Love Came on the Wings of a Greenwing Macaw…
||A MACAW PARROT is one of the most well known exotic birds; just being with Linda Ott’s macaw would brighten her day.
There are approximately 30 species of these parrots. In the wild, they can be found living in tropical forests. A MACAW is one of the most well known exotic birds. Their numbers are continuously decreasing because of environmental pollution, habitat destruction and pet trade. Some species live only in captivity at the present time.
|Linda Ott acquired her macaw in the spring of 1996; as a result of her home burning down, the loss of several pets, birds, and a home based graphic design business. |
As a new macaw owner Linda quickly learned a lot about her young chick parrot. Hand feeding and handling a parrot chick became a 24-hour around the clock care. Love came on the wings of a greenwing macaw for Ms. Ott that spring day in 1996. She named her macaw Phoenix – meaning for a bird arising from fire. This little gangly chick macaw became her focus during this time of her life. Phoenix gave Linda Ott new life.
If you happen to own a macaw you know they are very clever, large, colorful, loving and affectionate birds. Even though they are highly intelligent, at home they can be destructive and noisy. If not correctly handled, they can even be very difficult aggressive.
As Phoenix grew so did the affection of a macaw bird and owner. Soon the two were inseparable. Life had a new meaning to Linda Ott with her friend Phoenix.
