Macarena is a DNA-sexed male DuCorps Cockatoo. His original owner could no longer keep him. Because of his unhappiness, he picked his feathers.
Macarena is an extremely talented talker, however...and he talks all the time. He says “Macarena" and "Here kitty, kitty." He says "Hello" when the phone rings. He sings, he laughs, he even cries. He seems to use language appropriately.
One of his favorite things to do is chew up paper and cardboard. He also loves to play peek-a-boo.
Macarena's approximate hatch date is 2/1995, and his adoption donation is $500.
