This is my girlfriends new pet, a Greenwing Macaw.

She is still going through an adjustment phase to our very busy house,

but seems to be a pretty good girl.

We call them Scarlet Macaws. Beautiful birds! In the wild they are quite noisey and very humourous. Excellent capture, I can't wait to see more. (Please?)

Thank you Barracuda..

Actually, the Scarlet is a little smaller, and the red marks on their face are not as prominent. We used to breed Macaws, I'm no expert but my girlfriend has been around them for some time. She has allways wanted a Greenwing..

Yes they can be quite loud at times, hence my statement about Sam being a good girl so far.. We dont breed birds any more, but still have 2 Cockatoos, a Congo Grey, a Senegal, and now Sam.. They can be very funny at times.

I was not aware of the difference Meiko, learn something new everyday. I've only seen Blue and Greens, and Scarlets.
