As a baby I was in a cage with another macaw at Woody's Bird Farm in PA. My parents actually choose the other guy #26, but someone else beat them to the deposit money...so they were stuck with me, lol....Mom and Dad visited me until I was big enough to go home with them, (I eggcitedly anticipated their arrival), and while they were visiting me, #26 went home with his new parronts but was returned a couple of weeks later skinny and wary of humans. Boy am I ever glad Mom and Dad were slow with the dough..

Hi! My name is Rio

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Hanover, PA.

Big Bird, Turkey Bird....and when I'm misbehaving, which hardly EVER happens (hehehe) "Featherduster"- ...(can you believe they'd call me that?)

15 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

BANANAS! crackers, shelled walnuts, crackers, any nut in a shell, crackers, pasta, crackers, banana chips, crackers.

On the sofa with Mom....as long as a "certain" other macaw isn't already there.

When someone comes in the front door and doesn't say hello to me, I get anxious. When Mom plays fetch w/Lucie I have to get in my cage, so then I'll walk around the bottom of my cage saying "Ruff Ruff Ruff!" cuz I wanna play too.

We chat all of the time.

I always yell "Whatta ya say?" or "How about a cracker" when I want a treat (quite often as you might have guessed). I get louder and louder until I get one. Once I get my treat I remember to say "Mmmmmm, Thank You.".

Say hello or plug your ears...it's your choice..

  Hi Rio
How are you sweetie? It's great to be back on BC, I've missed all my friends! I did support Kaji's BOTM campaign & give congrats to BOTD winners, but mom has been promising me for weeks that we would again blog ALL my friends! I have REALLY missed you all!

Mom's STEELERS won the playoff game last night but mom is still fuming over the game! These two teams are arch rivals & we expected a physical game, but one player on the opposing team took it way to far! He made a dirty, illegal hit on our star receiver and almost took his head off! Fans kept throwing debris onto the field at our players! Our QB had to be escorted off the field by the dozen security guards! Mom prays that Antonio Brown is OK & is able to play next week in the AFC Championship game!
Have a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote.
Your long lost friend

  Congrats for BOTD Mr Rio old friend-from Jen Lynn
...have a great day in the magic castle, we miss your flock on the BC! The good news on our BC is Kiddo's daddy is home from the hospital, but has to do dialysis 3 times a week until they produce better numbers! We also got a sweet surprise phone call from Ms Staci Bigfoot, her doctors are still befuddled about what is wrong with her, strange! Now on to the TNF game, WOW, what a miracle finish for the Packers, we are so happy for them, and the game was won with no time on the clock after a face mask penalty by Detroit, the Pack deserved this win, and are now back in the hunt for a divisional championship! Have a great TGIF and give our love to all in your happy home see ya all tomorrow...

Friday love from Jenny & our Dallas family...have a great day in the castle,
