Yellow Nap Amazon losing feathers
by: Linda

If you have a new bird, you should take him to be examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your driving area. New birds sometimes have infections which have to be diagnosed by Avian Vet before they can be treated.

Your bird is called a Yellow Nape Amazon and thanks for writing,

Bird losing feathers and regurgitating
by: Tracie

Yes it is normal for a bird to lose feathers when molting and it is normal for birds to regurgitate.

If your bird is losing feathers so that you see a bald spot, then this is NOT normal and you need to Find an Avian Vet to examine the bird to rule out infection, illness or disease.

If your bird throws up undigested food, then this is not normal either. Again, you will need to take the bird to an avian vet if your bird has undigested food coming up.
