While wandering through the Pirate Festival at Westport, Washington (USA), we noticed this gentleman with a beautiful macaw. He would let others hold the bird for a few minutes, then move the bird on to the next person. I’m not sure holding the bird was this little fellow’s idea. While the bird looks quite content with the situation, I don’t think the little fellow was sure it was such a good idea!! He doesn’t look too convinced to me!! LOL!!

    Looks like he is saying “Get that bird off me”. LOL Nice shot.

  • Yup…that’s pretty much what I thought too!! I suspect he was trying really hard to be a big boy about it…but still looking to mom to help him out of the situation!! LOL!!

    Great capture Teresa, he doesn’t look too happy with it all, might have been a bit sharp on the bare arm, gorgeous bird though.

  • Thanks so much Gabrielle!! Yes, that’s my thought too…They do pinch in pretty hard with those claws to keep their balance!
