I have always wanted a Military Macaw or a Blue one and I live in south Texas where it could live outdoors most of the year. I love their personality. But at my age I would not want to bond with a bird that could outlive me by another 50 years. It woulnt be fair to the bird.

Parrotts

The bird in the first post is a yellow naped Amazon parrott. We have two of those, plus a red lored amazon, plus a blue front amazon.

One of our past boats was named AMAZON DOT CALM. We had profile pictures of each bird posted on the transom along with the boat name.

Never brought the birds on the boat, though, the noise would be unbelievable.

Sounds like Captain Bligh is fine, though, not all parrotts squawk!

Parrotts

Calm down...
I concur that noise by people or pets is rude and uncalled for.
There are bad parents and animal owners everywhere and they suck.

We have an African Grey that LOVES her cage inside our trawler and stays in her cage when we are underway. I would never put her in danger. She is quiet in our cabin and does not squawk. (OK- she mimics a few alarms, but mostly just talks) I don't think it's "MEAN" to leave a house pet in it's cage...we have another cage outside at our home for her to enjoy nature, but enjoy it SAFELY.

Our puppy is trained...and does not bark. So chill out please. For many of us who love our pets, boating is a way to travel with them without having to put them in a kennel for boarding.

If you really want to vent, vent at the a-holes who rock our trawlers with no clue what a slow pass is about. Now that is rude, careless and downright dangerous.

I have a Norwegian Blue onboard. Lovely plumage! Seems as if it always pining for the fjords, however...

Can appreciate your...sensitivity...to the issue. I don't think anyone is talking about responsible pet owners such as yourself. I find most are exactly that but it only takes one out of 20 with an out of control barking dog in an anchorage. As for the parrot, good for you. They do enjoy their cages and being out as well. What I meant about "mean" is someone who keeps one in a cage below decks 24/7. Don't think that is very kind to the bird at all!

Ah, the delightful Norwegian Blue.With an unusual attachment to its perch,no doubt. And so quiet for a parrot....

Same squawking less poop? She puts in the appropriate place, at least. Cat follows us into adult litter box. Wants people to go with her.
