"I have a little severe. My mother and I volunteered to help a lady with her at-home animal shelter, which one day involved taking in several parrots from a bird horder. We got 4 birds from her, an Umbrella Cockatoo( formerly and presently named "Precious"), a Red-Lored Amazon(formerly named "Spice", presently named "Boo"), a Sun Conure (formerly and previously named "Phoenix"), and the Severe Macaw (formerly named "Fang", presently named "Grinchi", "Grinch" for short). Grinch came to us with a few problems. His beak was way too long, and his nails were vicious. He's amazingly resilient. From volunteering, I already knew I wanted a macaw, and was relieved to find that Grinchi loved me back. Grinch is incredibly smart. He always works his cage open, but due to a small factor, my mom has no problems with him running about on top of his cage. He only has one wing. In the rescue, I had seen another bird with one wing, and man was he DEPRESSED, so I was glad to find Grinch had a high self-esteem. He's quite the little monkey. Always hanging off of things and running around. Enjoys the simplist of toys. He's absolutely adorable and loves to talk. He says "Hello" when he's happy, confused, or nervous. He says "Come here" to be a little brat, cuz he's either already on you, or running away from you across his cage, but if you say "Grinch, come here" back to him, he'll come running yelling "step-up!!" He says "no bite" when he knows he's been bad, "thank-you" when you give him food he likes, and "peek-a-boo" when he's feeling playful. He says "Hiiiii" to be a flirt, and barks to terrorize our dogs. I'm actually glad the horder didn't want the birds back, cuz if she had, we would have had to give my little Grinchi back to her. He'll eat anything you put infront of him-- even if it was unintentional, and licks plates when there's nothing on them. He's a riot. Hates baths, having his nails or beak done (which is why they're still WAY long), and having his tail touched."
