    Hi Jennifer;

    If you go to this site:

    It is a macaw chat - and - if you post your picture on
    there - there will be many that will welcome your post as
    well as help you in distinguishing what breed of Macaw you

    Looking forward to seeing your post & picture of your baby
    real soon. Remember scarlet's don't have any red feathers on
    their face. As a matter of fact it looks like they don't
    have any hair on their face.
