Harley the Blue & Gold Macaw:
An Ohio parrot breeder placed Harley at our center when she had to relocate. Macaws are extremely intelligent, colorful, and long-lived birds that require special care. Harley speaks over 50 words and usually says them at the appropriate time, illustrating that he has some comprehension of their meaning. Harley seems to suffer from an identity crisis. When asked “What will you be when you grow up?” Harley responds with “EAGLE!” Hatched: 2/1989 Arrived: 6/1990
Skye the Hyacinth Macaw:
Skye came from a Long Island home where she was basically ignored for 10 years. Her species requires special nuts in their diet which she was not fed. Skye’s poor diet left her with irreversible, lifelong handicaps. She developed a heart murmur and cataracts in both eyes, rendering her partially blind. After many weeks of a proper diet her feathers turned from a pale gray to her beautiful blue. Unfortunately, now this endangered bird cannot be used for re-population. Hatched: 1/1/1998 Arrived: 10/22/09
