5 Month Yellow-Collard Macaw

We just brought home a 5 month old Yellow-Collard Macaw and I noticed that when I'm holding him, and he is nibbling at my fingers, his one wing twitches??? It is like a jerking motion.

Also, he seems to like the microwave popcorn is this safe for him?

Microwave Popcorn for birds
by: The Vet

The wing twitch is normal for a young macaw. It is like saying “I like what is happening to me or around meâ€.

Microwave popcorn is safe. In fact you should try the flavored popcorn for birds - like Tweety Pop Pineapple popcorn that Tracie sells on this site.
