I had been passed around to several homes and was finally surrendered to a rescue last year for being hand shy, anti-social, and for screaming. My new Mom is a vet, and she was able to tell that I have arthritis in my feet. I'm not hand shy - it just hurts to step up! Now that I take joint supplements, I am doing much better, and I can be my social, happy self!.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Americo! New pics? Very cute! You look like a wonderfully happy and spoiled birdy! My human has had me for a year now, and she's still trying to find out how to get me to like getting wet. The only time I seem to like it is in the summer if I'm in the little outside cage and it rains lightly, then I really get 'into it'. Do you like showers or baths? I sometimes think I'm the only amazon in the world who doesn't like wet....lol... Hope you had a great day! Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Americo! Thanks for flying over to say hi a couple of weeks ago. I've been busy preparing for a Bird Channel Fantasy Isle costume party at the end of the month. I've finally caught up with the costume/picture making, so thought I'd invite you to come check out the pics in my lower gallery when you get a chance. If you like fantasy/mythical creatures you might enjoy them! Hope you had a great year so far...Cya....

  Cool!
I thought that looked like Coco in Guess the Bird, cage looked the same! Interesting about area breeders. I wonder of Vern is mix of subspecies, he doesn't quite fit one subspecies. We have been under snow for over a week now! Cosmo the budgie is being treated for Avian Gastric Yeast and Psuedomonas. I have treated him for AGY twice already. He is a tough little guy, responding well.

Come visit me, Mongo, Vern & Chester.

  Hello!
Hey, there big girl! I just talked to my avian vet and she said the smallest WFA she has seen weighs 150, the biggest ones were around 200 grams. Vern is average at 175. Coco is so above average! It is snowing for the first time this season.

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Americo! That might have been what they called that parrot, because she remembers that it was smaller than most amazons. My human used to spend most of her time near the food preparation area (lucky for me I was housed there). The birds she worked with the most were the Lorikeets and the Toucans, but there were times when she had to go around and do the feedings to all of the birds. Out of the hundreds of birds they had there, the only ones she didn't like was one nasty Aracari and a full of bad attitude African Crown Crane...lol...Hope you had a great day! Keep warm! Cya...

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Americo! Thanks for flying by, and the compliment on my pics. I'm trying to help Santa out with some early deliveries...lol... When I lived (and my human worked) at the Bird Park, there was one amazon that was similar in looks to you, but I don't remember what they called his breed. I know it wasn't called a white front, though. Are you an uncommon breed of amazon? Cuz they had a LOT of birds at that Park....Cya...

  Oh, my!
240 grams, what a big girl! And she looks great. I forgot to tell you; I wrote an article about Vern and it was published in January, 1998 in Pet Bird Report. I don't have a PDF file of it but I can send it to you as an attachment if you are interested. Email me at Boplo@comcast.net (Boplo=Big Old Parrots Loves Oranges.)

  Fascinating...
We are doing great in WA, mild weather, much like San Francisco area. There are always new things to learn about birds! How much does Coco weigh? Vern is 175 grams. He was malnourished when I got him 1992 and weighed 200 grams. Dr. Elizabeth Kamaka, our avian vet, also has a WFA hen and she is much smaller and crippled with arthritis. Fascinating...

  Hi there!
Hello! Vern has white irises, some WFA have orange. Now I am very curious about the difference. Could it be a subspecies? Cosmo the budgie has white eye rings, but they do not change if his pupils contract. Birds are so fascinating!

How are things in IN? I used to live in Evansville, Vincennes and Terre Haute. My in-laws live in Sullivan.

  Hi there!
It is so nice to see a happy, health WFA. She looks like the pin-up on the centerfold of Bird Talk! Vern has white eye rings, some have orange. What colors eyes does Americo have?
