This tropical parrot (Amazona auropalliata) is a charming, sweet bird with an angry giant hidden within. Mostly found in Costa Rica, El Salvator, Guatemala, yellow-naped Amazons are one of the best talkers and are loved by bird lovers. The extrovert birds love being the center of attraction and make a fuss when ignored.
Personality & Behavior
Yellow Naped Amazon Parrots are wonderful as young birds, but tend to become nippy, even outright aggressive as they get older, particularly the males, though individual birds vary. They are notorious for temperament changes, and will attack their owners viciously. Females tend to remain sweeter, so you might want to consider a hen when making your purchase. This may not be a bird for children, as a bite from a yellow nape’s beak is formidable. But don’t let this daunt you — they have wonderful pet potential, and they are certainly a popular choice for many reasons. If you notice a temperament change, simply take precautions that you don’t get hurt, or hurt the bird either.
Care & Feeding on Yellow Naped Amazon Parrots
All Amazons have a tendency toward becoming couch potatoes, sitting around all day, eating starchy foods. But there are consequences for an obese bird: fatty tumors and a greatly reduced life span. Yellow-napes are reported as living up to 90 years, so this bird is a lifetime investment — make sure that your children or a good-natured neighbor love the bird too because they just might inherit him. Good nutrition, including lots of fruit and vegetables, and lots of playtime and exercise will keep your Amazon in good shape for a long time. Lafeber’s Amazon parrot foods offer nutritional balance and opportunities for foraging.
