Hi Merlin! You look just like my grandpas bird. You are a very beautiful bird. It is nice to see some local birds. As soon as my mom takes a picture of me and her I will have her put it on my site.

Come visit me, Kricket.

  WOW, they could be brothers! Merlin just had his bath today. He always lets me know when he wants to go swimming. When I am in the kitchen and washing some dishes, he will fly over and perch on my shoulder and then keep sliding down my arm to get in the water. To watch him take a bath is a total laugh fest! Of course, no matter what he is doing, he will always be holding on to a finger with one of those large Macaw feet. No matter how depressed you are, watching this turns it all the way around! Of course, on the days where he doesn't bath, he gets misted from the water bottle. He usually decides to go swimming about once a week and he will tolerate the misting, but not a fan.

How does your Merlin do with the baths? Merlin gets his in the kitchen sink. Deep enough and my back can accommodate. Is your Merlin a clown in the water?

Thanks for visiting ~~ Joey & Merlin

Come visit me, Merlin.

Come visit me, Blue.

  Thanks for visiting. Max is a much happier boy these days, although he still doesnt like men. He warmed up to his new brother Molokai though and now they preen and feed each other.

Come visit me, Jenny & Harley.

  Yes Merlin - We are Buckeyes, and thanks for the support! Gretta doesn't need any scarlet & grey scarves on her because she always wears Buckeye colors! The rest of us get to dress up on game days. Thanks for visiting - Liz

Come visit me, Crackers, Gretta, Fran, Bailey & Hannibal.

  What a cutie! Wonder if you can help me out.. My grandmother lives in New Port Richey, I usually end up visiting her once a year-ish. Do you know any good bird stores (really, anything parrot-related) down there? I search every time, to no avail.

Come visit me, Guthrie, Jude, Sage, Beedie & Ophelia.

  Magic Merlin! You are magnificent! My 2 Blue & Golds are currently expecting their first clutch in 2 weeks (McCartney & Jackie). Macaws are very distinct birds and I couldn't live without mine! Kisses on your little head! Liz

Come visit me, Crackers, Gretta, Fran, Bailey & Hannibal.

  I grew up in New Port Richey!! Gulf Harbors to be exact. Love Merlin's name and he is quite handsome!

Come visit me, Frosty, Gargoyle, Skadi & Sasha.

  Hey there Merlin! What a gorgeous bird you are, blue and golds have always held a special place in my heart!

You met your owner through insanity? That's classic and absolutely appropriate for bird ownership isn't it? :)

Come visit me, Schroeder.
