Merlin, the Talking Parrot

Merlin is particularly fond of green grapes, peanuts, carrots, walnuts and yes, even crackers! He joined the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic during a Pets at Sea event in 2006.

Merlin, a ten year old Rainbow Macaw, joined the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic's crew during a Pets at Sea event in 2006. Merlin is particularly fond of green grapes, peanuts, carrots, walnuts and yes, even crackers!

Rainbows macaws are a hybrid, caused by cross-breeding the Scarlet and Golden Blue macaw. Since macaws can live to be 80 or 90 years old, you'll have plenty of chances to stop in for a visit.

Merlin is quite talkative and laughs and sneezes on a regular basis. "Cracker" and "Peek-a-boo" are a regular part of his vocabulary. He is usually willing to talk to people but is also quite happy to chat to himself, especially during the middle of the afternoon, when he sometimes has a nap.
