Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Aug 19, 2013
Our Blue Fronted Amazon came to us from a local rescue group after she had been abandoned by her previous owner. Her condition was poor, she had mites and had lost or plucked out most of her body feathers. It took many month of nursing before she was fit enough to be introduced to the other birds in the aviary. She bonded well with her caretakers and another Amazon that we had rescued, and became a favorite of visiting school children. They enjoyed her clownish antics and off key singing.
Both males and females make good companions, although males can become aggressive in the spring during mating season. Both sexes can learn extensive vocabularies and enjoy the attention the lessons bring.
