Keith Patton shows off his green-winged macaw to the Angstmann family of Minster during a recent outing at East Bank State Park in St. Marys. The children, Allison, 9, left, Evan, 3, and Erika, 10, were drawn to the big bird and its magnificent colors, they said. Patton often takes the bird to area festivals and plans to attend the 2008 Governor's Cup Regatta beginning the weekend of Aug. 22.
