These birds are not as loud as the Macaw but will scream in the morning and at night. They can be heard up to a mile away. She is not fully feathered and has to have assistance in grooming. She is very temperamental on who she will love on. She can be crazy fun and loves to be the center of attention in a family. She will say hello and likes to play peek-a-boo. She likes to play in a pillowcase of in your shirt. She would be fantastic for a person who likes to have a bird sit with them at night watching a show on TV. Must have an experienced handler and knowledge of large birds.
