While my husband and I were in the process of bonding with our other bird, the pet store got Jackson--he was just hatched and didn't even have feathers yet! Because V was very bonded with me and basically hated my husband, my husband asked the nursury staff if he could help with Jackson (he had always dreamed of owning an Green Wing). For the next 2 months, Chris played with Jax everyday, forming a VERY close bond with him. Then it came time to take V home and Chris was really sad that he wouldn't be in to visit Jax anymore. Well, he went anyway. One day, we both went in for a visit and there was someone else there playing with Jackson and Chris overheard someone say that this person wanted to adopt him. My husband burst into tears!! The store owner, knowing the bond between these two, had devised a way for us to get him. He was quite expensive and we couldn't afford him. So, he put the deposit down for us ($1.00 when it should have been 20%) and gave us until he was weaned to pay the rest, which happened to be about 4 months. The day we made the final payment was the day Jackson refused his "formula" for the first time so he was ready to go home. It was like he knew.. Awards

Hi! My name is Jackson

I am a Green-Winged Macaw from Champaign, IL.

Jax & Jaxy

11 years old   M

Green-Winged Macaw

Chicken bones and walnuts. He'll do a little dance as you're approaching him with these.

His swing in his cage and his play stand in the living room. When dad is home, he's the favorite spot!

Loud noises

Playing airplane and snuggling really close.

Jax is still a baby, so he spends a lot of time puffing up his feather, nodding his head and honking for attention. Sometimes he'll throw a wing out for good measure..

I'm the baby, come love on me!.

  Hello Jackson!
Oh my goodness, your story is so sweet. You are so lucky to have a daddy who loves animals so much. Mommy almost started crying herself when she read it. Just wanted to say hello and welcome to a fellow macaw! You are a marvelous looking bird!

Come visit me, Skittles & Bluebell.

  Hi Jackson
Welcome to the club. That was one of the sweetest "How we met" stories that we have read. I bet you have your dad wrapped around you little toes. Albert is that way with our dad, he can get away with anything. Here's a vote for you, cause you are just so handsome. Hope you stop by and visit us sometime. Have a good night.

Come visit me, Jasper & Albert.
