Other Pets at Shelter...
Rescue Group: St. Louis Avian Rescue (STAR)
Cracker is a beautiful Military Macaw. He is tame and a talker. He says "hi" to other birds and says "bye, bye" when you walk out of the room or turn off the light at night.
Crackers loves to chew on wooden toys and seems to really like bells too. His favorite activity for now, though, is the shower. His foster mom says he loves it and just looks at her when she turns off the water, as if to say, "Hey! I wasn't done yet!"
Crackers will stick out his foot when he wants to be picked up. He likes to have his head scratched and to be petted. He would be a great bird for anyone with large bird experience.
Crackers' approximate hatch date is 1995, and his adoption donation is $600.
