Dante came with Lucy. Their former human companion could no longer provide for them due to unfortunate circumstances. They have been with us for just two months now. We adore them!. Awards

Hi! My name is Dante

I am a Severe Macaw from Kalamazoo, MI.

Not yet!

18 years old   M

Severe Macaw

Dante loves nuts,fruit, Nutriberries,fr- uit and vegetable juice, popcorn. We are still discovering his preferences.

My wife. He adores my wife and tolerates me.

"All objects are to be feared." He allows petting only after he taps a person's hand first. He hates noise.

"My female human companion is SO wonderful; just like the lady who was my previous human friend. She plays games with me, sings with me, cuddles with me and shares her popcorn with me. In return, I protect her from that human male that she seems to like. She is mine; all mine." (Wings out and feathers fluffed out.)

Dante is very slow to accept new people. He has many phobias: brooms,paper towels,phones,r- emote controls,paper,- etc. He only says "Hello" the first thing in the morning but not later. He loves to watch birds at the bird feeder and says, "What's that?" when he sees them..

  Flitzer Hello
Happy Monday, Dante.
What makes you so "severe"-- can you try to be more friendly?

Sunday, Daddy got me in my travel cage and we went to visit friends.

I was very good not flying into Christmas decorations or breaking anything, staying mostly on my Dad's back and shoulders.
It is really great hearing people say how pretty I am.
~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  It's a Flitzer Saturday
Hey, Dante -
Weekend is here! Dad thinks he's going to play Christmas Music and write Christmas Cards.
I have other ideas -I will need to distract him, because less than 100% attention to 'The Bird' is unacceptable. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Wednesday love from Flitzer
Dad had a busy day of laundry, shopping and errands.
I made sure we got sufficient cuddle-time as well as feisty play time.
I love my Daddy, but don't understand when he doesn't pay 100% attention to me ALL THE TIME. ~Wings Up~

Come visit me, Flitzer.

  Hi Dante
I'm Seymour, a Hahn's Macaw. I was adopted from another family too when I was 6, and now I'm 18! I'm kinda like you....I have my ways, and I won't chang'em. Like I MUST be covered up at 7pm...or 5pm when the time changes back. I MUST have my Apple Jacks in a certain bowl in the morning, so I can dunk them in my water bowl and eat them nice and proper...if not I will squawk and squawk until it's done correctly.
It was nice meeting you. Come visit me and my friend Adoff, the African Grey. My family adopted him too when he was 1 1/2.

Come visit me, Adoff & Seymour.
