Temperament

Playful and sweet, hand-fed green-cheeked Amazon parrots are good family pets that enjoy interacting with everyone. They are mild-mannered and appear content when they spend time with their handlers. They may join you while watching television or at the dinner table and are fans of handling and petting.

Curious and nosy, they are prone to mischief-making more than some other Amazon species. They may chew electrical wires around the house. Supervision and positive distractions are required when out of the cage.

While green-cheeked Amazons are known as comical, good-natured birds, some may go through a hormonal bluffing stage as they go through adolescence. This period can last for up to two years; the birds may become a little temperamental during this time. Be patient; it will pass.

Green-cheeked Amazons are not as independent or feisty as other Amazons, but they will have their moments of wanting to be left alone. Signs to watch for include the bird’s feathers fanning out and “blazing eye” constricting pupils.

Highly intelligent, they can quickly learn entertaining bird tricks, as well as words and phrases. They are also very noisy.

Speech and Vocalizations

Expect a loud 10-minute announcement every morning and evening. It’s in the bird’s nature to call out to its flock at those times. Many green-cheeked Amazons can become good talkers with consistent training. They are excellent mimics. Just be careful, as some individuals can get sassy, and owners have reported a little backtalk at times.
