.:Ruffle:. by Kay-Noire .:Ruffle:. by Kay-Noire
Don't you just want to ruffle through his fluffy feathers? :flirty::love:
I love parrots. I've always wanted one as a pet.

This is a Blue-and-Yellow Macaw (Ara ararauna), also known as the Blue-and-Gold Macaw. There were two of this kind at the Santa Barbara zoo and they fought a lot.

From my current California Deamin'-series

Oh tut mir leid, dass hab ich verwechselt. Ich meinte den anderen Papagei (den rot-grünen Ara, ich glaube, ich hab dir da auch gerade geantwortet auf dem anderen Bild) Der andere Papagei war ein kleiner Racker und hat mir immer seinen Rücken bzw. wirklich seinen Hintern zugestreckt. Auch wenn ich mich an einen anderen Ort hin bewegt hab, dann hat er sich auch umgedreht und mir immer wieder den Rücken/Hintern zugestreckt ;)
Dieser hier (es waren zwei Blau und Gold Aras da) hat sehr oft mit dem anderen gestritten. Oder vielleicht war das auch spielen? Ich kenne mich bei den Verhaltensmustern von Aras leider nicht so gut aus =)

My mother had a female macaw like this one once before :love:

They're such fascinating animals~
I prefer reptiles over birds and most mammals, but macaws and ravens hold a very special place in my heart.


We had to give her away to a bird sanctuary near where we lived when my mother got cancer though :(
I miss them both...

Aww, I'm so sorry. Since I don't know you I'm aware that I can't possibly find any words to console you and I guess it is only natural to always miss loved ones, so all I can say is that I hope you and the rest of your family are healthy and you'll have long and fulfilled lives. :huggle:

Thanks for your comment. I always wanted a couple of macaws! :tighthug:

Aww, warum magst du Papageie denn nicht? Weil sie laut sind? Dich nachäffen? Dir sagen, dass du die Klappe halten sollst (-->jemand hat mir das letztens gesagt, dass ein Papagei immer 'Shut up' sagen würde, sobald sie den Mund aufmachen würde :giggle:)
Aber trotzdem danke ;)
