"Willie is a Hahns macaw I adopted from a shelter about 3 years ago. He is much nippier than my other birds (everything from budgies to a U2), but also probably the most intelligent of the bunch. He definitely has the most personality, which makes me love him in spite of the occasional bite. I think his previous owner was afraid of him and let him get away with too much. I'm working on that. Willie responds to affection and together time much more than to food. He says "Willie" and "Come on" and "What a good boy!" and "Be a good boy" and "Bad boy" and whispers "Go to sleep" when you whisper to him. He also laughs whenever he hears others laugh--even if it's on tv. And he makes the greatest kissing noise, especially when you kiss him on top of his sweet little head. He thinks he's a gangsta bird; he'll say, "Hey, Willie, Willie" in a low growling voice--LOL. He enjoys burrowing inside my shirt and sticking his head out of the collar. Willie is tone deaf when it comes to singing--he'll try to sing along with you, but everything comes out on one note. But he does love to dance, especially to The Killers and (LOL again) the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas albums. He is aggressive towards the other birds, so I need to watch him during outside play time. They've all learned (the hard way) to stay away from him when he comes near. One thing I really like about Willie is that he will travel in the car and visit and seems to enjoy it. When I go to relatives homes, he'll come out of his carrier and sit on my shoulder quietly the whole time. (I give him a sip of water and a snack.) He is really Mr. Personality."
