A couple people have asked me how I came up with a weird name like smurfmacaw. This is my best buddy. He's 14 years old and I tell most people that he's like having a puppy with a bolt cutter on his face. He eats macadamia nuts in the shell if that gives you any idea of the beak pressure he can exert (I can barely crack a mac with a hammer on a concrete floor....he does it without even straining....can bite through a broomstick without even trying.) He is extremely gentle for the most part but loves to roughhouse.
We've got four other birds, two eclectus (male and female), a senegal and a moluccan cockatoo. Indigo is my special buddy though.
