Double Yellow-Headed Amazon

apples,grapes,a- lso like it when my humans share their goodies

I love to climb on my cage and walk on the floor,best is mom's lap.

don't bother me when I am eating.

They rub my head and let me get out of my cage everyday.Mom lets me sit in her lap.

sometimes I hunch over and makes my wings do this circular motion.Does anyone know why I do this?.

Love is a beautiful thing !!!.

  hi cracker,
hi we had to come see you and tell you our news, well mom did the thing she said she was done doing, we have a new flock mate, he is a severe macaw named Teo. he is a rescue from a family who did not know the first thing about birds. from Teo.. when they came to see me I was eating cereal with milk on it and they said i was fed sandwiches with meat and cheese and had shared them with the cats that lived there. then to my new family's horror she took me outside to sit at the picnic table and my wings are almost grown out!! she said I don't know how to fly but wow what a chance she was taking. so mom thought they had to get me out of there. now I get a full nights sleep instead of about four to six at a time with being in the middle of the apartment. come visit my page, Teo....

  Hi Cracker
Guess what? Mom went to the bird rescue place in Iowa and now we have two new brothers. Their names are Nate and Eddie. Boy can they yell! Carlos and I join in sometimes and it sounds real good and loud. Eddie is a double yellow head and Nate is a yellow nape like Carlos is. I think the boys are going to get a surprise. Mom is looking for the wing trimming scissors!! She says she doesn't want to lose any of us birds by us flying outside and away. Enough about us. How are you and your dad getting along. Mom gets cheap vinyl tablecloths and puts under our cages. She finds pretty ones for the holidays.

  Hey Cracker. How exciting to hear about your new friend leroy..to bad he is so noisy. I shout when I want some attention or treats and dont stop till I get it. sometimes my mom gently grabs my shouting beak and gives it a little shake and I stop cause I HATE it when peple touch my beak:)

  hi cracker,
Its me again, Mom wanted to tell you about Phebe's band. Mom found you where Phebe was hatched, her owner died at age 21 and we adopted her. we found out her aviary was Red Tail Aviary but it is no longer running so we could not speak to them, but it was fun finding out where she came from in Florida. talk to ya later..

  hi cracker,
It's great you held still and mom could look at your band, my mom says there should be three letters together with an "A" as the last letter that would stand for aviary. your numbers mean that you are bird number hatched, if the numbers are together it means you are the 791st bird hatch to that aviary that year. if the 91 is spaced out from the 07 it means you are number 7 of that year. mom says your number could end in 97 which would mean you were born in 1997 that would match your age you have on your page. as in 07 97. The letters may be AZ as in Arizona or AK as in Arkansas. Maybe your mom will be able to get another look and write it down just as she sees it. Good luck! if we can get the aviary letters and the state mom may be able to find where you were hatched. birdie hugs and kisses Teddy and Mom.

  hi cracker,
you were asking for a training video, the trainer's name is Barbara Heidenreich and her videos and books are Good Bird, she is awesome. When I was first starting to train I made the mistake of just going on the web and finding someone, not always the best idea. He had very poor training methods and I was unaware of this at first. She is in bird talk from time to time. take care gotta go to work, Teddy's mom...

  hi cracker and nancy,
that is great news!! Cracker needs something to keep him/her distracted until you can get the numbers and letters off it. a shower might help and when he is preening and also a treat that he really has to work on might help. as for looking at it, the state letters run up and down while all the others run along the band if that will help you see it. When I get home from work I will find out what dvd i borrowed from my friend, its called "good bird" i think, the trainer's name is what I need to find out. I already taught Teddy to turn around in a circle!! take care you two Teddy and JoAnne.... p.s. the vet can look at the band for you if he does a dna test too.

  hi cracker,
your band has nothing on it? it probably has worn down have your mom look very closely to see if she can see anything. there was something written there at one time. If she sees something tell us and we will help you figure it out. it would have the state the year and the aviary letters on it. good luck and it is nice to hear from you! hugs, Teddy and mom... p.s. there is no for sure way other than a dna test I take my birds to the vet and have a blood draw done then they send it to a lab and they send a certificate with your birds name and sex on it.

  Hi Cracker
Just wanted to fly by and see how you are doing. We have been having so much fun shredding paper and boxes. When the school bus goes by, we yell at the kids. What have you been doing? Do you listen to music? Our mom has the radio on for us all day. Sometimes there is a good tune to dance to. When she plays her cds, there is lots of animal sounds for us to listen to. She has lots of Native American music. Let us know how and what you have been up to. Friend, Sadie and Carlos. Oh boy, we are getting spaghetti for lunch1!!!

  Hi
Hi Cracker, it was nice to meet you. I have heard that both male and female look alike. My mom is actually not sure what I am, but she is just guessing male. It was really nice to hear from another double yellow-headed amazon. Keep in touch!

Love,
Harley

  Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Cracker! I'm not exactly sure how old I am--the Bird Park where I used to live got some paperwork with me that suggested late 30's, but even my new vet can't really say. So I'm down as 41, I've been with my human for almost 2 years now. We DYH's are perhaps the second best talkers in the parrot world, just below African Greys (when they decide to talk and not just imitate sounds, that is). We are also frequently (and unfortunately) one-person birds. For some reason I can't fly (probably never learned how, and at my age I'm not gonna start now!). But I have learned how to climb down and swing myself over the seedguards on my cage or my playstand and try to wander the floor. But like your new family has learned, that's not necessarily a good thing for a 'chewer' to do. I'm closely supervised whenever I'm out of my cage, and usually put back on the cage or playstand when I get too close to something that I can damage (you should SEE the built in bookcase that I snuck into once....lol...) Between my inclination to chew everything and the two cats that live here, I don't get much floor time, that's for sure. Yes, that's a box on the bed where I'm playing, I love going in and out and chewing them up. As far as toys--that's what they're for--to destroy! Parrots just have to chew, especially wood! My human makes some of my toys with chunks of wood and other goodies and re-makes them after I've turned the wood into mulch--MUCH cheaper than buying the store toys. Just make sure they're safe and use uncoated wood (not fruit or teak or cedar). Hope you had a great day, and come and see me again!

  Welcome
Hi Cracker, My name is Sadie Bird. I'm a blue front amazon.My sissy 's name is Carlos. She is a yellow naped amazon. We are real good at talking but we prefer yelling at the kids in the park when they are playing basketball.Mom says this spring, we are going to the parrot Rescue in Iowa and get brothers. I was adopted by mom from there. When our brothers come home with us, boy can we ever yellat those kids. It'll be like yelling in stereo. Cool!I'm glad you fffgot a good home now. Tell mom when you hunch down and fan your wings you are looking for someone to fly at. Mom keeps a close eye on us when we do that cause she knows we are looking for trouble.Maybe you are just checking things out,especially when strangers come into your space.

Come visit me, WE ARE CARLOS AND SADIE BIRD.

  Hi Cracker
Welcome I hope you will be very happy in your new home. I came to my new home about 6 mths ago and my previous family had me for 20 yrs. My dad died and mom couldnt handle me she kept me locked in my cage with no toys and only a few seeds to eat. My new home is great. I started yelling for my new dad the next day after coming home. Mom couldn't believe I just fell right into place. I had never been around other birds though so I stay in dads office away from the others. It does take a little time especially if you lost an owner that you were bonded with. My dad passed several months before I went to my new home. Good luck you will be happy once you learn to trust your new family.
Heres a vote for you.

  hi cracker,
welcome to the b.c. to his new family. we have a dyh ( she has her own page it is our daughter's bird)amazon in our family that we bought from a woman who could not handle her. first of all do not allow him on top of the cage. this makes him feel to much in control. never let him be above eye level. the motion that he is making with his wings are aggressive to protect himself from advances toward himself because he does not know you. we have a baby amazon named Teddy I will never let him play on top of his cage because it will make him feel the same way even though he is young. If he gets up on top he acts the same way not wanting to step-up ect. good luck, it sounds like he will have a great home with you. ask me anything about amazons, I would love to help in any way I can. here's a vote for him....Teddy and flock..

Come visit me, Pepper, J.B. (Jamie Bond girl 007), Teddy, Phebe, Daisy Jane & Alex.
