I have a Double Yellowhead Amazon. We got him when he was about 4 or 5, he's about 36 years old now. He doesn't talk but he can get his point across by yelling and throwing food. He likes to watch TV and will yell if the other pets misbehave.

Anything good about your Amazon?

He's very entertaining but parrots are a lot of work. I love him very much but if I would have realized how destructive and how much work goes in to having a parrot I probably wouldn't have bought him.

He will chew on the furniture and anything wood. I saw some beautiful antique furniture at an auction once and all the ornamental scroll work on the front had been chewed by their parrot. It's a long term commitment because they live a long time.

Easily solved. Just watch them carefully when they are at the house. And, build a big outdoor cage for them in the backyard. Problem solved.

Blue Fronted Amazons are so cool though.

We had a double yellow head for a while. Found him in the yard. He was super sweet. Sang opera, sang Blue moon from beginning to end, called the dog, mimmiced the telephone and the microwave, whistled tunes, said his name and about two dozen phrases (including: "Whoo Baby, you are a hot mamma!"). He was sweet, affectionate, and chattered away non stop all day. He was very quiet at night, but at first sign of the sun - "Whooo Baby you are one hot mamma!"

Unfotunately we eventaully found his owner. He was a fabulous bird. We enjoyed every minute he was with us.

We have a Red Lore Amazon. Rio is a wonderful sweet bird. Although, she can be very loud. Rio is about a year old and her vocab is growing every day. She will say something or whistle something new everyday. She is quite funny too. Love to watch her play she is really funny when she gets mad at her toys. She is my husbands bird and when she sees him she gets excited. She will whistle and cooo at him too.
