Hi! My name is Alex

I am a Yellow-Collared Macaw from DeKalb, IL.


15 years old   M

Yellow-Collared Macaw

Cooked food, papaya, mango, salad

He likes to sit on my bearded dragon's tank so he can be extra warm and look out the window. Alex also likes to lay in bed under the covers.

He hates flying or wing flapping for exercise.

When Laura takes me for trips in the car she makes sure I can see out the window. I love to fight with Mitch, he's like my older brother.

He makes drinking noises when he hears or sees liquids. Alex says "Ow, ow, ow" when he bites someone and then laughs. Alex also growls like a dog..

Green is the best color..

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi Patrick here, Mommy made it home from church and the little skin niece is with her. Slate and Mica moved into the bird room wirh us this morning. They moved into a larger cage. Yes, they promptly escaped while Mom and Dad were gone. They wouldn't get out of the room and just ran around climbing on everybirdies cage to visit. It was great fun, until Mom put them up. hehe We want to drop off a vote for you and wish you a lovely day. Your friends, St. Patrick, Slate, Mica, Lonnie, Cotton Ball and Fortune........ (we will go hit the votey thing for your flockmates if you have any before we go visit other friends.

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