Connor - Severe Macaw
Hatch Date: 2005
Connor is also featured on our Large Birds page.
I am a beautiful bird with a lot of personality. I love attention and will sit on your lap for pets and love. I tolerate preening but only so much before I am done.
I like to play under the covers and will roll over and laugh. I talk well and have a darling voice and laugh. I will say bye when you put on your jacket to leave the house. I also say "Peek-a-boo", "helloo", "mama", "i love you", "cracker", "meow" and more.
I am a picky eater and resists fresh food. It is important for my health to try different veggies, fruits and mash so I have the opportunity to find something I enjoy. My favorite word is cracker but I haven’t explained to my foster mom what kind of cracker I want. I like to keep some secrets after all.
I have not had a stable home environment in some time so perhaps with time and patience I can learn to trust my new parront. I say step up a lot but will bluff that I am going to bite. My new parront will have to be cautious but have a strong personality to deal with my stubbornness. My foster mom says I do step up pretty well even though I can act difficult.
I do not do well on your shoulder when you walk around as I can bite your neck if I become frightened with changes. I don’t bite terribly hard but it does hurt.
I am a great bird but will require someone with big bird experience. As my foster mom says I am a great little macaw but am all macaw. Contact EBR if you are interested in meeting me.
