Hi! My name is Maizie

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Gulfport, MS.

Maizie Day, Mommy's Little Lovebug

16 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Nuts, crackers and chicken bones.

My daddy built me a high perch on top of my cage out of PVC piping. I love being up there.

I am afraid of taking a shower.

My mommy makes me a big, healthy breakfast every morning. After I eat she spends about 30 minutes playing with me and giving me lots of love. She has an office in the house, but she keeps her computer in the den where I am so she can spend time with me during the day.

I like to swing upside down from a rope..

You've never been loved until you've been loved by a parrot..

  Hi Maizie
Being an Amazon, I can't imagine life without showers, just take it slow, maybe a real fine mister to start with and work your way up to a full blown shower with Mommy.
I love your motto, you have to earn a parrots love but once you do its magical.

Come visit me, Eddie, Ninja, Harley and Daisy, Indiana, Ruby, Baxter & Chester.

  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.

  Hello Pretty Maizie!
MY BABY BROTHER, AN AFRICAN GREY, / NEEDS A VOTE FROM HIS FRIENDS EVERYDAY/ TO HELP HIM WIN A WONDERFUL CAGE,/ THAT WOULD LAST HIM FOR YEARS UNTIL RIPE OLD AGE. Poirot my brother has entered a limerick in the poetry contest, located on the home page. He is the first bird on the second page, ( African Grey lying on a cocktail glass.) You can read the limerick on his page. If you like his limerick will you vote for it? I am voting for you. Many thanks, Pringle

  Shower Tips:
To: Maizie Mom - I haven't found out the "best" solution to the showers yet. I'm still slowly trying out different ways. I've been told try warm water - Others only like cold water. Some like to bathe in wet leaves - Some just give them a bowl. Some an actual shower - Others running sink water. There's a forum you can log into under the "community" section that has a lot of great advice about differet stuff. I know they have the shower topic there, including step by slow step how to get 'em to actually shower in the shower. Keep trying, I'll keep you updated on if I find anything Kiera seems to like best.

Come visit me, Kiera.

  Here’s a vote for you and a birdie poem:

I love birds, I love them so,
Life without them I’ll never know.
Each day starts with a meeting,
Chirps and whistles it’s their own special greeting.
Fresh fruits and veggies to wash and chop,
Served with warm birdie bread to fill each crop.
Toys of wood, leather and bells,
Makes for fun with loud squawking yells.
Feathers and pellets all over my floor,
Does not deter me from loving them more.
As the sun fades we share kisses and scritches,
Then it’s off to each cage with sweet dream wishes.

If you enjoyed that, please stop by the Bird Contest section on this website and give us your vote in the poetry contest – we are on page 4! Mom would like to add another member to our flock and by winning a new cage, this would encourage Daddy to let her do so!

Come visit me, Riley, Tinkerbell, Tiki & Sayde Rose.

Hi there Maizie. My name's Kiera; I'm a Harlequin Macaw. My mom wonders how a big bird like me can be scared of anything but... I'm not so sure about this "shower time" thing either. Why spend so much time getting wet when you're gonna dry off again anyway? Hum... Chicken Bones? Mom's never let me try those yet; I wonder if I can convince her. Well, hope you're having better weather than us up in PA!

Come visit me, Kiera.

  Welcome to Bird Channel!
Hi Maizie, I am a B&G macaw just like you. My name is Baby. I don't like to take a shower, yuck hate it. My Mom makes me breakfast and dinner everyday, isn't it nice to know our Mom's love us so much they cook for us! Mom makes me noddles and peas and I love that. I shell the peas and then Mom calls me a Silly Bird and then I call her a Silly Bird. We like to have fun! Come see me Soon, Baby

Come visit me, Mango, Kenya, Baby, Blaze & Dylan.
