I have a blue fronted amazon, a senegal parrot, and a pastel peached face love bird. My amazon treats the other two as if they were his off-spring, and he is always feeding them. It really is something to see this bird interact with the other birds and myself. Swoop is his name and he has over a 50 word vocabulary and he is only 2 yrs old. Truly they are amazing birds, and I love mine as if it were a child.

I have had my Double Yellow Headed Amazon for 7 yrs. His name is TUT. He is estimated to be 39 yrs.old. He follows me everywhere I go when he gets on the floor. When I sit on the couch, he gets on the back of it and he grooms my hair. Or takes out the ornamentations I may have in it! He gives me kisses and cuddles up to me. Although he may have his bad habits at times, I could not ask for a better partner in life! I love the way he talks,laughs,and sings.

Double Yellow Headed Amazons are a great companion, but to understand and co-exist with this species you must understand they must have their personal space. They have a "bubble" that surrounds them and if you understand and respect the amazon quirks these parrots can be a great companion. At least in my expereiance.

I too rescued a young red cheek from a "bag lady peddler" type of woman. She had him in a dish drain covered with screen. The bird could not stand up to see his size. I fell in love when he said "hello" to me. The bird did not have all the colors covering the face and head so I assumed the bird was young. When I realized the bird ate with the foot holdng the peanut I knew the bird was
awesome. I called him Jimbo after my husband Jim. He loves mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, chicken legs and especially pizza. He is my friend forever and goes to no-one but me, so he will be mine for
ever, 6-years now and going. It would be a good idea to give yours lots of love. I hear they are near extinction for lack of breeding. Keep in touch. JC

I have rescued three Green Cheeked Amazons, they were only a few days old when my husband found them at work. He thought they had died so he left them alone, they next day they were still alive and the parents were nowhere in sight. He brought them home and we have saved their little lives. They are going on 4 weeks old now. This is my first experience with hand feeding birds. Actually these are our first pets! If anyone else has had experience raising these types of Amazons I would love to communicate. I have some questions that concern me about their behavior. A few times in the morning they will hiss at me and snap. Maybe they are hungry. Feedings stop at 9:30pm until 6:00am. Or maybe they are scared. Who knows. They are very lovable and love to have their heads rubbed. I am now teaching them how to perch, soon will start weaning foods and moving them into a cage. Anyone with advice or experience can email me at Brandy6755@hotmail.com

Seeing this picture reminds me of my first parrot- obtained in 1968 when I was 14 years old. What a great friend, wonderful pet it was! Certainly it was a captured bird, and had spent time on a farm in its native land. It never talked a word, but had a full repetoire of farm animal sounds, from "quack" to rooster crows, dog barking, cow mooing, etc. I had the great imagination (not!) to name the bird Quack. He needed no training, but was tame from day one. Would lay on his back in my hand, ride the handle bars of my bicycle, "read" books with me, obligingly puncturing the right front corner of each page as turned. With Quack I never needed a bookmarker! His attempts at human speech were mumbles more than articulations. The bird had a built-in clock. He ONLY screamed when he knew I was due home from school. Often, as I walked the last block to home that was when the bird set up his raucous scream- to be let out of the cage and be with me.
