Update: I thought I was being adopted, but it wasn`t meant to be! So, I am still available!!!! I am a gorgeous, friendly, 23-year-old blue and gold macaw, living in the care of my Mickaboo foster mom since May 2017. I had landed in someone`s backyard in April, begging for food. SF Animal Care and Control picked me up and tried for weeks, unsuccessfully, to find my parents. One day, I got out of my cage in the shelter and when staff entered the room, I flew over and landed on one lady`s shoulder. Just to be clear, I did not leave her with a new piercing, although I did give her a little scare. I just craved some friendly contact. Once Mickaboo rescued me, I quickly learned to trust and love my foster family. One day I shyly said, "Hello?" to my foster mom, and have said it a few times since, but nothing more. I love Brazil nuts, head scritches, showers with mom, going to school with her from time to time, and hanging out on playstands in the family room with my human and foster parrot flock. My mom traced my band, but all they could tell her was that it`s a 1994 band, establishing my age. My magnificent plumage is almost as great as my personality. I`ll be someone`s best feathered friend forever (BFFF).
