This is a beautiful video but the comments under the video were very enlightening. I had no idea they bonded only with 1 person and can live as long as 80 years.

This bird is beautiful.

oh yes they bond and when the bond is broken through death it is really hard on the bird . I'm allergic to caged birds and gave my birds to my sister who took my grandmothers bird when she passed . However the harlequin macaw that my grandmother had died three weeks after she did and the avian vet did a neocropsy and said he could find nothing that would have caused the death so we figured he died of a broken heart .

I had a pet Hyacinth Macaw who was just as affectionate. They are absolutely incredible companion birds and have wonderful personalities, especially when hand-raised. They are like small children and closely bond with their owners.

Strange to think that they can open a Brazil nut with their beak in only one crunch and can be so gentle and affectionate at the same time.
