owning a Macaw

Hilarious SFGate interview with a Macaw owner. She got the bird as a teen, not knowing that they live for 80 years and... well...

Do you recommend macaws as a pet for anyone?

Gideon is a spoiled queen. She needs to be preened, she needs her nails done, her beak done, a nice warm shower once a week -- she needs to be loved unconditionally, or she screams. I recommend macaws only to very rich people with nerves of steel who don't mind a mess, are hard of hearing and have tons of time on their hands.
