I saw an ad for a Macaw and plexyglass cage on line for $600. I couldn't believe it.
To make a long story short. After I saw her photo, it was love at first sight I drove 75 mile to get her.
Would you believe that the reason her former owner was selling her was because she needed money for a car payment. I cried the entire way home, and promised Maxie that I would love her forever, no matter what. I would never give her away. She was "a nasty bird" and bird people told me that she would only be good as a breeder. I gave her all the love and patience that I had; and little by little she's become my friend.
I've been able to train her to do a few tricks. She is very curious and when she hears a big noice, she will ask..."WHAT HAPPENED?"
I always take the time to ell her, or show her.
I love her so very very much, and I know that she loves me.

  Maxie Macaw~
Rainbow here. I'm a macaw myself- a Harlequin. Might you be a Catalina or a Harlequin yourself? You're beautiful, I know that much! Your "How We Met" story is a sad but touching one- sad in that you were traded out for a crumby car payment (I think the love of a bird will take a human farther than any vehicle ever would) and touching because you found a human who wants to love and care for you no matter what else happens in life.
I've been inspired to meet you today because I'm on a mission; there's a Blue and Gold macaw that I would love to see win that Bird of the Week award. Bobbi is her name. It's been a long while since a MACAW was the winner of that coveted award so I thought if I could round up lots of MACAW support for this blue and gold friend of mine, then surely there'd be a big beak on the BC Home Page come next Monday morning. You can find Bobbi's page by either flying to my page and clicking on Bobbi's avatar in my aviary or using her page number (109883) to get to her where you can use YOUR big beautiful beak to vote for her. I'd bet a foot full of pistachios that she'd be thrilled to meet a beautiful bird like yourself. I know I am! R ('>

  Hello from Starburst!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the vote. YEP! I'm sure I'm a Catalina. My mommy and daddy have my parents in another room. My mommy bird is a B&G, like yours. But my daddy bird is a Scarlet, where yours is a Green Wing. We do look a lot alike. The only difference is that you are probably bigger than me. My Daddy just bought me this really neat new toy. It is made with measuring cups and chain. Each chain has a cup hooked to each end and the 2 chains are run through a pvc 4-way splitter. On the top of each chain, just above the cup are 2 beads, 1 red and 1 blue. Then there are some more beads at the top of the toy where it gets hung by. I LOVE this toy. It makes a lot of noise. Mommy says it reminds her of toddlers playing with pots and pans. Hehehe! Here is a vote for you. I have to go for now. C ya later!

  Hello Maxie
What a beautiful bird. You are a gorgeous bird. We also have an ex breeder bird in our flock and she is so much happier now. Thanks for visiting us and leaving a vote for our newest member Kiwi. My owner would love to help you out with putting more pictures up but she has only put one picture per bird up so far but she knows there is a way to put more up and we sure can tell why your owner would love to put more pics up of you.She will try to figure it out when she has more time but maybe she can find someone else to help. She will check back when and if she can figure it out. We will leave you a vote because you are such a beautiful bird and deserves a vote.

Come visit me, Kiwi, Buddy, Mikey, Kimidori, Grace, Peeps, Shiori, Ziggie, Bella, Jasper & Chloe.

  Hello again
Don't worry, you will find lots of love here. This site is full of true bird lovers. Most important is that your Mom loves you very much. My Mom wishes that every bird was happy. She would like to adopt every single parrot that needs a home, but she can't now because we live in a small apartment. If you feel even a little bit lonely just fly by to say hello.
Hugs
MAKI

  Hi Maxie
Welcome to the BC. Read your story and really do feel for the person who had to sell you but your story has a happy ending and your being with a loving family is the most important thing. You are not only coming aroung but with infinite patience on your owners part will become even friendlier, more talkative and bring a ton of joy to the household. Must say you are a breathtaking bird. You have my vote. Stop by and visit me as I am a mini mccaw.

Hugs,


Sweet Pea
