I went to petfinder.com and found a rescue in Ohio called BPP. I checked the birds they had available for adoption and found out about Riley-a 12 year old blue fronted amazon. The more I saw his picture, the more I knew I wanted to adopt him, so I contacted them and started the adoption process. When I was approved I was told another blue front amazon had just arrived and was also ready for adoption. I drove myself more than 6 hours to Ohio to see both of them. I had the chance to spend a few minutes with each one and that's when I realized I was going to get Ray-Ray instead of Riley. Ray-Ray is 27 years old and she's been passed around the family. She is very laid back, easy going, not aggressive. The first 5 days she was home she wasn't eating or doing much but now she's acting normal. The vet did some blood tests and everything came out normal. She's a healthy amazon. Sunny (my other amazon who's 22 months) is adjusting to the new addition. I think Ray-Ray's sounds freak him out a little because he starts yelling whenever Ray-Ray does them. I hope to have Ray-Ray for many more years and will do whatever I can to keep her healthy and happy. Everyone says she doesn't look 27, what do you think?.

Hi! My name is Ray-Ray

I am a Blue-Fronted Amazon from north chicago, IL.

cutie, beautiful

34 years old   F

Blue-Fronted Amazon

Lafaeber nutriberries; almonds in the shell

Sunny and I alternate time on the manzanita tree. I also hang out in my cage when mom and dad are at work.

Sometimes my brother Sunny gets so excited and he starts harassing me when we're on the tree together, I don't like that. Oh but I really dislike the cockatiels, they better not come close to me.

She gave me a loving home with other bird buddies. She gives me really good food although most of it is pretty new to me but I'm starting to like it :)

She doesn't say many words, but she makes lots of weird sounds. She likes to take a bath in the water dish, it's the funniest thing to watch!.

Not all birds that are given up like me are bad birds; some of us are sweet, loving and beautiful... give us a chance and we’ll prove it to you. Consider adopting a parrot whenever possible... it's not for everyone but it's rewarding. There are so many parrots in the US needing a home..

  Hi Ray-Ray
It was good to hear from you again. How's the weather in IL these days? It is beautiful down here. My mom had me outside at the breakfast table this morning. My mom's human daughter is expecting her second boy on Tuesday morning, so my mom is driving to the other side of Florida to help out for a week. She was going to take me along, but now she said I can stay home with my dad.

Come visit me, Echo.

  I had an older brother Pepe, who is a Blue front amazon with colors like yours. He was older, and the yellow had gotten more plentiful the 8 years my dad and mom had him. He went to the Rainbow Bridge March of 06. He was at least 6 years old when mom and dad got him. He was real laid back like you, and may his share of noises. I'll have my dad put a picture of him on my blog. We adopted my sister, Skippy, a Lilac crown amazon, to help dad cause he missed Pepe alot...Oscar

Come visit me, Skippy, Oscar & Sugar.

Are you cute or what!! You look like me so, naturally, I voted for you. Cats are wonderful play toys. Those tails are fun to try to catch! But dangerous? Hardly! Mom takes care to make sure I'm safe, but if truth be told I could beat 'em up easily! Well, anytime you want to visit a cute little lady bird, come see me!

  Hi Ray Ray
Your sure a pretty Amazon and look to be just my type. Let me explain, someone to talk to in bird talk and you would understand me. My mom got me at a pet store here in town. She was looking for a bird that talked and not too over powering. She is intimated by McCaws. So I got to come home with her. The first time home I felt right at home in my new cage. I even started to whistle the first day. I could make the sound of a cell phone and it drove my new owner nuts. I would just laugh at her. I now can laugh out loud and mimic my owners laugh which makes her laugh even more. I love to please my owner she is good to me and gives me treats for being good. Talk to you later, Ray Ray...

Come visit me, Max A Million.

Thanks for the congrats. Yeah I love to stick my head in and pick my own. I do that with the cheez-its when daddy lets me. I won't eat the zuprem but Angel will. It came with the gift. I only eat Kaytee pellets. Angel gets the zuprem natural, and fruity and mommy is trying to get her to also eat the prettt bird brand pellets for greys which has higher calcium she needs. I love the avain entres. No haven't tried the chili peppers one yet, but sure I would like it. Thanks again my friends hope you akk have a wonderful day xoxoxo ZAZOO :)

You are such a pretty bird! You look like me! I don't really like towels all that much, but I tolerate my mom trying to make it look like I'm enjoying the drying off process. I'm actually trying to move the towel away from me. And my mom covered me completely and let me find my own way out while she was waiting for me to peek my head out. Anything to amuse the humans.

My mom just told me that we will be getting a blue fronted amazon this weekend from her friend who is no longer able to care for her. Her name is Casandra and she is 42 years old (I'm only 1). I just wanted to tell you that you are a beauty and I cast a vote for you!

Happy days!
Casey

  Sorry for your loss
My mom read me your message today. I feel so sad for Angel. Sometimes we don't understand why all this happens. I'm sure Angel will be happy with other cockatoos if she can't have her mom anymore. It all takes time. Hope all is well with you. I miss you. Gave you a vote for today. XOXOXOXOXO Echo

  Hello from Harry
I love how you and your new mom came together. I was adopted too, I'm at my third home (it better be my last!) and I really like it here. I agree with you that adoption isn't for everyone, but many of us in rescues are there not because of any fault of our own. Kuddos to your mom for giving you a loving new home! Here is a vote.

Come visit me, Brett - Greater Vasa Parrot, Pippin & Ollie (the bird formerly known as Harry).

  SORRY ABOUT YOUR LOSS
The loss of your friend (Angels') mom. We have lost so many in our family to that awful cancer. So sad. We saw a blog that we had blogged on her page. That pic of her mom kissing Angel is so prescious. I left them a message on there too. Thankyou for letting me know. From what you said the guy at the sanctuary said, sounds like Angel is doing ok. SO sad, a bird that went through so much then losing again. She had done alot for her. I will say a prayer for the family and again sorry for your pain too. Looks like you knew eachother in person. ZAZOO

  Hi Ray-Ray!
What is it with Grey's? Wisdom's making my life difficult by loving all the dollar store toys that mom buys for us. His favorite toy in the whole world right now is an orange fish rattle that mom got for a dollar and he ignores the 30 dollar toy she bought him on Saturday from the pet store! For me, the more expensive the toy, the more I like it! He's making me look like a diva! It's so awesome that you're getting along with Sunny better! That's great news! I love almonds, too! I take almonds right from mom's hand but Wisdom is still too chicken to take food from the hand. Mom keeps trying, though. - Pepper

Maybe we are BROTHERS ! ! ! ! I had my import tag on until 2 years ago, when the vet said, "May as well take it off. Looks like he won't be going anywhere else. He found his home." Gave you a vote for today.

  Hi Ray Ray
My name is Echo. I'm a Blue Front too. Although many people say I'm a Yellow Wing, which is a sub species of Blue Front. We have a little more yellow on our shoulders than a Blue Front. You look just like me. You might be a Yellow Wing too. How cool. I was a rescue bird too. I bit and nipped for about 3 months. Then I gave up because everybody still loved me anyway. It was more fun to be cuddled than pushed away. You look much younger than me. No one knows how old I am. I was a captured bird. The vet told my mom they stopped importing parrots in 1990, so I'm at least 17-18. It sure is good to have a nice home, isn't it? I like your pictures. I have a few on my web page too. I don't talk much, but I love to sing. How about you?

Come visit me, Echo.
