Hi, I have a 16 year old panama named Skeeter that I adopted, just shy of 1 year ago. Bonding with her took some time but was well worth it and we still have a ways to go. Right now, however, we have a little glitch that I am not sure how to handle. Every time I pet her, or go to take her out of her cage she starts panting and making little humming noises with her tail in the air, which is obvious to me that she is in a nesting mood. I am "guessing" I have been chosen as her "mater"? A friend of mine with macaws told me to give her some time and not encourage it so not give her scritches, how long will this go on and is this the best way to handle it, I feel awful only "talking and singing" to her, it's been a good 3 weeks at this point. She has no paper to shred, and I've shortened day time for her to try to stop the behavior as well.
I adopted Rocky when he was about a year old and have had him for three years. He was a very frightened bird when he came to live with us but with a lot of patience and love he now trusts us and is very loving. Rocky is a Panama Amazon and everyone has said how talkative their bird is BUT Rocky has never tried to mimic any words. He can mimic the car alarm and he will occasionally laugh if we are laughing but he has never talked. We interact with him all day because we are retired and he gets a lot of attention but he doesn't seem interested in talking. He has free run of the house and will go all over the house. He loves young girls with blond hair and he doesn't like men at all. We love him and think he's great. We wonder if there anything we can try to get him to talk. We have tried treats and recorders and constantly repeating ourselves, but nothing has worked. We love him whether he talks or not, but everything we have read says they are great talkers.
My parrots name is dill. He just turned a year old this month. He is a very good talker. He loves to sing to oldies music.
He has managed to learn everyone in the house's names and we live with 9 other people, 5 dogs, and two cats.
Funny thing is my bird's name is dill but he calls me dilly O. But I still enjoy him and he says dilly O more than any other name, so I know I am his favorite.
He loves to be held and hung upside down. He loves to cuddle and have his neck and back rubbed. I am so glad I got this bird. He was expensive but oh my gosh he was worth every penny.
My Panama is named "Sam" (we are not sure if he is male or female). We got him at about 3 months. He is the sunshine in our day! He talks up a storm and laughs with everyone in the household. He learned to talk very young and continues to learn new words, phrases and even a song...."I feel Pretty". We are overjoyed with him. He is as kind as he is smart. He even sleeps with my husband every Saturday morning for an hour or two! He just snuggles up, rests his head on his arm and naps! He is not just a pet...but a member of our family!
I have just been given one of these beautiful birds from a dear old friend who could no longer take care of her. Lydia is going to be 47 years old this year. My friends bought her around 1960 while they were being held hostage in Panama. They were in the military and Lydia has traveled around the world. This bird has a tremendous vocabulary and keeps us laughing. Angie from Rockport Texas.
Buddy is our red-headed Panama Amazon. He was mamed and has only one wing, so he doesn't fly. We adopted him after he was brutalized by Hilario, the former owner. He knows many naughty words in Spanish and he uses them at just the right time. He loves white process cheese, sunflower seeds, and he is extremely intelligent and affectionate.
My family has cared for two panama-amazons now for 33 years. Peter Pan and Captain Cook have an extensive vocabulary and continue to pick up new wonderful sounds and words. They love fresh fruits and vegetables but never pass up a chance to eat from our plates either. Their intelligence never ceases to amaze me. Amazons make amazing pets and family members.
I have 3 yellow head amazons. Paris who is 19 years old, Kobe and Berlin are 3 years old. Their vocabulary is very extensive, as follows: Good morning, how are you today?, I love you, llego lo m
MY NAME IS ELISEO AND i FELL IN LOVE WITH MY PANAMA-AMAZON BUDDIE. HER NAME IS NEMO-BIRD.(strange for a female). I TOOK OVER HER WHEN A FRIEND COULD NOT KEEP HER ANYMORE. SHE IS 17 YEARS NOW AND IS STILL AS CHILD-LIKE AND PLAYFUL AS EVER. I MISS HER VERY MUCH.(divorce) THEY ARE IN EVERY WAY THE BEST AND MOST AFFECTIONATE OF AMAZONS I HAVE COME IN CONTACT WITH. THINKING OF GETTING A BUDDY OF YOU OWN? MARK MY WORD - "YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT". AND IF YOU HAVE ONE THAN YOU KNOW I SPEAK THE TRUTH. ENJOY EVERYONE!
I bought my yellow head amazon in Panama in 1975! He is in excellent health, he is funny, and he laughs like a human. His name is Loro. His favorite foods are scrambled eggs, green vegies, and corn on the cob. He loves to chew chicken bones to sharpen his beak.
I take him every six month to the Vet for a check-up. He has a long list of words and sentences. He is a happy go lucky bird.
