I own a blue and gold macaw.. They require a lot of attention.. They can be loud when neglected.. I live in Florida and it is cold at night. I bring my bird in at night when it gets cold.. My macaw is a rescued bird. It has taken me a while to work with him. He did a lot of screaming when I first got him. He is much better now with a lot of work. It sounds like this bird Is not getting the attention he needs. The fact that she just recently moved this bird into a new environment can cause stress on a bird but they should know this.. I feel bad for this bird

call animal control a bird should not be kept out side when it is cold . birds systems are very delicate as you should know . Yes like it or not call animal control because some people are stupid and don't know any better . You could ask if she really wants the bird and if she says no tell her you have a friend that would love the bird and then if she gives it to you find it a decent home where they really want it . Good luck .

Considering the OP is from 4 years ago, the problem has most likely been resolved.

Unfortunately no. Its still out there and I've just put up with it. I'm thinking about selling my house this summer and am going to have yet another talk with that woman over her bird. I hope she'll cooperate when the house is being shown and cover it or bring it in to shut it up. I'm going to have to disclose it on any sales contract. Neighbors suck.

yeah I mean why did you not call animal control it is a wonder that bird is not dead . My older sister went to see a house for sale once and the neighbor right next door had two scarlet macaws and those things were so loud my sister called it quits after a year of living there . she always said if that thing ever gets out there wont be one lil dog in the neighborhood left . LOL. my sister took a loss on the sale price of her house just be aware you might not get asking price for your house if some buyers hear that bird going off .

Seriously, 5 years later.

You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. If you've never called animal control you are part of the problem. These birds can live to be quite elderly....so if this is let go this bird could live like this for decades.

They've kept it outdoors (backyard) from the spring through summer. Its VERY loud. They rarely interact with it and it screams, screeches and squawks all day long. At night they put it in the garage. Its finally turning cold and last night we had our first frost. I notice this morning when the temp was no more than 48-50F they already had placed it on its perch in the backyard (our backyards face north - shaded almost all the time now). I was hoping with colder weather they'd keep it indoors (so I could at least get a break from the noise for a few months), but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I've talked with them about the noise, but they refuse to do anything about it. I really don't want to call the SPCA (that's our only agency for animal complaints in this town), but now there's this large tropical bird in pretty cold conditions and its seems even more agitated. Is what they're doing cruel? I admit, this post is partly for selfish reasons since the bird is very loud and I can't even open a window for fresh air with the aural assault! Its louder than any of the neighborhood dogs!

You can to the Macaw out of the wild, but you can't take the wild out of the macaw.

The things that the OP is complaining about are part of the bird's natural instincts/behaviors.
