Sorry about the shaking. I had a dog on the couch with me when I caught BB watching the birds on the deck and purring. I guess that is what you call this. I searched a few sites and could find no other video of a Macaw Purring

Christine, you have the video set on 'private'. :( If you change the settings, we can all watch BB.

He loves watching the birds on the deck. :( @ Dinosaur call.
It was taken with my cell phone and I was in kinda a rush to get it before he stopped. Oh well

Didn't mean that offensively at all:( Kiwi makes a similar noise at the squirrels outside, and I've always thought of it as a dino-call to let them know he's watching them:52::D. BB's noise just reminded me of that, just at a macaw volume!

Oh now sweetie not offended at all. I really had no clue what that sound was he made. He has done it a few times. Once when I was rubbing his foot LOL.
I really with the quality of the video was better.
Whew Macaw volume.
He was Yelling HI HI HELLO to the birds outside but they kept flying off so this is what I ended up with.
When I clean his dry food dish what is left gets put on the deck for the wild birds. :) He shares
