Facts about Vinny

  • Breed: Macaw
  • Color: Blue
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Vinny
Hello Everyone! My name is Vinny and I am a gorgeous Catalina Macaw. No one knows my exact age, not even me, but everyone seems to think I'm around 20. Considering I can easily live to be 80, I'm still a spring chicken, so to speak!

I'm a pretty curious fella and I like to be where the action is. I like to walk around the floor and see what kind of toys I can find to play with. Some of my favorite things are just stuff you might have laying around like blankets or boxes, or maybe even your laundry! I also love love love to chew paper and wood, the wood doesn't even have to be a toy. Plain wood blocks work fine for me. Best that you provide me some to chew on though..or..well.. you know...I might find my own.

I used to wear a harness and my foster mom is getting me used to wearing one again so I can go outside in my harness instead of in my cage. How much fun would that be!!!?? There are other non-humans in my new foster home but I don't really pay them much attention except when my foster mommy is holding one of the other birds, then I get a wee bit jealous. I don't seem to mind the little humans either, but none of them have really approached me yet so I'm not sure how I would act if they did.

Sometimes, when I want something, or I want to be moved to a different part of the house, I do not use my "indoor" voice and can be quite loud. Like most macaws, I would not make a good companion for anyone living in a condo or an apt so please think about your neighbors if you are considering adopting me.

The vet has given me a clean bill of health. I have gorgeous feathers and you can see from my pics, no picking or plucking here. I am on a great diet of pellets, nuts, veggies and fruits, exactly what I should be eating. I will take a taste of just about anything you offer me, I am a good eater!

I am a little cage defensive but my foster mom is working on that with me. I also seem to be a little distrusting of men, maybe even scared of them. My foster family is working on that with me too.

I know I will make an excellent family companion with people who are willing to be patient and help me understand that I don't have to be fearful of men and there is no need for me to protect my cage from anyone! Could you be those people? Please come out and meet me and let's find out! Would you like to buy me a Welcome to Rescue gift from my Amazon Wish list? Here is the link:

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my story! Hope to meet you soon!
Love, Vinny
