My first owners raised me from a baby, but after 22 years they got a divorce and they didn't want me anymore. They were so mad at each other they were just going to release me outside. So someone in their family contacted Sapphyre at Borrowed Rainbow Aviary and now I live with her and I am very happy now. I get to stay out of my cage and play with her..

Hi! My name is Pepper

I am a Military Macaw from Flint, MI.

I am just called Pepper. My Mama is a
Certified Avian Specialist and she has this 6th sense if there is something medically wrong with Parrots.

No long ago she rushed me to the Vet because she felt there was something seriously wrong with me. I know I was hiding my illness, but she knew I was.
My Avian Vet said I was very sick and if my Mama didnt do what the Vet told her, then I would die in a few months. I was only given a 50/50 chance of surviving. But Sapphyre says I am getting better now because she can feel it. And People make the mistake of thinking I am just a Military Macaw, but actually I am a Buffon's Macaw aka Grand Military Macaw. My species is now been put on the endangered list. There are not many of us left any more.

Some people were giving my mama a hard time because I am a rescue and they dont think that when I get healthy that I should be bred to help keep the species alive. So I guess one day I will be the last of my kind if I am not allowed to have a family.


29 years old   F

Military Macaw

I love all kinds of fruits

I get a shower everyday

I don't like to stay in my cage

She give me kisses and tells me she loves me.

I love to hide under towels.

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi Pepper, Our Mommy knows of a hybrid Baffoons/Military Macaw in a sanctuary in Mo. She wants to adopt her badly. She was given to a small zoo. They only put her on exhibit, but she was a companion bird. She plucked herself badly because the keepers thought her mean and unfriendly. They did not know that she was in the wrong environment. She is getting better all the time and should be adopted soon. Someone will be very lucky to get her. We hope that you continue to improve and are able to breed. It would be such a shame for you not to have babes. v4u

  A Macaw with a Bow, Doin' a Bow!
What talent! What panache!! What in the world?! What bird in its right mind hangs out in the shower every day?!! I have an extremely difficult time with getting wet, myself. But it's really easy to say "Welcome!" to such a cool Macaw. Must have been just that easy for your new mom too. What a tremendous mistake for your first owners to even THINK of abusing you with a threat like that. Their loss is our gain! Looking forward to making your acquaintance. Here's a 'Howdy Do" vote for you. -<`)-
