Sunny - A 39 Year Old Catalina Macaw

Sunny is a domestic macaw purchased when she was 5 y.o. from a previous owner who had put in a wood shoulder wedge so she could ride on his shoulder as he drove his motorcycle!!

A "catalina" is actually a hybrid macaw, meaning a cross of breeds which gives the orange breast feathers you see here.  

In the wild the life span of a macaw is approximately 6 - 8  years.  In captivity it's 80 - 90 years.
