David, mom's fiance, and a friend of his saw me in a local pet shop. I use to live with an older couple for the first twelve years of my life, but they no longer could care for me. He brought mom to the store and mom fell in love with me. She was talking to me through my cage and an employee asked if she wanted to see me. Mom never had a bird quite so large as I, so a bit hesitant she said yes. The man tried to get me, but I never really liked men, so I showed him the only way I could and bit him. Mom's always been good with birds and decided to give it a try. She seemed nice, so I let her pick me up. Mom couldn't leave without me because she fell in love with me. But who could resist?!?.

Hi! My name is Maxine

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Tipton, MI.

Max, Maximus (because I'm the greatest), Stevie Wonder

23 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

I love brazil nuts and walnuts. I also love bananas, and sometimes will eat grapes. I'm not big into other fruits or veggies at all, but mom says they're good for me, so I try to please her.

Anywhere with mom. She tries setting on playtrees and stands, but I lift my foot up until she feels sorry enough to come get me.

I hate it when mom plays with the rest of the flock. The rest of MY flock consists of a female Blue-Fronted Amazon named Eddie, a male Nanday Conure named Popeye, a female Jenday-Goldcap mix Conure named Sunny, a female Cockatiel named Roger, and a Peach-faced lovebird named Maya. The rest of the flock gets along great with each other, but since I'm leader, I'm too good to play and I make sure to show them whose boss. That's why mom makes sure I'm not around them. But I get soooo jealous when she plays with them.

My mom's the greatest! I love daddy too; but we don't get along to well because I always show him who's boss. Although when mom bought me she got my old cage, she bought me a new one, almost twice the size! She's always buying me new toys, so I have to make sure I keep up with her by destroying them. She also switched me to pellets, which isn't at all that bad. My favorite thing to do is to go out on walks and rides with mom and dad. They even bought me my own special leash so nothing happens to me.

I love to sway my head back and forth like Stevie Wonder while I dance..

  Hi Maxine
Hi Maxine. Hope you're still being a good girl. Mom's got some Blue & Gold girls here and they are a bit fiesty at times. Remember don't bite the hand that feeds you.
We Macaws and Maxines need to stick together. Here's a vote for you.
Later, Maxine

Come visit me, Dinky, Nibbles, Maxine, Bingo & Tootsie.

  Hi Maxine
Welcome. I read you have a sibling Blue-fronted Amazon, that is what I am :) I am spoiled too and always want to be with my mom instead of my playtop and all that too. I am potty trained, so that helps me stay longer with her till she estimates the next one, I am put back asked to potty , I go , she praises me and gets me back to cuddle :)
