My wife and I bought a Blue & Gold Macaw a year after we were married (1975), and she was a very good friend to me. He hated her, and when my baby girl came along in 1990, she hated her, too. She left a big hole in my heart when she passed 5 years ago. I didn't think I'd ever own another bird, but last year at a bird show, I found this ole boy. He's around 7 years old or so. Not quite as friendly, but he hates no one. I'm hoping to work with him more and get him a bit more sociable.Our family love birds! We've owned a few but my daughters Sundari parrot was the nearest pet. Birds are so smart!
Ochura was her first baby, a cockatoo. Very expensive bird, our dogs attacked it so we paid for emergency surgery.
