We rescued him twice from a abusive home, had paper/contract made and he is ours and can not go back to his previous owner plus his old owners got in trouble BIG TIMES. When we got him, he was in a bad way I would put his old pictures on, but they are really sad. As you can see he is a pretty pretty boy!

Hi! My name is Cap'n Mac

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Lake Almanor, CA.

BabyBird, Goofy, Handsome Stud, Pretty Bird

17 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

chicken, turkey, eggs, fruit, nuts just about everything that my Mom and Dad eats!

I like being on my perch looking outside and I love being on my Daddy's head when he walks around I also like going to craft fairs with my Mommy, she lets me sit on her shoulder.

I don't like woman cause my old owners the lady was always mean to me and slapped me. I also don't like squirt bottles or showers but my Mom still gives me showers and tells me its good for me, I guess she is right cause when they got me I was called a ugly bird from my old owners cause of my plucking but now I'm better thanks to my Mommy and Daddy

When Mommy or Daddy take me outside with my brothers and sister I also like it when Mommy graps my rear-end and makes me laugh

I like to do the "wolf" whistle when my Daddy is outside and people are walking they think its Daddy. I also saying hello whenever someone is in the living room
I also love standing on Daddy's head! I also like screaming for Mommy and people walk by thinks there's a child calling for Mommy. I also like saying "crap" but Mommy doesn't like me saying that - I wonder why?

  WELL, Whadaya KNOW!!!
It's Cap'n mac and his goof frother Louie!! GUYS!! It's great t'hear from you!!!!!!

What a rockin' surprise. Actually I read your note about a week ago but I haven't had but a moment or two on the ol' BC (gotta share that BOTM vote) so your note's gone unanswered for way longer than it should've.

Really glad t'hear that all's well with the two of you. Bummer about the tail feathers, Mac, and Louie, the same for your chest feathers. Life's a real stresser sometimes, ain't it, and nothin' helps with the worries like givin' a feather a good yank. Hopefully things will settle down for you guys once you're all moved and comfortable again. I"m so sorry about all the chaos life's been throwin' at your family for way too long now. And so sad about Betty's passing and Tory's needing a different home setting. His heart must really be hurtin' these days. I can only imagine...

Life is bein' real kind to me these days. I've got me a macaw sister now; a Greenwing, believe it or not. She came here as a foster along with her Blue & Gold frother. Yup, I had me some company there for awhile that looked just like you guys! Elvis was adopted not too long after he moved here and then after he left, Reba settled right in and made herself comfortable here so Mom invited her t'stay. That wouldn't have happened if I'd been upset about her presence, but I wasn't. Reba and I get along great, even sharing a cage. She sleeps on the outside at night but roams in and out all day, just like I do. It's a nice arrangement.

This is so awesome, gettin' to chat with you guys again. You always were some of my coolest friends! I've missed ya guys. Take care and if it works out, I hope we get t'chat more in the future.

Your Pal,

Good t'hear from you early in the week. Sweet of ya t'drop by with Valentine's wishes. I did just as ya asked— I gave my mom a wing hug and told her it was from you. She says thanks so very much.

I'm so bummed about your dad not seeming t'get better. I look at his pictures here on your page and can just imagine how worried you are about him. He appears t'be your buddy, Cap'n. Maybe there's a turning point in his health yet ahead. I'm gonna keep wishin' for that. If your sweet mom happens to escape to your room for a private little cry, please, would ya put a wing around her and let her lean on you then tell her you're fillin' in for me there for a sec 'cause I'd be more than happy t'let her cry on my shoulder if she needed to... or if yours needed a break.

Sendin' you and the flock and family love and hope. And lots of it.

Well I have to tell you....big brothers are a pain in the vent too. I've got CLYDE to deal with. He's like a stick of dynamite! Drives me crazy! Maybe we should trade for a while. Bet you'd take your brother back in a minute! Ugh - cockatoo's! Mom always tells him that his egg must have been cracked. I think she just might be right! Here's a v4u. Birdie hugs, Bobbi

Hey!! So ya like the new way I spell my name, huh? Cool. Ya know how it is- somedays ya wake up and decide t'do somethin' different and that day it was change the spelling of my name.

I had a laugh when I read that you chewed up the note your mom was readin' to ya. If that don't sound like a macaw, I don't know what does! And about that hug ya asked me t'share with my mom — no problem! Consider it done.

HELLO!! How are ya? Thought since I had a minute or two at the keyboard, I'd drop by and letcha know I was thinkin' of you and LOUIE and hopin' your fall season's been a nice one so far.

No big news from here other than the parronts did me a favor and built the smaller birds of this flock their own room so now there's no more worryin' about them bein' under foot. Their chatter and messy-mess is kept to their own space while us bigger birds enjoy the peace and quiet of our solitude. Ha ha... like we're actually quiet. Somethin' ain't right if it's TOO quiet, right?

High five to ya!

Great t'hear from ya, Man. My BC time took a major hit about the time your note came in which is why it's takin' me so long to answer your note. We went through a stretch there where the heat n' humidity were so miserable, the meticulous yard work was left undone. Once the temps let up, mom had t'hit the weeding and manicuring hard which meant no computer time for me. I did enjoy all the outside time though.

I understand your flock has had t'say goodbye to a long-time member... I'm really sorry t'hear that. It hurts t'loose a feathered family member... I'm sure you're doin' all you can to help your mom through the hard times. Give her a big ol' macaw hug for me, will ya please?

I'm glad t'hear your dad's got him a job again. That's a sign of progress right there, huh.

Thanks for stoppin' by my page, C. Mac. Tell that LOUIE "Hey!" for me, would ya?

Take care, m'friend.

  Hi Cap'n Mac
Wow wouldn't that be awesome if my mom could come out there and meet your mom? You sure are far away. Mom and Dad got home from Texas a couple of weeks ago and they drove straight through. It took them from 6:45 on a Monday morning and they got home at 1pm on Tuesday. The parronts were sick for 2 days! They're gettin' too old to play those games. Of course I was glad to see her home earlier than expected though. Mom leaves for FL in the morning and has 2 back to back shows. The next in SC. Back to being a gypsy again. What a life! Leaving you a vote best bud! Birdie hugs, Bobbi

  Hi Capn Mac & Louie!
How's the weather out there? The snow missed us this time. The temps were too warm so all it's doing is raining. I was really hoping for some snow. I was going to stick (white) Clyde outside and have him get lost! Mom would have had to search for the black beak! That bird is annoying, I tell ya. I might have to take a trip out to your place just to get away from him for awhile! Here's a v4u. Birdie hugs, Bobbi

  Hello My Dear Friends!
(I'm talkin' to you AND Louie here.) It was great t'hear from ya. Always good t'know my fellow macaw-friends are fairin' well and enjoyin' life. Got lots of snow at your way? Not much here. Don't hardly look like winter at the moment, though the grass is rather a dull shade of brown. Whatya keepin' yourselves busy with this time of year? I've been doin' my usual; playin' inside a box that's on the floor behind the door. It's a small box this year seein' as a larger one don't let the door open very far and we do need Mom t'be able to get in and out. We rather like her company not t'mention the food she brings in. Today it was pomegranate, cantaloup, red grapes, and blueberries (of the frozen kind). I suggested she spend the afternoon baking some birdie muffins but then she offered to type for me on the BC so I said it was okay if we made muffins later.

Good t'hear from ya. You all take care!

Long time no squawk! I love my human but I sure wish she could figure out how to get me back on the BC like the good ol' days. How's life treatin' you and Louie-Guy? Bet it's downright chilly at your place already. I hear it's pretty brisk outside at mine. I've not been out now for nearly a week. Can a bird get cabin fever in that short a time? I say YES.

I've got some news. I'm no longer the only macaw in the house. Nope! I now have me a GW friend. Yuppers. There for a while I was even keepin' company with a blue & gold like yourself. The bird club mom's a member of got a call about five birds needing to go into the foster program. My mom offered to take in the two macaws. It was somethin', me between a smaller bird and a bigger bird. With about six weeks of concentrated training, the B&G learned to step up on a stick for transport. He was good about being handled but didn't much care for playing nice with other birds. He went to a home where he's the only large bird. But the red-head, she's been invited t'stay here with me seein' as I rather like the girl. Mom always said I'd be the only macaw 'cause she didn't figure I'd be crazy about the idea of sharin' mom-time, but it turns out I don't mind at all. In fact, if I see mom holdin' Reba, I clomp my way over, stand on her feet and join the love-fest.

Hopin' everything's awesome at your place!
Say 'Hi' t'Louie for me, would ya?

Well mom did get her points back thank goodness! I saw her ears turn red she was so mad that she lost them! Haven't heard from Rocky's family lately although mom has tried to email them. We are keeping them in our prayers also. I sure hope things settle down for them soon. Stay well and "hi" to the flockily. Birdie hugs, Bobbi

Boy, ya caught me on a good day... the one day I've gotten the chance t'write in about a MONTH. I'm tellin' ya, Man, things have really gone t'pot around here as far as BC privileges go. Stinks t'high Heavens. I trust since ya flew by t'say "Hi" that all's well with you and Louie and the rest of the flock. That's good. That's good. Glad t'be able to assume that. Life's good here. Keepin' myself out of trouble and in mom's good graces which makes for a pretty good life. I've got no complaints, if that tells ya anything. Spent a lot of time outdoors in my remodeled parrot pen this summer. Mom had this idea to take last year's four-sided model and add a fifth, making it into our very own Illinois pentagon. I was impressed with how much more space it gave us to stretch our wings and move around. With cooler days just around the corner here, I'm making a point of enjoying every last balmy hour left to the season. It's going to positively seem boring t'have t'stay in the house all day come chilly fall and freezing winter. Bummer for me, huh?! Bet you guys are already feelin' the chill there.

Thanks for flyin' by. Great t'hear from ya. Good t'chat with ya.

  Hello Cap'n Mac!
Awesome t' hear from ya. You dropped by at the perfect time; I happen to be checkin' in on my BC. Haven't gotten to do much of that lately, what with the summer routine around here. I never thought I'D see the day where my page would say I'd been missing for 5 days. Unheard of! Even when on vacation, I used t'check in. Here lately, it's been a struggle.

Anyway, great t'know you and Louie are doin' alright. Those walks to the lake sound interesting. A boat ride would be the coolest; I got t'do that once back when the parronts had this little jet boat. They took me along one time, down the Mississippi River. I need t'get the pictures from that up on my page again. That was a good day, as I recall. You get to go in the boat (separately from the Louie-guy), I think you're gonna like it. Let me know if ya do!

Take care!

P.S. You bet I'll ask my mom to share a hug with Mr. Dallas on your behalf. He's an alright guy, ain't he. I love havin' him as a neighbor, let me tell ya. I'll likely be seein' him this next week so I'll have that chance to let him know you appreciate him a whole bunch.

  Hey Cap'n Mac!
How's my Lake Almanor friends doin'? Keepin' cool enough? Or has summer actually started for you yet? I know some of you northern CA birds stay cool a lot longer than the rest of us. But then you and Louie, you're just COOL birds anyway, right?

Summer's definitely here at my place. Can't say that bothers me. I like heat and humid, bein' the tropical bird that I am. Yesterday I was out in the parrot pen and got a good dousing with the Mr. Bottle. That inspired me to get down and play in the pan of water on the ground. I was one soaked bird by the time I quite flickin' water up and over my back.

Hopin' your Summer Days are off to a good start.

  Hi Cap'n!
Sorry it's been so long since we've been on. Mommy gets awfully busy in the summertime but I finally pitched a fit and MADE her take some time to blog for me! (It helps that it's raining today though!) How is everything going with your flock?? Hope you're enjoying summer like we are!

Well, can't hold peanuts yet, but you should see how I can climb all around my cage and walk on the floor and perch with both feet without even hanging on! It's pretty great. My crooked toes keep getting tangled up in mommy's hair though! Tehehe! She said that if I stayed on her shoulder instead of climbing on her head that wouldn't happen, but I can see farther when I'm on her head, so I just keep on doing it. I don't get all panicky anymore when it gets stuck either. I just pick up my foot and scream and mommy untangles it for me. I have her so well trained! Tehehe!

And mommy FINALLY got pages up for Bonkers and FlutterBug, so if you have some time and you want to stop by and welcome them that would be so fantastic! I've been telling them what great BBFFs are on the BC and they're pretty excited to meet you all.

Well, Mommy promises to try harder and let us be on BC more than she has been, so we'll be back to see you very soon! Love you lots!! ~Huey

  Hi Cap'n!
Well, it's official. Unless the x-rays show something different my pins will finally come out on Thursday! Whew! It's been a long haul...nearly 9 weeks and I'm just excited to see how it goes! It sounds like I'll have to stay with Doc Melissa again for a day or two, but that's okay. Mommy says that I can trust her, and she would know cuz she works there now. Speaking of mommy, it's her hatchday tomorrow! Only they call it a BIRTHday. Whatever. And the other big news is that we have 2 new flock members! Two more sun conures like me! They are mates and mommy named them FlutterBug and Bonkers. They were rescues...locked in a basement for almost 4 years. They've been here for a couple of months because they were supposed to be adopted, and there was a couple different families that wanted them, but they were SOOO scared in a different house. Mommy said that's funny cuz they were never scared when they came here, but I say it's cuz they know how much mommy loves all us fids. They always cuddled right up in mom's shirt when they came back, so she decided that they needed to stay with us! (not to mention that she fell in love with them too!) So they were in quarantine for 2 months and they just got moved into the bird room tonight! Bonkers kept flying over to my cage though...I'm not too sure about that. He was real friendly though. Not a mean bone in his body. Anyway, that's the big news in our house! I'll be sure and have Zebers stop by and let you know how my surgery went! Love you very much!! ~Huey

So sorry to hear about your mom's mom . Your family will be in our prayers.

Looks like I might be getting a new buddy. A Harlequin macaw which is a hybrid between B&G and greenwing.It's a rescue mom is taking in .

The weather here has been beautiful.I can't wait until I can get outside again

Happy Easter to you and your family.

Good t'hear from ya. I'm just sorry you had such sad news that needed sharin'. To be expecting your Grandma t'be coming to stay with you and then have those plans so abruptly changed... how heart-breaking. It's so sad when we have to say good bye forever...

All's well here with me. I keep busy with all the usual things that keep a macaw entertained, along with a few that shouldn't be included. Hey, I don't want mom's job to be too easy. My favorite fun thing is still watching for that chancet to sneak out of my room and go in search of someone to surprise. Mom's no fun to sneak up on. I don't startled her in the least but the guys in my house; oh boy! You'd think I was a cobra or something! Oddly, if there's no one beside mom to pester, I often just let myself back in my room and hope for better luck the next time I wander out. I'm tryin' to keep things interestin' around here! Bet you can say the same thing. Thanks for comin' by. Happy St. Paddy's day tomorrow. Thank goodness you've got a little green on your head. There'll be no pinchin' you tomorrow. R ('>

Sorry to hear about your human sis, hope things are getting better for her.Mom knows what it's like to have a stroke. She had one as a kid at age 7.It took her awhile
before she could even walk again.

Sorry I haven't been on in so long . Things here have had it's ups & downs.

Now things are getting busy with all the babies soon ready to hatch. Mom's been trying to get everything together for them. We have 12 eggs between 3 pairs. Some pairs haven't even started yet.

everyone here is doing great! We're all just trying to stay warm with all this cold weather and snow .

Talk to you later
