Saw him in the bird store and fell in love. He was and still is very cuddly(for a severe). He kept rolling over on his back and poofing up his feathers.. Awards

Hi! My name is Marvin

I am a Severe Macaw from Virginia Beach, VA.

The Terrorist, Bubba, Doofus

10 years old   M

Severe Macaw

Dried papaya, anything orange, baby formula(down to one feeding a day!)

On top of the torchiere lamp. At the bottom of my cage playing with my toys.

I have to be on top of the lamp!

He scratches my pin feathers and makes me more comfortable. He also wrestles me all the time. One of these days I'll get him.....

Talking to the bird in the mirror. Eating mommas book case when no one is looking..

  Hi Marvin, from your severe cousin KC
You're a good lookin' fella!

I'm new to BC and love seeing my other Severe flockmates! Drop by and write my mom when you have a chance!

I'm a 6 year old rescue that loves my new home but have developed some bad habits and my Mom Stephi would really appreciate talking to other Severes Moms and Dads's...especially with any advice :)

And giving you a vote! I love the pic of you hanging out at the top of the lamp. Watch out you don't burn yourself on the bulb :)

  Just a little update on Marvin. Since he has been completely weaned off of the baby formula (1 week before x-mas) his talking ability has really come to life. The little stinker was holding out. He can say his name, "hi", "hello", "step up", "out" and a few other things out of the blue (nothing vulgar). Hes turned out to be quite the critter.

Come visit me, Sully & Roxie.

  LOVE!! Mini macaws
HI there, sound like a great!!! bird. I had a mini macaw, called Ismael Noel....I got her when she was 4yrs old....from a family with little kids...she was a biter, so best not around little kids, but we had a great time together until I had to move and couldn't take her with me...she is with friends tho that love her and spoil her until some day I may be able to have room for her. She was a great talker and would say things like...watcha doin? when I was down the hallway...or thank you thank you thank you, you're a turkey bird, you're a stinker, and bye bye when you were leaving and Ishmael when you walked in the door...she would be very aggressive if anyone else was around and I have the scars to prove it, but if we were alone, she'd cuddle and lay flat on her back in my hand and let me do anything to her.... now she is with a family that has two big dogs and she calls them, come ere come ere come ere...and when they come a runnin. she throws seeds at them and laughs at them....she is a character.... I know you are and will be just as special as she is. Now I finally got another smaller bird, a lutino indian ring neck called Sunshine or (OSM awesome, AIDEN (irish for little fire) and Sunshine)..she is in my office at work and is a character..isnt' talking yet but trying real hard...I can hear the beginnings of 'good girl' 'bye bye' and hard to tell what else...she loves her cage, her playgrounds, those mini peanut butter crackers and eats them like grapes, papaya,esp green peppers, carrots and any other fruits and veggies I can slip in when possible....she's a character...come visit us some time.... Donna Marie and Sunshine... :-)

Come visit me, OSM Aiden Sunshine.

  Hi Marvin
You are a cute little thing! I like to chew on the lamp sitting beside my cage when Mom lets me out. But she gets after me, something about the bulbs burning my tongue. I haven't gotten my wings clipped yet, but have a sinking feeling it will be today - cause the bird shop where she bought me is having a half price sale on wing and nail trims. Well, grow up and be a strong bird!

Come visit me, Gerry, Saphira & Toby.

  Thanks for the comments! Marvin is absolutely adorable. (And what a cute name!) That's great to hear that you've been bonding so well through the handfeeding. We have been visiting our Charlie often and helping the breeder hand feed him. Hopefully we'll be able to take him home soon!

Come visit me, Louie, Charlie, Skittles & Kramer.

  Hey, Marvin! We have something in common: I love those papaya bits, too! I met Tiki the other day and I renamed her Queenie because she sleeps under two peacock feathers. I love her colors (I have a secret crush on her...shhhhh, don't tell her, though!).
Nice to meet you, Marvin. Talk to you later.

Ozzy the nanday

Come visit me, Ozzy.

  Hi, Marvin! Welcome to the club! You like to sit on lamps? We like to put holes in lamps. It frustrates grandma to no end. Mom thinks it's funny though!

Come visit me, Freddy, Callie & Tiki.
