We had an african grey timeneh parrot named Bo that we purchased from the newspaper, not knowing very much about birds. This bird was 15 years old and had not been properly socialized, his owner an ederly lady passed away and the bird just wasn't nice. After a year of trying to work with the bird, my boyfriend and I went to a bird show in 2004 on the gulf coast. We saw these two babies together (12 weeks old), an african grey congo and a yellow naped amazon. The amazon was grooming the grey and when we looked closer at the amazon his green looked irredescent. I feel in love with the amazon and he came home with us that day. Bo was starting to get used to us when unfortunately in 2005, when hurricane katrina came, we evacuated and took Trooper and Bo with us. Trooper being still so young handled being homeless well, but Bo was terrrified, so we found a very nice pet store with birds and gave him to them to care for. The owner of the shop was an elderly lady who took him home with her and Trooper sometimes says "Hey BoBo" every now and then. Maybe one day we will ad to the flock, but for now learning about Trooper and teaching him is a job all by itself!!.

Hi! My name is Trooper

I am a Yellow-Naped Amazon from Long Beach, MS.

"Trooper dooper dooper do" Trooper likes to sing his name when he's happy.

10 years old   M

Yellow-Naped Amazon

red seedless grapes, apple chunks and celery

Everywhere that my family goes I go!! I have a t-stand outside on the screened porch, and 2 different playstands in the living area and just about anywhere I can put my feet.

Trying to trick me with a nutritious treat when I can clearly see that mom and dad's junk food looks much different.

She treats me like a king but I am obsessed with my daddy. I only tolerate mom because she feeds, sings, talks, bathes, and cleans up after me. She's really my maid. I love daddy!!!!

I like to be louder than the vacuum cleaner. This is a screaming contest that I always win. Needless to say, my mom vacuums rather quickly, so I don't get much practice, that must be why we have laminate floors!!!.

"Where's daddy? I want my daddy!".

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Trooper! Thanks for visiting! I hope that you had a nice Easter as well. I just wish I'd get more sweet potatoes (which I like) and not be given any of those eggs (which I hate). I must consider eggs as potential unborn relatives or something....lol....Hope you had a great day! Cya...

  Hiya Trooper!
Congrats to your Mom for her new job! I'm sure you had no trouble getting your Dad wrapped around your cute little toe, heehee. Humans are very easy to train. except when it comes to getting more table food. What's the deal with that? Mom offers me big servings of vegetables (yuck , come on!), but when it comes to mac n cheese and all that good stuff, she gives me measly little servings. Hunh. She says its better for my health that way. . . I say that something that tastes so good can only be the healthiest of foods! But she made me some birdie bread and gave me a big serving. It was really, really good. . . so I have a sneaking suspicion it's "good for me". oh, well, I'll pretend I don't suspect. . . Happy Easter, my friend. Here's a vote, and a big SBH!

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Trooper! I'm very glad to meet you. I was browsing some of the newer bird profiles and had to come and say hi, you are such a handsome Zon! I am an elder Double Yellow Head, and I've only been with my human for about a year. Come and see me anytime! Cya...

  Hey there Trooper!
Heehee, I'm a really strong flier like your tiel fibs were. I've had my wings clipped and about an hour or two later was getting up on the curtain rods again. Mom doesn't usually get my wings clipped. I have a new game I'm playing with Mom. I call to her to come get me, instead of flyng to her. She was worried that I'd lost confidence after my last wing trim, but guess what. When she's not home I fly to Dad just fine. Heh. Heh. I am such a stinker. Too bad Dad ratted me out to her. Now Mom won't come get me when I call, and I have to fly to her again. But she praises me a lot for it. Well, it was fun while it lasted. Oooh, we just had a big clap of thunder! Looks like we're going to get one of those early spring storms. Those are exciting. Have a great day Trooper. V4U and a big warm hug!

  Heya Trooper!
Wow, you are spoiled. Lucky guy! Mom likes the idea of putting a perch on top of your cage so you can see out the windows. I have one of those perches that you can hook onto just about anything. So Mom thinks she should put that on top of my cage, or something like that, for car rides. Do you ever get down by your parront's feet when they're driving? Mom feels a little wary of that. But then, she worries a lot. Mom actually seatbelts in my travel cage! Have a great day, buddy. Here's a big birdie hug for ya and a vote.

  Hiya Trooper!
Heeheehee, how funny. I was just talking to a couple of other friends about strollers and bird backpacks. Mom wants to get one now. She wants to take me on walks and try to get away with taking me into stores. Can you imagine that? *Sorry, ma'am, but your bird will have to wait outside*. I hope you have fun when you get to the beach. Maybe I'll get to go this summer! What fun. Here's a big birdie hug for ya, and a vote.

  Hiya Trooper!
Ooh, you're going to the beach? Wow. I wanna go too! I should squawk to Mom about that. . . Today it got almost up to 50 degrees, so I got to sit on my perch in the window for a little bit. Usually in the summer I spend an hour or so in the window every afternoon. I just have to wait 'till it's warm enough. . . Here's a hug for ya, Trooper, and a vote. Have a fun day!

  Hi Trooper!
The best car rides are to the vet's office, because it's a really long drive. I love to watch the patterns of sunlight and shadow go across the seats. And I love to look out the window up at the sky. And then- I get to see My Connie, the vet tech! Thank God spring is almost here! soon I'll be able to hang out with Mom and Dad outside! I like to be out in a light rain too. life is good for us fids. Have a great day, Trooper! Here's a wing hug for you and a vote.
