Hahn's Macaw from Campbell, CA

For two years I had been searching for the perfect bird. After lots of research, I visited breeder after breeder and couldn't find one that I was comfortable with. Everything else was a waiting game while I continued my search. I had thought that I wanted a Galah until I went to a pet store and found a pair of Hahn's Macaws. While I was reluctant to buy from a pet store, one of the birds was really sweet and won my heart. When I went back to the store to pick him up, the sales rep had sold him and hour before I walked through the door unaware of the "hold" sticker in the backroom. Heartbroken, I left the store convinced that I would never find the perfect bird for me. A month later I recieved an e-mail from a breeder in Sacramento that told me that she had three baby Hahn's macaws (one male and two females) that were ready to go to a good home and informed me that she would be in town for a wedding the following weekend if I wanted to see them. I jumped at the oppertunity. Based on previous experience I had anticipated getting a male bird, but I understood that like people, birds have individually unique personalities. The first female was extreamly shy and wouldn't let me get near her, the male bit my hand so hard he broke the skin. Then Playa walked up to me bright eyed and climed up my arm, onto my shoulder, and onto my head. She fell asleep in the crocet hat I was wearing and when I tried to remove her from my head she cooed at me and nuzzled deeper into the hat. From that moment on we were inseparable..

Hi! My name is Playa

I am a Hahn's Macaw from Campbell, CA.

Playa (pronounced Ply-ya) is spanish for the word beach. Sometimes I'm called Bundle because I'm everyone's bundle of love.

8 years old   F

Hahn's Macaw

apple, oatmeal, banana nut bread, whole wheat pasta, eggs, chicken, whatever mom's eating.

On top of mom's head

when mom gives me treats and then gives the dog treats. Those treats should be all for ME!!!

What don't I love?

Singing along with a song in the car. Hopping into the shower uninvited. Interupting conversations. Pretending to read with mom while I find a way to tear the pages to shreads.Mocking the baby's cry..

She was not a refined girl, she was not an unrefined girl...She was the type of girl that would keep a parrot.

  Hi Playa!
Thank you!
Oh that sounds like fun! I got to take a shower with my mom the other day, and that was really fun! Better than taking a bath in my water dish!

Another cp~

I've been talking a lot whenever mommy holds me. I mumble stuff that she can't understand.:P Mom thinks it's cute!

Mom got bottom braces yesterday. She said they didn't hurt while getting them, but now her mouth hurts really bad. My poor mama. I like them, but mom said that's because I like shiny things.

It's true, I do LOVE shiny things!!! :D

Hugs, Peatree

  Hi Playa
so many of you have asked when JABBER will get her very own page. Now a little history of the flock. Squak came to BC in December of 08, and it took the old guy almost three years before Screech made it. I followed just a short time later. The old guy is slowing down, and we are holding off on a page for Jabber until I make the 10K club. It's just getting to be too much for pops to do all the blogs for the three of us, and we plan on a little break before she shows her pretty face. It should be, I would guess in 3-4 months. But in the mean time, we will give you all updates on her progress. Tweet.

Come visit me, Tweet & Squak.

I told ONE PERSON about the new kids nme and sex, and someone had the nerver to BRIBE Uncle Chuck with a case of Jack Daniels for the information. I have to send pops out shopping for a roll of duck Tape. Personally, he should have held out for two cases. BOY is he ever easy. hee hee. Tweet

  Hi Playa!
A Peatree cp~

I got to go outside on Saturday and Sunday! Mom put me in the spare keet cage, and then I sat in the sun while she was swimming. I have pics posted in my gallery.:)

Mom finally took the nesting box out of the parakeet cage. Weasley and Jacob were ignoring it and Bella and Hermione were playing in it with the nesting stuff and making a mess. Yay! That means there will be no annoying babies!

Hugs,
Peatree

BREAKING BIRD SHOW NEWS

Well, all I can sy it that the trip to the bird show was
a huge success.

We got three new types of treats, and the old guy bough
4 bages of pieces and part to fix some of our old toys just like new. Also a large bag of peanuts for the BIG BEAK cause those are a favorite. And some dried fruit, that we all like to chew on.

So all things considered, I guess you could say we all are pretty with the outcome. The bad news is that there's not another show until July 15th. So it's gonna be a long six weeks until the next one. But we can wait, knowing that the goodies will be a coming.

OH OH OH, mom even bought a few things for Pin feathers cage so we can get it all set up for when IT gets here. I tell ya, that kid is gonna be spoiled in no time. Even got a travel cage just for him, in case we all have to make a break from any bad weather.

  Hi Playa CoCo Puff stopping off for a Visit
I think you should get a Senegal,tehee. We have the personality of an Amazon, I can talk a bit and very playful, I love to fight with my toys. There's not a toy made I don't enjoy. My favorite place to hang out is a small wooden bucket full of foot toys. I throw them on the floor for Mom to pick up. I have a big Too brother and we get along really well, I just let out a scream for Mom if he tries to bother me.. I bit his tow a few times so he's steers clear of me..We've even had a few kissie sessions..I actually love the big lug..Senegals will eat anything not nailed down, and we train very well. I go to bed at 7 and get up at 7. I need all the sleep I can get as I play hard, even take a nap in the afternoon..We are in the Meyers family tho and either one would be good, I think we Sennies just have a bit more attitude, which makes us more fun..Gotta go but do stop by again and visit...Love CoCoPuff

sometimes girsl can be a bit nippy,which girl isn't hehehe.but Padme is not nippy at all and just a sweetheart and she gts along with the other ones very well.she taklks in a very sweet cute babyvoice and mimics alot what our other birds are saying.but you need to make alot of research,they need specialy food.."pretty bird"has special eclectus pellets,which are very good and they need everyday fruits and veggies.i'll look for some sides were you can go and read about ekki's,but every question you have,go ahead and ask us,we will be happy to answer them.then you need to decide if you wanna a male or female,males more cuddlier i heard,then girls.but it must be not true and ekkies more on the quietside,so there isn't much screaming normaly,hehehe,but between me and you,Padme can be scream too,i thnk she picked it up from the other ones,but it isn't to bad and its just once in awhile.so gotta go.Jango

Oh wow, was I happy to see a note from you; glad to know all is well! Bummer that techno-class had to be put on hold. I wish I could loan you my computer... it's a Mac. Sounds like mom's summer's going to be a busy one what with summer classes. She's pressin' towards that graduation goal, isn't she!! Yeah, mom!! Speaking of pressing on, I'm sorry that Treasure Chest is not cooperating with you. I assure you, I'm no genius... I just work those keys till they give up the prize. (Genius would be if I could lock the chest back up after opening it!!!! That's not likely to happen.) You're mom's such a sweetie, ain't she, helping you keep up your confidence in yourself. You'll get it someday, Playa, I'm sure of it. At least you're trying... the other Grey at my house won't even touch the puzzletoy... it hangs in her cage and gathers dust as does the almond or cracker on the inside! Eventually I can't stand it anymore and just have to sneak into that cage and open the chest myself. Most of the time I don't even eat the morsel (too stale!)... I just toss it to the dog 'cause I'm the heck not gonna leave it for that lazy fat bird!! Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes... I did have a very nice day with the gal who lovingly mothers me. Hugs to you, Playa. K *v*
