Hi! My name is Maccardi

I am a Red-Fronted Macaw from Pearland, TX.

My daddy calls me Big Red and my mommy calls me Pretty Boy!

5 years old   M

Red-Fronted Macaw

Almonds are my most favorite treat ever.

My favorite spot is in my mommy's arms as she holds me like a baby. I like to hide in my blue fleece covered boing where no one can see me except for my red had and long tail sticking out. I also like to play in my Get A Grip Climbing Net.

I have been told I can be a little on the noisy side when I want attention but they still love me.

I can chew thru chain!

I love all the fun toys that my mommy gives me to play with and she doesn't care if I destroy them! Anytime my mommy walks in the room I will drop what I am doing for her attention.

I like to tear up my cage paper which drives mommy crazy..

  Hi Maccardi
How are u sweetie? It's such a beautiful day! The sun brightly shining, but on the cool side! But warmer days are definitely in sight...67 Sat & Sun, then low 70s thru Thursday! I'll definitely be able to go outside & drive my car! Sorry we haven't been blogging the last 2 days, mom hasn't been feeling well. Mom goes for her yearly brain MRI tomorrow morning, my toesies are crossed that she hasn't developed too many new lesions!

Mom brought home lots of yummy things from the grocery store, now I need to send her into the kitchen & start cooking! She's making haluski (fried noodles & cabbage) today, & steamed broccoli! Yum...I love any type of pasta & broccoli is my favorite veggie! Mom gives me raw hunks of the stalks & I eat the delicious middles! She brought home a bag of Granny Smith Apples (my favorite apple) & I spied a few cans of mandarin oranges! I don't know why she didn't open them up, she knows they are my favorite! Maybe I'll get some & some sliced apple for dessert today! I hope u had a great day sweetie!
Love & a vote
P.S. Please stop by & visit my new friend Baxter #255655. He's a cute little 'tiel that is brand new to BC! He LOVES receiving comments!

Come visit me, TiaMaria.

  Hi Maccardi
I love making new friends! U can't have too many! Yes I do get lots of mommy & me time, but I do have to share her with 2 dogs & 3 cats! Sadie the wiener dog is always attached to mom & thinks mom only belongs to her...I was here first so I think mom belongs to me! As u can bet, we are very jealous of one another! I don't fly, so I do lots of walking. If I want to be with mom, I'll climb down & look for her. If she's on the couch, I climb on up, or up her leg. She doesn't mind, unless she's wearing shorts! If so, she jumps up & does a crazy little dance & squeals...& I start squealing & singing right along!

It looks like u have a beautiful outdoor aviary! That must be nice! Don't think I would like it much, unless mom stayed in with me! I do love going outside! The weather is almost warm enough to start going out everyday! I have a car that I LOVE to drive! Mom attaches a dog leash & pulls me up & down the sidewalk! I laugh, squeal & holler WHEEEEE! It's my favorite thing to do! Tho, I try to bite at mom when she tries to take me off, so she has to carry me & the car inside & set it down by my cage door! Sometimes I sit on my car for 1/2 hour saying READY, WHEEE, hoping mom will take me back out! There's a pic in my gallery of me driving my car!

I really LOVE giving kisses, & I'm surprised how many people will let me give them kisses! I've been giving kisses to the grandkids since each of them turned 2 or 3! Unlike most birds, I absolutely love kids & love to show off & do my tricks for them! My best trick is playing dead! Mom makes a gun with her left hand & says BANG. I grab her index finger, throw myself backwards & hang by her finger! Always a big hit with kids! Well, sweet dreams to u, my friend, see u tomorrow!
Love & a vote

  Hi Maccardi
How are u sweetie? It's a pleasure to meet u! We share many of the same friends so I wanted to stop by! I'm TiaMaria, my friends call me Tia. I'm a 17 yr old Military Macaw from Greensburg PA. I'm a second home bird & I've been with my mom for a little over 16 happy, wonderful years now! I'm an only birdie, but we also have 2 dogs & 3 cats...but I'm the boss! Mom says that I'm a very sweet, lovable & silly girl (except for some hormonal biting issues this year), & I LOVE giving kisses to everyone brave enough to bring their faces near! I've NEVER bit a face, or never bit anyone other than my mom! U know how it is...we occasionally have to keep our moms in line & have to sometimes remind them who the boss is, hehehe! Well, have a wonderful day sweetie, & I look forward to being friends & hearing all about u!
Hugs & a vote
P.S. I LOVE ur beautiful name, & u are such a handsome guy! I'm so happy to meet another Macaw!

Come visit me, TiaMaria.

  Hey there Maccardi ~
Sure glad you (and the others) got your pictures posted in your Gallery. You three are so good looking!

Mom & I were wondering if you or Slater would be coming with your mom on Saturday. Mom didn't think about your long tail & fitting into mom's car. Hope to see you...if not, your mom will be bringing home a new recipe. Hope we all like it!

Have a fun afternoon ~

How wonderful - congrats to the parronts a little early on their anniversary. The parronts have been married 36 years and have a daughter who will be 33 next month who is married with two children of her own, a daughter 6 and a son who will be 5 the end of June. They also have a son who will be 30 next month. Mom and dad will also get another year older next month. Yup, all May birthdays.
Mom's mom is from Ohio but also Texan by choice. She says she would not want to live anywhere else.
We know what you mean about a single level home. Mom wants that too and when they retire in a few years (probably outside CA) a one story home is on the list.

  Hi Maccardi ~
How's it going? Did you enjoy yourself outside this past weekend? Sure was nice, huh? Heard our moms are trying a new birdie recipe. Are you going to be the lucky bird to come see me? Told mom if there was a way you all would fit in your mom's car & had a place for you all to perch....I would love to see all of you!

Have a fun day ~

  Hey Maccardi
I think I am bigger than you. I'm not much smaller than my sister, Mackenzie, but my red feathers don't grow in size. Mom loves it when they molt because they're so little - I've seen her save a couple, but I act like I don't know what she's doing. She's mom, we just love her, heehee.
How do you like Pearland? Mom's a native Texan and spent 5 years in Houston as a girl. She has a brother in Missouri City and her parents are in College Station.

  Hellooo Maccardi!
Hey, thanks for the details about your aviary. What a neat idea t'use a batting cage as a flight space. 21' of runway sounds awesome! I hope you're out there this weekend, soakin' up some of that Texas sunshine. I've got sunshine here t'day but I've also got chilly Prairie breezes so there'll be no aviary time for me. Bummer but what can ya do. I could use your batting cage aviary's open coverage this time of year; my aviaries got a slated wood roof which blocks the summer sun nicely but keeps the spring time sun from gettin' to me as much as I'd like. Mom asked Dad if he could make it retractable for us but I think the look he gave her meant No, and Are you nuts? Hey, didn't hurt t'ask, right?

And those extra pics you mentioned, I'd love t'see them!

Thanks for the visit. It's great gettin' to chat with ya.

  Hi Maccardi~
How is your day going? I'm having a apples in my play cage right now and watching some silly reality show dad is watching. It's about some bar in Arizona. Dad likes this show but I find it really boring. Mom thinks it's silly too ut there seem to be a whole bunch of silly shows on tv lately.
Do you like to watch tv? I like to watch the movie Rio. I just love it! I've probably watched it about a dozen times!
You enjoy the day! Stomping out a vote and sending hugs your way!

Come visit me, Sugar ~ Thanks for all the AWESOME Memories.

  Hello Maccardi~
Welcome to the BC! I hope you will enjoy it here!

I don't think tearing up cage paper is strange at all! I sometimes do it too! I know it can drive the parronts crazy but sometimes it's just too fun to resist! Do you like to chew up wood too? That is one of my favorite things to do!

Enjoy the day and I hope you will feel free to come by my page anytime. You will always be welcome!

Hugs and a welcome vote ~ Sugar

  Welcome to the BC Family, Maccardi!
Name's RaneBeau. I'm a Harlequin macaw, a friend of Pico's and very happy t'meet you. It's totally awesome that you're joinin' us here on the ol' BC. We have ourselves a riot here, talkin' and gabbin' about life, food, family, food, friends, and every now and then food. I really hope you like it here.

Sometime I wanna ask you about what your aviary's made out of. The wire covering looks like what my mom's been lookin' for for constructing something for the smaller birds in my flock. But first you just get settled in here, make yourself comfortable and THEN we'll talk details.

It's great t'have you here Maccardi!
