  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Nick
Hello Everyone! My name is Nick and I am a super handsome Blue and Gold Macaw. I am only 9 years old which makes me quite young so please be prepared to have me as your companion for a really long time! My daddy died suddenly and I've been a little quiet since I came into Rescue, but I am now mumbling again and my foster mom is pretty sure I'll be talking again soon.

I have a brand new, beautiful cage and it makes me feel very safe and secure which makes me more confident and happy. I do have to admit that I am NOT a morning bird, and since I'm not allowed to have coffee like you humans, you will have to learn when I want to be left alone or I would like some attention. I like head scritches and I like to handled and touched after I get to know you.

I seem to like men and women about the same and I even get along with my foster family's small, 4 legged barking buddy. Please though, you should never leave me out of my cage and unsupervised with another 4 legged buddy, I am depending on you to keep me safe!

I used to have a small plucking problem but now my new feathers are growing in and I look quite handsome, if I do say so myself. I like you to tell me that too, as often as you can :)

My favorite foods are nutri-berries, watermelon, grapes, and almonds. My foster mom is trying to get me to eat these things called vegetables but so far I can't really say I like them. Oh well, we will keep trying.

Wouldn't you like to come meet me and see for yourself how handsome I am? I would love to see if I could go home with you! In the meantime, would you like to send me a "welcome to Rescue" gift from my wishlist? Here is the link:

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to meet you soon!


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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
