Einstein is a gorgeous Blue and Gold Macaw. He’s only ten-years-old, which is pretty young since he will likely live to 70 or 80! He is very social, loves to play with toys, and spend time outside of his cage. He likes to be around family, especially at meal times. He even enjoys pasta, fruits, and veggies! Like his namesake, he’s very smart and can open all of his foraging toys. Einstein is a true character.
What do others most admire about you?
People love my beautiful turquoise and gold feathers, but I want to be loved for my brilliant mind.
Who would be in your perfect family?
I need someone home at least part of the day and who has some experience with large parrots. A mom and/or dad with some older kids would be good. Maybe even some other feathered family members, and dogs and cats are ok. I like to be part of a flock but all of my flock members don’t have to have feathers!
What’s the one thing about that no one seems to know about a macaw?
When I’m excited, my face blushes. The white area around my eyes is skin, rather than feathers, and it turns pink when I see something interesting.
Why should you go home with a family today?
I want to talk, play, and grow older with my very own family.
