Red-Fronted Macaw from League City, TX

Create/Edit Your Own Avatar

We went to our favorite bird store (Parrots Cove) to buy Bluebell some new toys and play gym and fell instantly in love with her. She is a Red Fronted Macaw and they are considered rare. Andrea at Parrots Cove hated to part with her and after a night to sleep on it we called the next day and brought her home. She has to be the most loving bird I have ever seen.. Awards

Hi! My name is Skittles

I am a Red-Fronted Macaw from League City, TX.


10 years old   F

Red-Fronted Macaw


In my food bowl and on my mommy snuggling.

She scratches my head and snuggles a lot. She tolerates me being hard headed.

I scream until I hear my sister Bluebell answer me. I like to get the party started!.

You scream, I scream, we all scream when I scream!.

  Hello Skittles, You are beautiful.

My name is Maccardi and I am a Red Fronted Macaw too just like you!!!!! And.... we are neighbors!

I live in Pearland with my flockmates. There's Slater (Congo African Grey), Chili Pepper (Double Yellow Head Amazon and my human flock mom, dad and their two grown daughters. Mom loves making new friends and especially likes meeting other parrot people. She enjoys getting together with her other parrot friends to make toys or cook yummy parrot food recipes.

So happy to meet you. Hope we can be friends!

Come visit me, Chili Pepper, Slater & Maccardi.

My mom is President of a Houston Bird Club, HAA. She would love for you to join. She is working hard to bring the club back to life. Looks like you two have fun together. Today, I went after Cosmo our U2, I go him off the cage and Mom went to help him and he bit mom badly, so Mom has us separated. I spent the day with Bart and Charlie and sharing Kathy. Oh well that is life with a large flock. I voted for you two, too.

  Hi Skittles from Kras.
You are a very beautiful bird, don’t worry about the “hard headed” part, that’s just a Macaw thing, tell your Mom if she wants to see real stubbornness try hanging out with a Scarlet, especially one that has been miss-treated in the past.
I know what you mean about those "yucky" green pellets, I don’t like them either, all of mine end up on the floor I push my food dish up against the side of my cage and throw all green pellets out, they are so yucky I don’t even like them in the bottom of my cage. Dad says he’d pay extra to be able to buy food without the green pellets.

Come visit me, Roxy, Ricky & Krasniy.

I'm glad I found a fellow bird who enjoys showers! I love the water spraying, I just started to sing and coo. I don't get out until the water is turned off and Dad is out drying off. Then I know it's time for me too. Thanks for welcoming me so warmly!

Hey Skittles I have another friend on here with the same name but I can keep up my name is Knuckles and my mommy loves your motto. We have alot in common too. Green pellets...PUTOOIE...I hate them. I only eat them when mommy forces me too she will leave them in the bowl so I dont waste food I try to sneak and eat them when she isnt looking so they will go away but they dont so she just replaces them but I dont like them.

You are very pretty my mommies saw a parrot exactly like you at the bird show last weekend beeeeuutiful just like you. My momma says I am super gentle and sweet I mind my manners say please and thank you so we have that in common too Momma says the books say I should be more shy and skittish but I am anything but.

It is so nice to meet you hope we can be friends...Birdie beak kisses...

Come visit me, Princess Knuckles at your service & Willi and Wonka, Tweety and Minnie are our chicks..

Howdy, Thanks for your visit a few days ago. Dad just got back from being out of town and got the computer up for me. Yep. I do go through lots of toys. Dad goes to the hardware store every week to get the wood scraps to make us toys. I especially love fresh pine 2X4's. Dad says I am a toothpick factory. He won't give me those so called indestructable plastic toys cause I destroy them too but I jost love plastic. Especially Coca-Cola bottle tops. I guess it's just the red color cause Dad rinces them out before he gives them to me. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and my vote for you today. Stop by and see my buddy Amber. She is a Macaw like us. C-ya next time,

Come visit me, Amber, Casper, Hannibal & Autumn.

  Hi from Frisco!
Hi Skittles! I'm happy to see another RFM here (and I'm happy to get another vote!). Tell your mom that we are as cuddly as cockatoos! When we go all limp on them it's known as the 'red front melt'.

Does you mom know that there are only about 500 of us left in the wild, in Bolivia?

Here's my favorite websites:... and

Just stopped by and had to vote for you. You are the most beautiful macaw I've ever seen--in fact I've never seen one like you! I'm BF Amazon from way up in Ohio!

  Hi Skittles!
Thanks for visiting me! My mama says I am really cuddley and sweet too! Do you think that is just what our species is like? Where in Texas is Parrot's Cove? We live in CA, but my mom's best friend lives in Cleburne south of Dallas/Ft Worth area. She is planning a trip out there soon. I hope we get to go too. Mom wants to take the trailer so we can :)
Anyway it is nice to meet another RF! We ARE special aren't we!!!

Skits ~ mom said no harm taken on the cat comment. I think she just wanted to let your mom know she was a good bird owner. No, she's not a part of any bird club though she wish she was. Is your mom?

  Hi Skittles. You look just like the red-front who used to be one of my many friends at the bird habitat where Mom and I met. Can you possibly be the same bird? We actually had 2 red-fronts there (Skittles and Oliver). When they decided to close the habitat, Mom lost track of where everyone else went. Here's a vote for you and I agree, there definately should be a red-front macaw category!

Come visit me, Crackers.

Hey Skits ~ mom wanted to let you know that she knows all about the bad bugs in a cat's mouth. She won't let the cat kiss me & I can't put my tongue on him. Moses loves me alot & I love him. But Mom is close by when we're that close. We have lived together for close to five years. Now the other cats, they're a whole different ballgame. :-) Mom would never let anything happen to me. Mom also said she agrees with you about Andrea - she's a great lady! If there comes a day and Mom would get another bird, it would be from Andrea.

Hi Skittles - from one Texan to another - welcome to Bird Channel! In fact, Parrots Cove, which is close to home, is one of my mom's favorite places to buy toys for me. I'm not only hard headed like you, but we have the same name too! Here's a vote for my new friend ~ I'm going to go visit your sister now.
