What are you most proud of? This bird turned out exactly as I had envisioned. The wings were made 3 different times, changing size, color, and order of stripes, and the tail was a real challenge to get right, but it finally ended up as I had hoped.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience, and experience in crocheting amigurumi. It will not be a speedy project, and requires assembling the macaw and branch with wire.
