Re: My First Post and How I Found My Bird!

"Joe mentioned Bingo had a strong hate for men, and Bingo proved that with a few bites to him as he opened the cage."

I can think of a bunch of different reasons that bird bit him, and none of them have to do with him being a man. Cra ... stuff like that just limits us, create barriers and gets in the way of building a relationship with our birds. I wish people would stop doing things like that.

When I first met the macaw I'd adopt a year and a half later I was told she was a man's bird and hated women. After a year at the shelter they realized she's just very selective. Now that she is home with me she gives me kisses and has attacked my parter, which is the total opposite to how some thought things would turn out for her.

And, welcome to the forum.

Welcome and be welcomed. Over time there is no reason that all family members can't be friends on some level with Bingo. Just go slow and work at Bingo's pace.

Re: My First Post and How I Found My Bird!

Welcome! Being a young bird owner is great- you'll have plenty of time to learn about your lifetime friend. I adopted Taco the Lilac Crowned Amazon when I was in elementary school... in 1993. He's still happy and healthy. He "chose" us also- my grandmother was taking notes on a rather withdrawn African Grey, when Taco came over and stole her pen! He stole our hearts too!
