Hi! My name is Rio

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from exmore, VA.

Pookers

13 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Nuts

My swing that hangs from the ceiling, my manzanita tree, and the arm of my Mommie's chair.

I do not like strangers and I remind my Mommie with a nice little bite

She buys me lots of toys, She gave me my own room with lots of space to play, and she loves me more than her boyfriend and he knows it :)

I want to throw up on my Mommie but she tells me no and it's gross. She said she can get her own food..

Joy is owning a Blue and Gold Macaw!!.

  Hi from Fortune ,St. Patrick D'bird and Lonnie
Hi Rio, Fortune here, Last night the tornado sirens about drove us crazy. One was on the ground headed our way but it went up and we are OK. Yes we have a celler. But, today, we have good news. The Zebra Finches, Beep and Peep had one egg to hatch today. They still have two more eggs in the clutch. Mommy can't get a good pic yet or we would show you. Since it was born on the Kings birthday, we should name him Elvis. hehe But we don't know what it is a boy or girl. Mommy said we would have to wait and see. So it is baby #1. We are so excited to hear the little chirps. Here is a vote for y'all. Fortune

  Hi from Fortune ,St. Patrick D'bird and Lonnie
Hope to hear from you. We just got out of the cellar. Tornado on the ground was headed our way. It sure was scary. We are all safe though. The skin baby was really freaking out when the storm sirens went off. hehe Finally got electricity so thought we'd check our mail. Here is a vote for y'all from us.

Christmas is a time to be happy, A Time to be grateful, And a time of giving and loving, Christmas is a time to celebrate, And a reminder that a new baby boy, called jesus was born on this day, At christmas you get carol singers, And if your lucky you may get snow, And if your a good girl or boy, Then santa will bring you presents. At christmas you get red robins, At christmas it is a time to gateher together, and appriciate what you have got, and wish people&Friends&family a MERRY CHRISTMAS.to you and your family,Boba,Leia&jango&mommy

It is with a Wing, a Tear, and a Prayer that I bring you this sad note. My Big Sissy Rosalie Hale Bopp has gone to the Rainbow Bridge today. My Daddy eyes are so full of tears that you will have to forgive him if he has hit the wrong keys. I know there is a big tare in his heart cause by the lost of his baby girl. I did manage to bring a smile to his face during play time tonight. Please keep him and mommy in your prayers. I want to thank all of you that have been praying for us.

  Hey, Rio!!
Hi, how are you? Wow, Rio, awesome picture of you!! I try to feed mommy too. I also try to feed daddy, but I like mommy more. If daddy wants to play with me, sometimes mommy has to leave us alone. I like seeing the bird in the mirror. I love baths!! They make me all happy and then I like hanging upside down. Mom sometimes feeds me from her mouth. She holds a nut or cracker inbetween her lips, and I just take it out!! I love giving her kisses and getting my head and neck rubbed; it feels sooooo good!! Be sure and drop by for a visit!
