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!

20 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..

Unlike you, I LOVE noise & chaos...and make quite a lot of both! Please feel free to visit me anytime, I LOVE making new birdie friends!

Hey, Dante --

Monday Monday - Can't Trust That Day.
Daddy's car is giving him trouble - indicators flashing, -he just had it fixed-up and inspected 2 weeks ago. Now a tire keeps going flat as well - ugh - cars - why don't humans just fly like us birds!

  Flitzer on a restful Sunday
Hi, Dante!

We rested early Saturday so we didn't lose any sleep with the time change.
Not sure what's up for today - Dad is taking a friend to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, famous for it's Contempoary Art.
We will probably have a Matinee at the castle.
Any film suggestions? Have a great day.

Love to Cookie and Ha-Ho

  Flitzer's Friday Flitterings
Hi, Dante -
The Theatrical Experience.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
My Dad prefers to watch films in the movie theater. He goes sometimes once a week.
Often older Classic Films, or Foreign Films or Independent Films. He does see more current releases, but is very selective with those.
Dad believes in the Theatrical Experience. He does not pay for cable TV or dish, and takes that entertainment money and spends it at the movies.
There is something special in the communal experience of an audience in the dark - laughing at something funny, or holding its collective breath in suspense. It is a very special shared experience you can't get at home watching a DVD.
Being enveloped in the huge picture, the expanse of sound.
The smell of freshly popped popcorn is a special treat. Dad says a movie isn't the same without a nice bag of popcorn in his lap.
I like to share special movies at home with Dad and sometimes his friends as well. Often what we see at home are films Dad fell in love with At The Movies.

Come visit me, Mario Adler & Flitzer.

Hello from the Endless Winter of Buffalo, NY. Usually we'll have a storm then it melts away, then another....
This year the temperatures are staying frigid so the snowdrifts are just drifting higher and higher. It's getting hard to see beyond the walls of white.

  Snow Snow, Go Away - Flitzer
Hey, Dante!

Thursday was yet another Slippery-snowy day in Buffalo. Dad cancelled evening plans - just didn't want to bother with it all last night - besides, it is nicer for me when he stays home.
We're getting psyched for our BirdChannel campaign - I hope you have as much fun visiting us in February as we will have. Where there's Flitzer, there's always a Party! ~Wings Up~

  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.

  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, Mario Adler & 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~

  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.
