wE HAVE A DOUBLE YELLOW NAPED AMAZON PARROT HERE AT WORK THAT WAS LEFT FOR US TO "BIRD SIT" AND NOW HE IS A PERMANENT FIXTURE. i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW YOU CAN TELL HIS AGE. i BELIEVE HE IS AN ADULT AND SEEMS TO LIKE ME BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. HE ALSO GOES TO THE BOTTOM OF HIS CAGE AT TIMES AND GETS A FUNNY LOOK ON HIS FACE AND FLUFFS OUT HIS TAIL FEATHERS AND WALKS WITH HIS BUTT UP AND BEAK DOWN. iS THIS MATEING BEHAVIOR?

You can not tell the age by looking, and if it is a female it could be breeding behavior. Amazons sometimes get grumpy when in breeding mode. Reduce daytime light to where they get 12 - 14 hours of darkness and this will sometimes stop breeding behaviour.
