Our Goffin's died and a friend told us about this great breeder...we weren't sure we were ready for another bird and then we met Merlin...we knew he would fit in with our other macaw "Scarlet" and we spent many weeks traveling to get to know him...we finally got him home and we "Merlin and us" are very happy to be united...he owns us and knows it..

Hi! My name is Merlin

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Independence, KS.


11 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

banana, pasta, walnuts (in the shell) and "apples" also grapes and Cooked Chicken Thighs Bones, Pistacios and Almonds(can only find them here in the winter.. .Bummer)

On his Tree outside of his cage with us...on the back of our chairs

not paying attention to him...leaving the room without telling him...going outside without him...not talking to him

She feeds me my favorite foods...she spends time with me even when there is none...she loves me and teaches me to love and respect other birds and people...she lets me play with other humans and she feeds me my favorite "apples" because everything is apples to me. She lets me sing and dance and sleep in her arms while still watching out for me so I don't get hurt or stressed out.

swinging. ..swinging upside down...calling "Steve, Steve, Steve...OWW!.

I am the baby and though I am spoiled I do not rule the roost. That is reserved for the human "Mistie" my mom....

Way to go with a great Mom & Dad. Looks like you have other wonderful family members.
We are all rescues here and the family has really grown. Although I know Mom is mine and Noah & I are here special babies. Auntie has the three other little fellows. When Mom has to go away our Auntie takes great care of us, and when Mom returns Oh Wow we love it.

I am thrilled to have her. You be good now and enjoy yourself Merlin

  HI Merlin
Welcome to BC. There are alot of very nice birdies here, and I am one of them. My brother Simon isnt so nice sometimes, but other than him the other birdies here are great. Simon is an Umbrella Cockatoo and very mischeivious.Us Macaws are nothing like that. Well here is a vote from one Macaw to another. Have a great day and hope to talk to you again, McCartney

Come visit me, McCartney, Bonnie Molly, Zak, Gabby, SAMMY, Corona, Simon, Clyde Pan, ZaZu & Piper.

  Merlin's friend
I want to be friends with my roommate. His name it Scarlet...he is still waiting to see what happens when I grow up. I still have alot of Baby in me and so he waits and listens. He has taught me some words like "bye-bye" and "HI!". I am very patient and try real hard to let him know we can be friends, he isn't a trusting bird so I and my humans will take our time.

Come visit me, Scarlet & Merlin.
