I agree.

Though I own a blue-fronted amazon (and from what I hear all amazons have big personality differences from the other amazons), I will say that he is a great bird, a beautiful friend, a wonderful singing companion and a thousand other great things but, yes, he has his crazy, angry, just-being-a-wild animal moments where you have to take cover, find a wooden perch to pick him up and pray for the best. I wouldn't trade any of my time with my buddy in for anything. So keep having fun, learning about your friend and taking care of him/her.

You have a Double Yellow Headed Amazon Parrot. I put the description on your photo.

Amazon parrots are very strong headed and can go through a hormonal stage where you can not even hold the bird, possibly for a few years. Please read up on Amazon parrot body language. We have some DVD's and books on caring for birds that you can purchase and you can do research on the Internet too that will help you with learning about these birds.

We have some training and health material on our Parrot Training page you might also want to look at. Especially read the Switching Birds To Pellets article so that your bird will live a long healthy life. The bird may outlive you, so you will need to have someone in mind that can get to know your bird and be willing to take your bird in case you pass on before the bird.

These are great, fun birds. I hope you take the time to learn about them so that you will be able to enjoy this wonderful bird! Thanks for writing. :-)
