Our family recently aquired a male Orange Winged Amazon named Gonzo. He came from a breeder who owned another bird that had come from a shelter. The other bird has taught Gonzo to bark like a little dog both loudly and quietly as if imitating a dog that is outside. It is so funny. He is 8 months old and is now imitating the wolf call whistle and will bark like a dog when he wants attention. He is extremely loveable and a wonderful addition to our family. He is a little jealous of our cherry headed conure but I am sure that will pass in time. His favorite treats are pistachios and Almonds in the shell.

Six months ago we adopted a 15 year old Blue Amazon named Patrick. He was not abused, but was also not really socialized and almost never left his cage. Now he travels all over the house, takes occasional rides on my shoulder and loves to be kissed and scritched. I am thankful to his old family who realized that he needed more attention and gave him to us. I am also thankful for my wife Lisa and her infinate patience with all of our 4 parrots.

Scoopers was rescued from a breeder that had her paired with another female for a decade or more. Her lower jaw was broken earlier in life but she does very well despite the offset. She is the sweetest most gregarious amazon I've ever seen.

i have had a 10 month old orange winged amazon for a week now and i personally think it is one of the most affectionate birds ever! It acts like a baby cockatoo and loves to be held by anyone who will hold it. If you get a baby hand fed orange winged amazon you are most definitely in for a treat! already says hello and has only been here for a week! HIGHLY recommended bird!

It's nice to hear from a few others who have had the pleasure of having a white fronted as a companion. I had a 11 yr. old. She recently passed, reason unknown. Her actions spoke louder than words. What a little lover she was, my very best friend and we were always together. I will have another one(female)in breeding season. I agree with the first comment on this page, I too would like to compare with the subspecies. L Harner 12/20/2005

We have owned our double yellow headed amazon for twelve years. His head is entirely yellow and so is named Sonny. He has the funniest personality and is the baby of the family. He can be tempermental at times but with a little food incentive (He loves to eat; especially french fries--he begs more than our dogs!)he is easily trained. He doesn't fly but enjoys piggy back rides on the family labradors. He keeps us laughing non-stop.

I've had my Mexican Red Head for over 30 years. I call him Tony Baloney and he's from Guadalajara. He doesn't talk much, but whistles and makes cute sounds. I'm the only one that can play with him. My husband is patient and tries though! Very loud when he want's attention! I love him to pieces! He loves apples,carrots,corn and beans along with his seeds and nuts.

I think Louis is Yellow-Crowned not Double Yellow Head, isn't that right. Double Yellow head have their whole head yellow, Louis hasn't that. (Note from Editor: Loius is a juvenile Double Yellow-headed Amazon. He will get a full yellow head as he reaches maturity.)

I have a 6-year old White Front (of the nominate species Amazona albifrons albifrons). He is a joyous little man and loves to swing and play. He speaks quite well, and his favorite vocalizations include "Whatcha doing? Well, Hello! Hi! Step up! Arrreeba!" While he can't quite pronounce the G's in his name, George W, he doesn't let that stop him from announcing in his sing-song voice the rest of his name, "Or".
I would like to see this webpage contain the 2 subspecies of White-Fronted Amazon with their pictures for comparison. This would include the Lesser White Front (Amazona albifrons nana) and the Sonora White Front (Amazona albifrons saltuensis). I think it would be helpful for those who do not know exactly what species of White-Front they own, and it would be interesting to compare their pictures and characteristics.
