You are welcome! I have a pet macaw at home, also a small species; yellow-collared macaw. She is 21 yrs old, and a spoiled rotten brat. LOL Definitely not a pet for everyone. They are loud, potentially destructive, and need lots of one-on-one attention.

The bare patch of skin on the face told me "macaw"! And what a cutie he is! Nice find!

I have no idea, maybe a Brown-throated Parakeet (Eupsittula pertinax)...!
