Just about three years ago a friend of mine needed a good home for a (cage possessive brat)named Santana. I said "Hi" & Santana said "hello" back. Two days later Santana came home with me. Six months of hell, complete silence, he wouldn't eat, he barely drank water, I questioned whether I did the right thing. Until I brought home a bag of McDonalds "French fry" was heard across the room. We've been buddies ever since. He is now a "chatter box" (good thing) No longer "cage possessive", he comes out of his cage & cuddles. I definitely would not want it any other way..

Hi! My name is Santana

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from Dartmouth, MA.

"Buddie" & "Spoiled Brat"

23 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Walnuts, Almonds, & French fries

On the cage door. On the edge of the sink helping with the dishes.

"Waiting for food" Why do Waffles take soo long to pop up from the toaster?

Liz never gave up on me!!! She spoils me "rotten"!!!

Favorite saying... "Santana's a spoiled brat" - I wonder who taught me that one???.

If I tell her "I la you" and through her a kiss, she can't be mad at me..

  Hi!
Mom finally got some free time from class!
Did you see the new pics mom put out. She wanted everyone who visits my page to see Ridely and the doggies that live here, because She loves all of us and eventhough I tell the dogs and yes Ridley to shut up, I love them too! That is mommy holding Piper, the dog. Mom got her when her 5 year old shih-tzu unexpectedly got sick and passes away, that was 3 years ago, and now Piper is so bad and spoiled! Just like the rest of us! At first mommy only wanted pics of me on my page but I told her it was ok, that way everyone got to see my whole family!!!

Tell your mom thanks for sending a letter to the PCG. Some of my BC friends, said that their going to let the people who own Nandays now keep them. Mom has not heard anything on this subject . She only know's that the info on my page ,was the olny thing she found on the net so far. But just in case "they are right".Mom took the part off about them coming into our homes and taking or killing your pet Nandays.But its still not fair to blame the Nanday for the Bird flu & Psttacosis.Wild bird would spread these disease faster," then a pet bird who see a vet".And who are they to tell us, what we as pet owners can own.We have rights too.Here's a vote see ya Gunner

Here's a vote Shame on you you opned on of your gifts already.But you know what ...I would of done the same thing! Yesterday we heard this loud noise outside. My human brother came running into the house . He told Us Mr & Mrs. Clause were on the fire truck ...coming our way. Frosty was also with them.They stoped right in front of our house. They gave candy to my human brother.all that noise from the truck ...was sure scary! I started to act weird again. So I made the move back to my old spot on the other side of the wall. Now I'm back to my old self again. Mom said, for a amazon I sure get upset about everything. She said, I'm sure sweet for a amazon too. have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year . From our flock and family... to your's. See ya Gunner

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

  story about santa bird from Leia
Ever wonder how mysterious red feathers appear in your home on Christmas, or how empty nut shells appear on your floor. Or better yet, how did they get out of their cage on Christmas? Let me tell you: This is the story of a beautiful Scarlet Macaw that lived In the rain forest of Peru a long time ago. Now this beautiful bird was Named Reds. He was different from the other macaws, He always looked after The other birds, if they were weak or small or sick. He took care of everyone else but himself. Every year on Christmas Eve, Santa visited the rain forest And asked each bird what they needed or wanted; Reds made sure the Others got First pick. Santa would then ask Reds what he wanted, but he always Asked for food for the others or medicine for the sick ones. Every year It Was the same scene; he never asked for anything for himself. He was Happy to help the Others and it made him proud to see them all eating treats and playing And singing On Christmas Day. Many years passed by and Reds was getting older. He was starting to Have a touch of Arthritis in his wings. It was harder for him to fly Any distance and his eyesight was not what it used to be, but still Nothing changed, he was just a little slower and more tired, his Feathers not quite as bright, but he continued to help the others. Then one year on Christmas Eve, Santa stopped as usual and once again, He asked Reds What he wanted for Christmas. With great difficulty and pain, he Climbed up on Santa's knee and said, "Can you make me young again?" "You see, I am in pain now and can't get around as easy to check on Everyone." Santa thought about this and turned to Reds, and said, "You know my Friend; This job is getting to be too much for me also, so I was thinking of Taking On an Assistant to deliver to my feathered friends." "Who better than You?" "It doesn't pay a lot but the rewards are the best". "The only Thing is You must leave the forest". "Leave the forest? It is the only place I know. Who will take care of The others if I go with you?" Santa said "Look around, they have each other to depend on. It is time Someone did something for you". Reds talked to the others and they Agreed it was time for him to go, so he climbed on Santa's shoulder and Off they flew that night. Now Reds will never grow any older or have any pain and every year on Christmas Eve, make sure you leave some walnuts out, because, if you Hear tiny claws on your roof, you know it is Santa Bird, come to visit Your feathered friends.beaky kisses and a vote LEIA

  merry x-mas
it was the night before Christmas and all through the casa, not a creature was stirring, I wonder que pasa? I was hanging the stockings with mucho cuidado, In hopes that Santa would feel obligado, To bring all the children both buenos y malos a nice batch of dulces and other regalos. My sisters and I went to sleep in our camas, Some in our underwear some in pajamas. When out in the yard there arose such a grito, That I jumped to my feet like a frightened perrito. I ran to the window and I looked afuera, And who in the world do you think quien era? St. Nick in a sleigh, and instead of venados, There were 8 little burros approaching volados. I watched as they came and this fat little hombre, Was shouting and calling by nombre: Ay pancho, ay pepe, ay *bleep*, ay beto!! Ay chato, ay chipo, maruca, y nieto! Then standing erect with his hands on his pecho, He flew to the top of our very own techo, With his round little belly like a bowl of jalea, He struggled to squeeze down our ol chimenea. Then huffing and puffing and a little cansado, He picked up a bag that looked so pesado. He filled all the stockings with lovely regalos, For none of the niqos had been very malos. Then chuckling aloud seeming very contento, He turned like a flash and was gone like the viento: And I heard him exclaim and this is verdad: Merry Christmas a todos and Feliz Navidad!!!!!here is a vote for you,beaky kisses Leia

  Hi Santana
Hope all is well with you and your flock. It is real busy around here. Feathers are flying!! I helped my mom decorate the birdie tree in our entrance. My mom is writing a generic message to wish all my friends a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!!!! I am all ready for Santa Bird. My stocking is hung. My only wish is that my mom will have more time after the holiday to spend more time on the Bird Channel. I am sure she will. I miss blogging, but my mom says things will ease up real soon. Please check out my new pictures taken today. PS. My mom says I can still go to Baby's party on the 22nd. Hope you are going, too. I know there is lots of ice in Missouri, but we still need to party!!! Love, Echo and Mom(Ginger)
