We are Sammy's third home. His 2nd owner was owed money by his 1st owner. Where he was kept in the basement for screaming. The 2nd accepted Sammy as payment to get him out of there, but realized he didn't have the time. When we met Sam, he was in a rusty homemage cage with one toy and was being fed a sunflower seed mix. Sammy was still so sweet, with no visable damage. He was clumsy. We changed his cage and diet. And he has blossomed into a very agile boy.. Awards

Hi! My name is Sammy

I am a Scarlet Macaw from Frankfort, IL.

Sam Sam, Cave Bird - he grunts.

13 years old   M

Scarlet Macaw

MEAT. I love all meat. Almonds, oat meal and pears.

Jungle Room, Dad's lap and cage top.

Why can't food be served to me quicker.

They spend time with me each day.

When he gets excited, from play or attention. He bites his leg and screeches. I guess this was his only source of amusement before, which unfortunately has become habit..

  Hello Sammy,
don't let MoMo hear that Karen will start liking you more. She WILL put you on that "judging-list" as # 11 and shredder you up, hehehe. Glad your mom had a chance to go to that birdshow and bring home some new toys. Can't wait to see new pictures. Maybe our mom can come up with some new ideas. We don't touch any toy she's putting into our cage. Hard to believe that you are gentle with your toys but hey.....BEAKS fool sometimes. You take care, we see you soon. B & S

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Hi Sam Sam,
we saw that you meet the 'jungle birds' in Florida. Yeah, them guys are so lucky living in the sun and warmth. We flew in to them a few weeks ago and mom said she just loves their outside setting. To bad for mom that she can't do that for us, living in the wrong climate. ( lucky dad, hehehe. ). He already flipped yesterday after he found out how much mom spend on them swings and other toys. Hehehe, lets wait for the impression on his face when he'll find out about the sandblasted treestand mom plans on getting. See you soon, birdie-hugs & a vote of course.

  seedy owners should only be allowed pic of parrots
It does ones heart good to hear all the stories with happy endings. Most of the flock our house are re-homes and rescues. And we like meat too, every now and then, n fact some of us, I won't name names, steal it off of the plates at dinner, and that is a funny site, a CAG dragging a chunk of steak off and trying to fly.
Hope you aren't too chilly out there in IL, it's chilly here for us at the moment. We like your pic's. they feel homey, loved and safe. come visit our flock of 10...
