Amazons parrots are outgoing and intelligent birds that are known collectively to be good talkers. They are medium to large parrots that form strong bonds with their owners and enjoy the companionship of their human family members. Amazons are generally broad and sturdily built parrots with primarily green coloration and short, rather rounded tails. Most species need to be DNA tested to determine gender, but the Yellow-lored and White-fronted Amazon do exhibit differences in appearance between males and females.
They are Commonly known as
Double yellow-headed Amazons (yellow-headed Amazons), yellow-naped Amazons, yellow fronted Amazons, blue-fronted Amazons, orange-winged Amazons, green cheeked Amazons, Panama Amazons, white-fronted Amazons (spectacled Amazons), Mealy Amazons, red lored Amazons, and Lilac-crowned Amazons
Amazons range from about 10 to 20 inches in length from beak to tail. They are medium to large sized parrots.
All species of Amazon parrots are long-lived as most large birds are. You can expect a healthy Amazon to live around 50 years or even longer with good nutrition and care.
Origin of Amazon Parrot
They are native to the New World ranging from South America to Mexico and the Caribbean.
Amazon Parrots are extremely intelligent and playful birds that love being the center of attention.
They are considered good talkers, however, some species of Amazon Parrots talk more than others like double yellow headed, yellow napped and blue fronted.
Amazon Parrots can be quite noisy. They can be good screamers, though not as loud as cockatoos or macaws.
By nature, Amazon Parrots are energetic, playful, social and are endowed with remarkable talking Skills. Though sometimes moody, these birds are loyal and loving companions. They love interacting with their owners and can be extremely adorable and amusing. However, their temperamental nature sometimes makes them irritable, jealous, stubborn or even loud. To avoid this they should be given required attention as given to other homely pets like cats or dogs. Inexperienced bird owners should not take up training an Amazon Parrot. It is important to be patient with Amazons while training them.
Feeding the Amazon Parrot
Your Amazon bird should eat both pelleted bird food and healthy, fresh fruits, vegetables. Seeds are too high in fat for Amazons and while they can be fed as treats, they should make up no more than 10 percent of the whole diet. Nuts are a good treat but should only be fed in moderation.
Caring for Amazon Parrots
An Amazon parrot needs a cage. Included in the cage should be toys and swings that are very spread out, as well as a play gym/play tree, climbing rope, or ladders to scale. This will all encourage movement and exercise. The minimum cage size should be 24 inches by 36 inches and 48 inches tall, with bar spacing of 3/4 to 1 inch.
