We got her from some friends of ours who owns a pet store. She had been brought in by a man who was getting shipped to Iraq and couldn't keep her..

Hi! My name is Saphira

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Haughton, LA.

Only 6 months old, none yet!

7 years old   F

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Baby Carrots and whole peanuts in the shell.

I like to hang out on top of my cage.

I hate when they cover my cage at night, it really scares me, but don't tell anyone.

I Love my mom and dad because they play with me all the time and bring me treats as they walk by me.

My favorite thing to do is look all sweet until a person get's real close up to me and suddenly lunge at them. It is so funny to watch them jump back..

My motto is "If you can't say something good, don't say anything at all!".

  Saphira--A Beautiful Gem
What a doll!!! And Mom always tells me that the prettiest feathers on a Blue 'N' Gold are the ones the color of a saphire. You are a beautiful bird, little one. You have that look of innocence that gives away your age. I recommend you hang on to it as long as possible. (And USE it!) I'm afraid of the dark, too. So Mom doesn't cover my cage. And I even have a nite lite! If I'm sleepy and it's not time for Mom and Dad to go to bed, I just tuck my head under my wing and it works just great. Don't worry about it kiddo. You and your mom will figure out what works best for you. Just stopped by to introduce myself and leave you a "Hello" vote. You and your new sister have fun with your new family, and take good care.

  Hotshot here......
Hi Saphira.....
I'm sor sorry you get scared when your cage gets covered, but trust me...you will get used to it....I'm a bit older...like 14 yrs....lol so I like to go to bed a bit earlier, especially since my mom and dad get up so early....by 8 p.m. or so...I'm getting sleeping...when the yawning hints dont seem to work, I just have to tell them all..."Goodnight" mom laughs at me.....but it works.....she covers 3/4 of my cage, shuts the lights for me and tells me..ok....5 more minutes..let me get through here......when she finally covers my whole cage ....I tell her......good night.....she tells me night....I love you......and were good till the morning, when i hear her trying to be soo quiet so she doesnt wake me up, I chuckle and tell her....good morning.........so ..dont be afraid little one...its gonna all come together.....
stay in touch...
mom and hotshot...

Come visit me, Hotshot.

  Welcome, from Gizmo
Hi Saphira. Welcome to the group! Sorry to hear you get scared when they cover your cage. My mom scared me to death tonight...she put shredded carrots in my bowl and I had no idea what they were! I freaked out and wouldn't go anywhere near that side of the cage. I like my baby carrots whole, thank you!! LOL!! Here's a vote for you. Stop by and visit us too. Gizmo.

Come visit me, Maui, Kona, Gizmo & Gabby.
