Yes Macaw,s are excellent divers and catch lots of fish in the Amazon. They are very smart, all you have to do is train him. You can start by holding his head under water in a bucket. He will get the idea. Put a piece of flounder belly in the bucket so that his aulfactory nerves smell the fish. This will trigger its twitch muscles and he will instinctivly dive for the fish. You may have to do this several times, but man does it work.Good luck.
