Nikki is a Blue and Gold Macaw (Ara ararauna) who has allowed us to share his space for several years. Nikki comes to us from the Hagen Avicultural Research Institute via Specht's Aquarium and Pets in Victoria, BC. Henry worked at Specht's before moving to PEI in hopes of attending the Atlantic Veterinary College.


Admittedly, Nikki is a feisty Macaw. Not the love and cuddle type of personality you see in many captive raised birds. But, with time and attention (LOTS of attention!), he is coming along nicely and has made a wonderful addition to our family. As long as he is sure the world revolves around his pretty little head, things are fine!
