Description

Hi my name is Elmo and I’m a 22 year old, extremely handsome B&G Macaw. I came into Birdline because my owner’s new partner was scared of big birds – which I don’t understand because us big chaps are softies at heart.

I have a problem with my right wing, which a vet has looked at. But it can’t be fixed and I can’t fly. I also have a history of breathing issues, so it is important that I don’t mix with those dusty old-world birds like African greys or cockatoos.

I am very tame, step up nicely, and love to sit with you and receive tickles. Despite not being able to fly I am adventurous, enjoy wandering around the place and finding things to play with. Be careful because if you don’t provide me with toys, I will find my own shredding toys – like your wallpaper!

I’m a very talkative chappy – most of it is gibberish apparently, but I don’t care! I do pick up swear words though, so it would probably be best if you didn’t swear around me and hopefully I will forget the ones I do know!

I’m generally a placid and quiet bird, but you will remember when there’s a macaw in the house when I decide that its meal time – because I will let you know with a loud scream.

I enjoy the company of other birds, when they are inside their cages. I haven’t encountered any outside their cage though, as we have different time-out schedules. I’m fine with dogs – although obviously they only come in my room when I’m in the cage.

I’m a lovely boy and will fit into any home, busy or quiet as long as there is plenty of time to interact with me both in and out of the cage. Please consider me, you won’t regret it.
