Butt in my face

Well, depending on age and sex of your Macaw it can mean a couple of things. If bird is female and you are male and the bird is over 6-7 years old, this could be breeding display. If bird is either younger than that or you are a female, it could just be play activity.

If you don't like the behavior, then just say a gentle but firm NO and put bird either on or in cage or on an outside perch. Repetition will have some impact after a while. Do not lose your temper EVER with your bird and do some reading on Macaw behavior both as young birds and sexually mature ones. Parrots are as the bottom line Exotic Wild Animals not domestic ones, so behaviors will pattern after their wild counterparts. Thanks for writing,
Linda
