38 year old Squeaking Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot
by Sharron Benda
(Green Forest, AR. USA)
I have a 38 year old Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot that my Son and I have had since it's birth. We do not know the sex, but call it a male. We have never had any other birds with him.
The problems are that he sits over his food dish 2 or 3 times a day and squeaks loudly for a few minutes, fluffs it's feathers and then stops.
He is also tearing up the papers in the bottom of the cage. He has all kinds of toys and a large cage so I really don't know what the problem is he seems to be happy for he talks all of the time.
Why he is squeaking, and why is he tearing up the paper? Can anyone help with these questions, please?
