a macaw, and they are the smallest).
I found a lady that was weaning a baby. He had to be shipped to me by plane.
The day came for me to pick him up at the airport, and I was so excited. We
quickly became friends. Captain Jack is a sweet bird. He says hello and step
up. I think it is funny he attacks the cell phone or unscrews the metal clip
that a toy hangs on and tosses the toy to the ground.
I do feel guilty right now when Captain Jack calls for me when he sees I am
leaving to go to work. Since captive birds have their needs meet like Captain
Jack having fresh water daily, fruits, brown rice, cashews, almonds, cooked
beans, veggies, etc. he needs to have toys and interaction to keep him from
getting bored! I do love my Hahns macaw. He is such a sweet guy. I am so glad
I have him after wishing for a bird for so long!
