Today I met this friendly young macaw at Omar’s Exotic Birds, this week’s Artist Date. Omar’s is so colorful and I love seeing their birds. Our cockatiels came from Omar’s and we’ve been customers for over twenty years, so they know us well. I asked permission from the store manager before I took any photos. This lovely macaw was very friendly and not at all disturbed by my camera. In fact I had to be careful because he was a little too curious and kept reaching for the lens.
I saw this bright little Senegal Parrot, while looking around the store, and it tugged at my heart. We lost our Senegal a little over a year ago and I still miss her.
Before I left, I went back to see the friendly macaw, and found him eating his lunch.
I spent a few minutes looking at the wall covered with bird toys, but I resisted buying any and headed home.
