HI TO ALL YOU PARROT LOVERS. I GOT MY FIRST ORANGE-WINGED AND HE IS JUST STUNNING. HE BARKS LIKE A DOG, WOLF WISTLES, AND ANSWERS THE PHONE BY MAKING THE NOISE OF ONE. JUST GREAT FUN TO HAVE AS A PET. I ALSO FIND THIS BREED OF PARROT VERY WASTEFUL, DROPS ALOT OF HIS FOOD AND TREATS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CAGE. DOES NOT LIKE TO BE HANDLED BUT WILL TAKE FOOD FROM YOUR HAND. I DO NOT KNOW HOW OLD HE IS....I KEEP SAYING HE AS HE DOES NOT LIKE HUMAN MALES ONLY FEMALES. HIS NAME IS LEO. WELL I THINK I HAVE SAID ENOUGH ABOUT MY BABY. BYE BE GOOD TO YOURSELF AND TO OTHERS...but most important be kind to your parrot.

We have a 4 year old male blue front amazon named JoJo. We are his second owner and his last. He is my husband's bird. He will only come to the rest of us if his "daddy" is not home and he would like some attention. He has quite the vocabulary, some not too good thanks to his previous owner. We have weeded out a lot of them by making sure he never hears the words again. He will tell us "night night" in the evening. He will also say tickle tickle, JoJo dirty bird, JoJo good bird, hello when the phone rings or he hears a knock at the door. When we come home he will call out "hello baby" to the point were my husband has thought I was home. He knows our vehicles to the point you hear him calling out hello and screeching before we are in the driveway. He has bonded with our quacker to the point that the quacker more or less shares his cage. He is only very friendly to others when he feels like it. His previous owner was a woman and I believe she was mean to him as it took him months to even take food from me. He is very much apart of our family even with the little attitude he has. That's what makes him our JoJo.

I bought my Orange-winged from a pet shop here in kuwait not knowing the age. her age from the eyes, it seems she must be older than 3 yrs. I have her for 11 months, she seems afraid all that time. just last week she stepped on my hand, good progress. she is quiet and in the morning she makes one long sound like starting an engine.

Thank you. Your site helped me identify a parrot I recently rescued. I knew it was a Amazon, now I know what type it is also.
Thank You. Looking forward to many years with my new best friend.

I have an Orange wing Amazon. Although I bought him untamed he soon understood I meant him no harm and will provide him with food and water. I studied animal behaviour and formed some of my own opinions about animal intelligence and habits. Within one year I had my "untame" Orange wing Amazon flying around my gardens in London City and coming back, totally free and at liberty for a day or more. This is a very, very brief account. I am not suggesting people to go out and open cage doors, because there is much observation and body languge to understand before allowing freedom and trust. Since parrots are a hundred times more intelligent than pigeons, it is not that surprising they understand "home" means food and protection, almost as a dog must think. I taught or brought out of my bird its natural instinct to return to its flock or partner (your family or you). That is why I think it is returning, it feels it is now a part of a new flock of humans. This is not a trick the bird does, nor is this the kind of thing homing pigeons do. This is a total act of trust and respect by both sides. It can not be done over night, and you must have a good relationship with your bird before hand and not be nervous. Because seeing a loose amazon up a tree next door does take some courage, trust me. The benifits are 1) If your amazon escapes, there is a good chance it will come back 2) If there are cats around then an escaped bird will be better positioned to survive. 3) The feeling of bonding can be no greater when a flying amazon returns home after flying free all day( and eating all the apples in the neighborhood.) My bird could only just be trusted to fly free and come back after a two year period. So it does not happen quickly, but the rewards were where I lost him three times and he came back three times. Before training my first observations were with a Monks parrot and an African Gray.

We've owned an orange winged amazon for 3 years (since it was 8 mo. old). This guy is GREAT with children and loves to play with legos or any other toy it can pull apart. He is very loving and quite playful. He has just started screeching when he wants to be included or when it's noisy. We call him the bird that acts like a cat and feels like a dog.

I bought Leesa about 15 years ago. So mean I couldn't even stick my hand in the cage to feed her. but once I told her who was in charge, and established boundaries, she been great. I guess whoever owned her before, just let her fly around the house. (not a good idea). Now, she's my girl.
she doesn't talk well but she makes up for it with a really cute (protective) dog like personality. We have a special bond and she hasn't bitten in about 10 years, well not me anyway. we've been through a lot together and I can't imagine my mornings without her sweet little voice coming from behind the covered cage. this type of bird seems to just go with the flow, nothing really upsets these guys, moving and changing, adding pets to the family, and Leesa stays the same.
