it stays that was as the days progress. She has the most beautiful colors I've ever seen on a macaw. My uncle has a greenwing and he is colorful but the yellow on her wings wins me over. She has a much better attitude than any of the blue and golds I've fostered before. Not so touchy. From what I've read that is abnormal for a scarlet to be well rounded and not nippy?

I've had the pleasure of seeing Scarlet macaws in the wild, another surreal experience, and they are also quite nippy with each other. The noisy conflicts that they seem to have look like fights to us and are something that I'm not quite sure I get just yet. It definately means something to them and I'll guess that nippiness is is a behavior that needs better understanding. That is, both in the wild and in our homes. Are they testing each others vigor as potential mates, squabbling over territory, showing off, playing?
I paid particular attention to one pair who flew from tree to tree together. Each time they landed they just proceeded to fight with each other. Back and forth nipping, shouting at each other loud enough to wake the dead, pusing each other. When one would knock the other off of a branch they'd both fly to a new one and repeat the whole thing.
