Blue-Fronted Amazon Species Profile
Traits:  Although affectionate, the blue-fronted Amazon is also excitable, so keep your pet bird’s surroundings peaceful. Blue-fronted Amazons are playful, but not as destructive as other Amazon species. When it comes to housing a blue-fronted Amazon, the larger the cage is better. These pet birds need room to exercise by climbing, flying and playing with toys.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Obesity is a concern with blue-fronted Amazon. Provide your Amazon with a balanced, low-fat diet, supplemented with plenty of exercise. Blue-fronted Amazons tend to have Vitamin-A and calcium deficiencies. They are also susceptible to psittacosis and poxvirus infections. Be aware that this Amazon parrot can have large mood swings during a breeding cycle. Males tend to be more gregarious and are known for being macho, flaring their tail and pinning their eyes as they strut the notorious Amazon strut. Females can be clingy, girlie and demonstrate nesting instincts by hiding in the sofa or sneaking into kitchen cabinets, said Diana Holloway, former president of The Amazona Society.
