wow, what a darling little fellow, great to see the huge love between the man and his darling bird, so much affection there. Banana pudding! I hope they can use the chunk out of the robbers arm for DNA.

I think Macaws have a fierce reputation and are very protective of their humans, that is a great story and what a brilliant Macaw Charlie is.
Thanks Barb!

Outstanding article BarbCat! Love the Attack Parrot! In fact, that would actually be more scary to an intruder than a Dog I would think...Something flying and screeching at you...WORKS for ME! Tons of Videos on this news at site! WOW...If I only knew more about those BIG BIRDS I would love to have one...

Loved this!
