My partner and I were webcaming with my Grandsons the other day and we showed them our Catalina Macaw called Hobbs. They thought he was a dragon, their favourite toy at the moment. I told my daughter that I had painted Hobbs a couple of years ago and she wanted to see the painting. Well here is Hobbs in all his glory. A Catalina Macaw is a cross between a Blue and Gold Macaw and a Scarlet Macaw. His colours really are magnificent. He adores my partner but would take a bite out of me if he could.

Thanks Pattie. You would be surprised how quickly cats learn to leave birds alone, one nip and they never go back. We put our cat in the other room when the birds are out of their cages.
