Let us welcome another native of the New World
among us. The Amazon parrot was first brought to
our land by Christopher Columbus. There are 27 species
of Amazon parrots, ranging from
South America to Mexico and the Caribbean. Amazon
parrots are green and short winged. The Amazon
parrot is very good at talking and imitating sounds.
Studies put the intelligence of these feathered
chatterboxes on the same level as three-year old
humans, dolphins and monkeys.
The Amazon parrots
are very energetic, playful and social creatures that
crave lot of interaction with its human owners. It
is well known for its often moody character. It can
be, at different times, cuddly, loud, quiet, stubborn,
silly, jealous, playfully aggressive or irritable.
The Amazon parrot is definitely not for all pet owners,
it needs much more love and attention than most people
would expect. Owning Amazon parrots
is very similar to owning dogs with wings.
