Facts about Jackie

  • Breed: Macaw
  • Color: Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie and I am a beautiful Blue & Gold Macaw. At first, I was afraid of my foster mommy because I was in a new environment, but now I absolutely love her. I do some tricks like waving my hand and saying hello and when my foster mom says “where’s the my pretty girl?”, I show her my wings especially - if there’s a treat involved! I do also often mumble and sometimes say bad words though, so try not to encourage me too much on that end. I love almonds, apples, and oranges – they are my favorites. I also eat my bird pellets and some fresh fruits and veggies. I'm kinda picky, but my foster mommy is helping me out with that. I am protective of certain toys in my cage, so you just need to be aware of that. I do know how to fly even with my wings trimmed, so please make sure that when we go outside that I am either in a predator proof cage, travel crate, or in a harness. I also love bath time, especially on my bird stand out in the sun! I do step up, but only after I get to know you and feel I can trust you. I can be very loud at times, but, after all, I am a macaw!! I do prefer women over men, but maybe if you come meet me, we can figure out together if I am the right bird for you? I hope you will come meet me very soon. In the meantime, maybe you would like to send me a welcome to rescue gift? If so, you can see my wish list on amazon at: All gifts will be cherished! Thank you!
Beaky love to you,

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.
