Orange-Winged Amazon Species Profile
Traits:  Known as the clown of Amazona, the orange-winged Amazon loves to play and has a penchant for puffing up its cheek feathers and raising its head feathers. Orange-winged Amazons usually have mellower personalities than that of other Amazon birds; however, they are still capable of demonstrating their happiness. These pet parrots have a unique ruff of feathers on their napes that they can raise and lower, making the orange-winged Amazon’s body language more noticeable. Orange-winged Amazon parrots like to be part of the family and enjoy participating in the human activities that go on around the house.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Orange-winged Amazons love to eat, which can lead to obesity. Provide your orange-winged Amazon a balanced, low-fat diet of pellets, fruits and vegetables along with plenty of exercise. Good nutrition also keep their feathers vibrant. These pet birds are also susceptible to vitamin-A and calcium deficiencies and psittacosis. The orange-winged Amazon is good with children. They often “shadow box” into the air with their own shadows.

Expert Advice

“Quieter, not as great a talker, but balanced with a sweeter personality.”
