Rio The Red Fronted Macaw (Ara rubrogenys)

About Rio

Rio is the older brother of Merlin and Chaco. He was born June 1st, 2001. His owners recently lost their home and had to give him up so we took him in. He had previously been in two homes prior to his last owners, hopefully we will be his fourth and last home. Rio was clearly well treated and is an affectionate and friendly bird. Rio's particular cuteness is that he face rubs like a cat does. Much like Chaco and Merlin Rio can be harnessed and enjoys walks.
