Bird of the Month: July 2009

Merlina showing Ira affection

Merlin, AKA Merlina
By Ira Goldberg

Merlin aka Marlina is a 22 year old Blue & Gold female Macaw.

I fostered her with a contract for adoption October 25, 2008. It was my understanding Merlin was cage bound and had received little or no attention for some time.

When I adopted Merlin, she was pretty much plucked from her neck down. It took a period of adjustment for her to settle in and now, about 10 months later, with a lot of love and attention and not being locked away in a cage, she has about 85 percent of her feathers.


Merlin, AKA Merlina, when Ira first started fostering her

I'm glad Merlin and I made a bond upon first meeting. It was like love at first sight. She is such a joy, and has been a great addition to our family and our flock.

Macaws are very special companion birds. Highly intelligent, quick to form their own opinions of people, they are a thinking bird.

Being owned by a macaw is a very special thing, and a relationship with a single macaw, a group or a flock is a relationship that changes how you view other birds forever.
