The Other Amazons

Rare Amazons you have to meet

By Sally Blanchard

An Amazon perches on a branchIn my more than 30 years of working with companion parrots, I have met hundreds of Amazon parrots. Most have been blue fronts, double yellow heads and yellow napes. While these remain the most popular companion Amazons, there are several lesser-known Amazon species that I believe should be just as popular. Perhaps they are less flashy and might not have a reputation for being great talkers, but nonetheless, they can be excellent human companions.

I have a white front amazon, and she is an absolute sunshine. She is funny and outgoing, and a nice size.
