Yellow-Collared Macaw

Oatmeal !...LOTS of Oatmeal

I don't step up on hands off my cage only shoulders. But I will step up off the floor.

She plays, she cuddles, she cleans my cage, and she loves me. What more could I want.

He is afraid of hands but loves to be petted.

The people at yahoo groups Parrot Flock told mom lots of stuff about me she didn't know.

  Hi There Marley
This is your buddy Simon here. Thank you so much for the vote and for thinking that I am cool.That McCartney is just a winey brat. All I have to do is spread my wings and he runs away like a little sissy.It would be nice to have an understanding brother like you around here.McCartney is also a tattle tale. Once mom forgot that I was on the parrot gym and went to the kitchen to make dinner.Well I love to destroy computer keyboards, so I saw the perfect opportunity. I didnt even get any of the keys out when big mouth McCartney started screaming for mom. He was looking right at me and screaming"Mom, Mom".Well of course mom came running and caught me in the act. He could have at least given me a warning and time to get away.But not him, he always tells on me. Mom believes him even when there is no proof.Someone took the baby's picture ornament off the christmas tree and threw it on the floor. Both of us were in the room. Who gets blamed for it? Me of course. I have to sit in my travel cage now because McCartney is bad and a tatle tale. Well I have to go now.Talk to you soon, Simon

Come visit me, McCartney, Bonnie Molly, Zak, Gabby, SAMMY, Corona, Simon, Clyde Pan, ZaZu & Piper.

Mom says that he will never learn. Well I have ta go now, mom says its time for bed, so I will leave ya a vote and talk to lyou soon, McCartney

Come visit me, McCartney, Bonnie Molly, Zak, Gabby, SAMMY, Corona, Simon, Clyde Pan, ZaZu & Piper.

  Hi Marley. Here's another vote for you.
Thanks for visiting. How are you doing? Did you have a nice thanksgiving. Ours was pretty good. Dad gave us treats and played with us. I like to play catch. I pick up something in my cage and throw it on the floor. Dad picks it up and throws it back in my cage. This can go on for hours. On Saturday, my sister Sunny sunck up on my sister Calico and chased her off of her cage. It was SO funny. Calico wouldn't come out of her cage until Sunny went back into hers. Well, got to go to bed now. Stop by again soon. Hugs and kisses, Alex.

Happy Halloween from Popeye, Calico, Sunny, Alex, Mom Lori and Dad John.

  Hi Marley!
We will be having a 4 month old YC Macaw joining our flock (Elvis, male Eclectus, 4 years old & Mika, female Timneh Grey, 10 months old) next week.

I was checking out other YC Macaws on I sure hope our new young macaw will blend in with the current flock. I don't know if it is male or female, but seems to like people and has a good disposition.

We're in Boca Raton, Florida. We take the birds for a walk around sunset every evening. How we're going to manage 3 birds remains to be seen. My husband is away this week and taking the 2 birds out is 2 handfuls. I don't trust the shoulder in case they get spooked when a car goes by. I prefer to keep a thumb on a foot.

You are a handsome bird. Too bad you live so far away.

You posted a yahoo group on another site that doesn't work. Can you re-post it or e-mail it -


Come visit me, Elvis.

  Thanks for visiting me.
Hi Marley. I think we have a lot in common. I don't like to step up onto hands while I'm on my cage either. If I am on the floor I will climb on my dad's hand. I love to play on the top of my cage and just sit with my dad and watch TV. I will visit the rest of your family a little later on. Kisses, Alex. PS, Here's a vote.

  Good morning
Actually, wd don't call our yellow-collared "Ringo". He is just "Chicker" or "Chickpot" to us. Silly name, but it fits him. He shouts Hello Baby, Goodbye Baby, Thank You, and Can I Come Out? constantly. Gets a bit nervewracking but he doesn't seem to want to say anything else. Oh, when he goes to bed, he mutters "Good Boy". Better than nothing. we love him.

Come visit me, Ringo aka Chicker, Pippa, Huckleberry & Dajee.

  Greetings to Marley
let me tell you, these yellow collared macaws are the best! Friendly, easygoing, a little loud, but so loving and adorable. I would not give up my little Chicker for anything. Glad to meet you Marley, and here is a vote.

  Hello again!
Thanks for returning the blog. I've only had roughly three of the yellow collars blog me back. Maybe we should all start our own website on yellow collars! That would be neat! What do you think?

Come visit me, Coco, Emerald, Huey, Avi & Sunny.

  Hello Marley, thanks for coming to visit me and thanks for the vote, we gave you one too. You sure are handsome. I didnt like hands either but I am working it out. I have been in my new home for almost a year and boy has my attitude changed. Momma says I am a whole new bird. I like to hang out on my cage door too. Thats the best spot to watch TV. I'll be checking on ya'. Be a good bird. Hugs & Scitches. - Sully
