Good Evening Everyone.
Thanks for letting me join. I am new to owning a harlequin macaw named Wiley. My husband received the bird last year from an owner who could no longer care for her. I know nothing of her previous owners, but we are told she is 17 years old. She just moved in my home a few weeks ago.
I sure could use some advice. I do not know much about her and the library does not have any books dedicated to macaws. She is a biter. I have begun giving her foraging baskets and have created a second perch for her. So far it has been 2 days and she has not bit so I am hopeful there.
Any ideas and suggestions? I am a quick study when my brain is working right. I have had a brain injury so my short term memory is none existent. I do take good notes and remember more of what I read then what I hear so I have hope I can learn to be a better owner so she can live out her life as happy as she deserves.
