Baby Blue

Marty’s latest bird is named Baby Blue. He’s a hyacinth macaw, that’s 22 years old.


The Aviary

My sister-in-law’s brother has an aviary in his suburban home. He has dozens of birds, many tropical like his eclectus parrots. Eclectus parrots have vivid coloring. The males are green, the females red. They live in different parts of the jungle and look so different that scientists only recently figured out that they were the same species.


He’s upgraded his aviary since our last visit. He’s added a seating area so people can sit and view the birds while sipping a drink or chatting.


His wife isn’t keen on birds, but has grown to tolerate them. Kudos to her as not everyone would.
