I believe all birds should be cared for the same way. you always have to buy them new toys, feed them the right things, give them a lot of exersise, and pay much attention to them. you need to love and care for them. my bird is in love with me and we are best friends!

Hi my name is Will and i have a yellow naped amazon, her name is Kiwi and she is lots of fun. Early in the morning when she wakes up she starts calling me or my girl MAMA! until we wake up, and as soon as we wake up and she sees us she says HI KIWI WAKE UP and then after she greets us with that. she starts to ask how we are doing and that shes a crazy bird when she hangs upside down in her cage. right now she is 3 1/2 years old and she is a wounderful bird to have and to be with.

I have a 45 year old Orange-Winged Amazon. His name is Fred he was my grandparents bird but he bonded to me about 5 days after i met him. They were moving and he came to stay with us until they were settled in but since he took to me and our landlord made an exception on the no animal rule, i got to keep him. He's quite noisy and only friendly with me and my brother, he bites at everyone else.

It was "love at first sight" when I saw my orange-winged Amazon in the pet store. The workers were amazed with how quickly he warmed up to me. Needless to say, I fell in love and frequently visited him in the pet store. In February, I entered the store to see a "Sold" sign on his cage...my mom bought him for me as my college graduation gift! Ben is a happy, healthy, and spoiled 8 year old Amazon. He loves to wake the whole family up at 6 am for his breakfast and a scratch on the head and then proceeds to take a nap once everyone else is awake. I could never imagine my life without Ben. He brings smiles to the faces of everyone in my family, whether by whistling at my mom when she enters the room, barking when the dog barks, and begging to be let out of his cage with the words "Come on, come on." I was told that parrots choose their owners, and I couldn't be happier that Ben chose me!

this is our first experience with a amazon. we learn everyday something new everyday. i have found that s/he likes to be next to my cockietiel(spelling) and is happy to talk to him. s/he is just a year old and already saying a few things that s/he learned from moe the cockietel. if we don't talk to him when coming in he will squawk until we do. he has to be the center of attention. robin

I have two Green-Cheeked amazons, Lalo and Paco. Although, judging by their behaviour(it's spring time)now I think now that Lalo is really a girl so I need to call her something else. I am going to get a nesting box just in case. I teach in Mexico and got the birds from a student so I don't know what sex they are. Lalo is the more affectionate of the two. Paco, much like Lolita of the first writer's comment, likes to laugh at me after nipping. I thought that he was the only bird to do that. They both let us know when it's time for dinner by yelling "Karla" (my wife, but the interesting thing is that I am the one that feeds them! They have an array of whistles and say "hello", "cotorro", "cotorrito","Karla" and chatter in a way that is distinctly un-parrot but not really understandable as either Spanish or English.

We have a 6 year old Double Yellow Head named Ziggy. We purchased him from a breeder at the age of 10 months. He "chose" me from the moment I entered her shop.

I must say he has certainly made a difference in our lives. We would be lost without his daily antics. And yes he is bonded much more to me then to my husband but allows dad to be the taxi service from his cage or parrot stand in order to get to mom!

I highly recommend everyone do their research before acquiring any exotic bird. They can be a true joy but also one must be forever aware of their mood swings, reading their eyes & body language and understanding that this is a lifetime commitment. They are flock creatures and you and your family are now their flock & they insist upon being a part of the daily happenings.

As I'm typing this Ziggy is sitting on my leg awaiting a trip to the shower, then will sit in the bathroom window yelling out to anyone that walks by.....a hearty wolf whistle, followed by a sing songy heeelllooooo, followed by a cheerful Good Morningggggg, followed up by a pitiful bye byeeeee.

Yes, life in our household would be a great deal quieter without him... but also a lot less humorous.
