Hahn's Macaw from San Pedro, CA

Mommy's sole, human child got her driver's permit and Mommy felt bereft. She walked into a pet store filled with birds, and had an "aha" moment, and decided then and there to fill the empty nest in a literal way. She researched birds and decided on Hahn's because of our strong verbal capacity, our manageable size, and playful nature; it was when she read that we like to be tickled on our tummies that closed the deal--and I really do enjoy playing "tickle toes" while lying on her tummy, just giggling and gently putting her fingers in my mouth all the while. I came from a local breeder, and was delivered to my home at 3-months of age, newly weaned..

Hi! My name is Siegfried

I am a Hahn's Macaw from San Pedro, CA.

Siggy (I was named after the hero in Wagner's opera series known as, "The Ring Cycle"). My fam also calls me "Terror Bird," like the dinoaur bird they discovered, when I get real cranky.

10 years old   M

Hahn's Macaw

potato, rice, sugar snap peas, mango, ice pop's, scrambled egg, and occasionally diet soda from the glass, of course. I will also try anything that Mommy is eating!

Under the bedsheet playing peek-a-boo, and nestled under Mom's chin, sleeping on her chest.

People getting too close to MY "Mom." I only let Mom's human partner (husband) near, and sometimes not even him. But you know what I hate most of all? I hate that stupid telephone that takes MY spot on Mommy's shoulder. I try to make lots of noise whenever she picks it up so she'll get rid of it fast--ooh, I hate that stupid thing!

She adores me, spends lots of time with me doing fun, loving things, and if I could just live on her shoulder 24/7, my life would be perfect!

I say, "mwah" and blow kisses, whisper "yummy" when I like something I taste, but I never say "yummy" out loud (because I learned it by my Mommy whispering it to me when I was a baby and was eating something tasty whilst sitting on her shoulder!). I repeat "wanna cuddle?" over and over till Mommy gets me out of my cage in the morning. I imitate the dogs' whining sounds when my Mommy walks away from me, and I like to make the sound of crows sometimes, too. I do think my Mommy's real name is "Peek-a Boo," so I say it over and over when she comes home from work, getting louder and more insistent the longer it takes for her to come and greet me properly. I also play peek-a-boo under almost anything. And I bob and cluck to music on TV while perching on Mom's finger, and I laugh along with the laugh-tracks on TV. I have one gripe about TV though. I really hate that annoying "double jeopardy" sound, so I squawk real loud whenever it comes on. I really enjoy ringing my large bell at dawn every day to wake up my humans. And, I love to sing the "coo" part of "coo-koo" and wait for Mommy to sing "koo" back to me. I know she's really paying attention to me that way. I fly around indoors and "step-up" to Mommy's shoulder to land. I know how to poop when Mommy holds me over the newspaper bin or the toilet--she seems to really like it when I do this for some strange reason. And I so love to purr when cuddling under Mom's chin in the early morning while she drinks her coffee--I let her know I want to have a taste by making a human sipping and swallowing sound--I just love coffee--it's probably because of my South American roots!.

"I am the son that Mommy never had," and even though my human sister resents me sometimes, I don't really think she'll bury me with Mommy "dead or alive" like she says she will, do you?.

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Good Morning, St. Patrick here, we made it through the tornado watches and warnings last night and now it is cold and snow is on the way, they say.. Hope you are warm and happy. I laid down the BOTW crown for Queen Daisy and I am ready to present to you the friends that inspired my Limerick for Today, Angel & Dusty (Meyers parrots from Derry, NH. ) LIMERICK OF THE DAY: ............. ............. ....Their aptitude for fun is contagious. ............. ......................... Their behavior can be quite outrageous. ..... ............. ............... Dusty coos, "Come on, Hon," ............. ............. ............. ........."Angel, let's have some fun!" ............. .................... Then they dive bomb the little finch cages! ... ..... .. Please remember to stop by my flockmates too. Love and hugs galore...Patrick. .....PS......We have been without electricity all morning. About 8:30 am the wind blew a tree down onto the power lines

Come visit me, St. Patrick D'bird loves Ruby Sue, Lonnie, Slate and Mica, Fortune & Cotton Ball "I'm Tiki's Girl".

  Good morning Siegfried!
Flash and I wanted to stop by and say Happy Superbowl Sunday! We're having a big human party here today. Mommy doesn't like to take me out when there's a whole lot of people at the house because I get overstimulated and start biting. And I hate it when people I don't know stick their fingers at me to pet me...especially when I just preened my feathers. Geez. Who do they think they are?! Well, I hope you have a grand time watching those big fat humans run around and jump on each other. Silly people. Peckin' the votie button off your page on my way out! See you soon! ~Tanga

Come visit me, Flash & Tanga.

  Hello from Brett
Hey thanks for coming to visit me. My plucking is getting better, but I had been doing it for about eight years before my new mom got me. She took me to the vet and did all the blood work and everything was good. I tend to chew the most during the spring/summer months. The vet thinks it's due to my male hormones... The problem is in my last home I was put in with a girl and she bit the end of one of my toes off!! How do you like that? So Mom is try different things to not encourage the behavior. I'm slowly getting better, but it's just such a hard habbit to break!

Brett~

Ps: Pippin says hello, and yes he does not care for the computer either, but mom keeps him away from the keys :)

Come visit me, Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot, Pippin & Ollie (the bird formerly known as Harry).

  Hello from Pippin
Hey there Siggy, welcome to the channel. You and me sound very much alike. I love playing tummy tickle. I would prefer to be on mom 24/7 if she allowed it, and I don't like her talking on the phone. I also despise the remote...let's just say it's missing a few buttons. My big brother Ollie came from a rescue that had the same kind of macaw as you. She was a little spit fire! Mom just loved her, but she was there to pick up Ollie and as much as she would love to have the Hahn's, she knows that with me and Ollie she just wouldn't have the time. It's good to see you have a loving home! Here is a vote for you, fly by and visit me and Ollie any time.

Pippin~

  Hi Siegfried
You're a handsome bird. I don't know if this will help much but here's what I do to change the pic: Log into your account, find the list of bird profiles at the bottom of your account summary, click "edit" by the profile you want to edit. Then, by the picture click "Browse". Find the photo you want, double click it and there will be text in the box by the browse button now. Next click the line below the picture that says "Click here to edit or add more photos of your bird". Ignore the new page that comes up and click save at the bottom of the editing page. Through this all the picture on the editing page will look the same, but after you click save, view your bird's profile and the picture should have changed. I hope this helps.

Come visit me, Pip & Jack.
