Macaw Handler

Hello everybody. I don't currently own any birds but I have had three Cockatiels in the past. I am, however trying to catch a loose 'Tiel that's been hanging with the pigeons for a few weeks. I've gotten him to come with 4 feet of me so far so it should be easy to catch him/her once I get my cage back (long story but a friend has it).

I'm not missing out on having birds though because for my job, I play with Macaws all day. I care for the birds, put them on people's shoulders, and take quick portraits with the people and Macaws on them.

We have two Military's, three Blue and Gold's, a Green Wing, a Harlequin, and two Catalina's. I will post pics when I can. One of the Cat's and one of the Mili's I'm trying to get the company's breeder (which they rent them from) to give them to me once they retire. We fell in love with each other and I couldn't imagine leaving them there once I leave the job.

I love my job because I get to spend all day with these guys. It's also helping me with my future career which is to be a professional pet photographer.

I will keep you guys posted on when I catch the 'Tiel and about my Macaws antics at work. I have some funny stories about them.
