Lots of parrots, most of them rescues
My macaws are SO happy, that the bird flu scare is called off for Denmark.

That means they again are allowed to come outside and enjoy the natural rays of sun :smile015::smile015:

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
Love that picture, glad they can safely venture outside. More fun than flying a kite at the beach!!

Yes, the scarlet in this photo is a baby :)

The harness is one I have designed myself as the aviator did not work for Sugar. I also wasn't a big fan of the fact that the aviator (which is the only bird harness I can get) puts pressure on one point of the fused spine, if the bird gets scared and flies to the end of the rope at high speed.

Yes it's a boy and a girl. I don't see a gender difference as much as it's a personality difference. I meet up with a lot of different macaws weekly (last week was 2 GW, 1 military, 2 scarlets and 7 BG) and for as many different macaws I meet, their personality is different. I don't see much difference as regards to gender.

Hope it helps :)
