Our Flock: Our Avatar Princess Tara

A DNA sexed female, Princess Tara is a three and one-half pound Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) the offspring of Duke and Duchess. Princess Tara was hatched in June of 1999. She is the quintessential zen parrot, for her love of yoga, bells, and music. She wants to be a Salvation Army bell ringer when she grows up, and believe me, she can keep time with those bells! A lady of few words, she does say the sultriest Hello you will ever hear! She can be a bit of a bully with her size and weight, but she's also the classic Hyacinth cuddle bear. The Hyacinth macaw beak can be pretty intimidating! One-third of a Hyacinth macaw's muscle mass is in its head, so she has the equipment. Tara also loves bouncing and wrestling. The story of the ugly duckling comes to mind with Tara, the tomboy who doesn't realize just how exceptionally beautiful she is!
