Meet Sarge Military and Scooby Blue and Gold Macaw

This pair came from a legal confiscation situation so we do not know their ages. There were 6 macaws (3 pairs) in the group and they have been affectionately referred to as the 6-Pack. We're grateful to the Parrot Posse for their help with food and toys!

They are absolutely flourishing in their foster home, and very much enjoying healthy whole foods (tangerines, apples, blueberries, and vegetables hidden in their Landing Mash), Harrison’s Pepper Lifetime Coarse, Lafeber Fruit Pellets, and Nutri-berries. Mash is their favorite!

Like many captive parrots, both have some feather destructive behavior; but they have been fully vetted and are now on a very positive healthy path forward.

Sarge the military loves to be sprayed until dripping wet. Scooby the blue and gold prefers to bathe in the water bowl.

Sarge loves to jabber like she’s chewing somebody out. Her favorite phrase is “alright, get back to work!” Scooby hasn’t spoken yet, but loves to dance and bark like a dog.

Trust takes time, and we should never expect to come between a bonded pair. It's important to have appropriate expectations and understand natural behaviors! But if you can just appreciate them as is, they will entertain you with their magical macaw-ness. We don't need to touch birds to consider them a joy and real addition to our lives. However, with all large parrots, be prepared for the costs of food, toys, and vet work - these are essential ingredients to their quality-of-life and a must for anyone wanting a bird.

Before we can discuss a specific bird with you, we ask that you follow our adoption process. Some birds are in foster homes that may adopt them, many other birds are waiting for our help and are not yet posted in PetFinders. The adoption coordinator in your area will work with you to find the best home for each bird, and a species and personality that works best for your family too. We want to set everyone up for success, especially our parrots.

To get started, the adoption process includes completing our parrot match application and attending one of our core classes. You can find information about this process on our website at

AREAS OF OPERATION: Phoenix Landing serves only Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, and northeast Florida. We do not ship birds. However, everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us for our online events. Parrots are unique and they deserve us to be informed caretakers. There are also many past event recordings available which you may find helpful. All event information can be found at

Thanks for helping parrots!
