Basha-Blue and Gold Macaw
Hi I’m Basha and I’m a two-year-old blue and gold macaw. When I first got rescued I was sure scared of everything going on but now that I have my own room and a calm home, I’m really starting to come out of my shell! I step up sometimes but sometimes I still get scared and don’t want to. I’m also not so sure about head scratches, but maybe in time I’ll like them.
I’m learning to like toys though-especially after I see my foster mama playing with them. Then I get real interested and want to know what she’s playing with! I like fresh fruit such as strawberries and bananas and of course, seeds! Mama keeps trying to get me to eat these weird pellet things but so far I’ve ignored them.
I can say “hello”, “cracker”, “Polly wanna cracker?”, and my name! Like most macaws I like to scream and vocalize frequently, but I also play quietly by myself too. I would do best in a calm home and with someone who has experience with my large size and personality. I also do not like dogs. I’d love to find my forever home, will it be with you?
