I was caught out of the wild over 26 years ago. I was sold to a family and then wasn't handled by people for over 15 years. I was given up to foster care and spent a couple months with a family that trained me a little but I was still very shy. When I came to mom to be fostered though, I was as outgoing and friendly as any amazon she'd ever seen. Because I was so happy here, she decided to keep me. She is now in the process of adopting me. :).

Hi! My name is Tico

I am a Yellow-Naped Amazon from Kaysville, UT.

My nicknames are big bird, lazy butt, and baby zon.

28 years old   M

Yellow-Naped Amazon

My favorite treats are peanuts and crackers.

My favorite hang out spots are on my play stand, in my cage, and on mom's shoulder.

My pet peeves are other birds and being woken up from naps.

I love that mom took time to find out who I really was when everyone else didn't. No one would have ever known what an outgoing, affectionate amazon I really am if it weren't for mom.

My quirky habits are yelling for mom whenever she leaves the room, refusing to eat anything healthy, and biting when I don't feel like doing what I'm asked..

Don't judge a book by it's cover!.

  Hi Tico
Punkin here. hehehehe. Sly would always try to pop the nail covers off moms fingers when she would use them. She didn't often have to use them as her own nails are usually long. There are colors we won't let her wear though.
We can understand what your mom says when she says her shoulders and hands are full enough. But of course, if a bird in need shows up there'll always be room, but we are not fostering at the moment.
Gotta fly for now as Sophie is letting her wants be known and a C2 IS loud. Talk later. hugs and kisses.

  Hi Tico
Punkin here. Nope we aren't doing that here. We haven't found a club or anything. There are several around here so we've heard. But dad isn't really feeling that good so we're not fostering....right now.
There aren't that many birds listed on craigslist either which is amazing to mom. Not that we can buy anything but hey you know how it goes. hehe
My fister, Sidney is in the kissing booth one more week and so I hope ya'll will go visit her for hugs and kisses. She's showing John Wayne movies too. Tonights movies are The Quiet Man and North to Alaska

  Very handsome photo, Tico!
I had a very good day with dad doing my "chicken dance" on his chest. Some company came by later this afternoon and mom brought a bunch of us out. I get to sit in my very own chair and make my sounds and talk to everybirdy. You are one lucky zon, just like my frother Elvis (who is also a wild caught) by finding a great home. Mom's ok, but my heart belongs to daddy. LOve and winghugs, Miranda

  Hi Tico!
Sorry, but I have to do a cp today~~

Mom added a few pictures to my gallery, that are not of me (Well, one is). The first one is a portrait she did of me and her (please keep in mind she sucks at humans!), the 2nd one is of her and a horse named Sydney. The 3rd one is just Sydney. The 4th one is of a pony. The 5th one is a donkey, and the 6th one is of a horse named SkyDancer. She went to feed all the horses yesterday. They sure do love candy canes!!!

I got to watch Mom clean today. It does not look like much fun. But after, me and her watched Disney Channel. So that made up for the boring cleaning!

Good night!

  Hi Tico,
yeah, we are a couple of lucky zons alright. I also love happy endings...
We have not gotten any snow here that has stayed, actually our winter has been pretty warm this year...
Snow is pretty to look at but mom doesn't like to have to go out in it...

I'll let Jewels know that Juni was asking about her...Jewels is still here on BC and will go over and see Juni...

  Hi Tico,
I am sorry that I did not get back to you in a timely manner but mom had to Seattle for a doctor's appointment on Wednesday and she had to fly there alone...it did not go well and it is a long story if you want to hear about it...needless to say that mom is thrilled to be home again...

I am sorry that your life was so hard before but now you have landed in the lap of luxury with a super mom and family. You are now one lucky zon!

  I get to stay out a lot too
Cause I'm pretty well behaved myself - plus I'm able to entertain myself and I get involved in some major projects . . . yesterday I worked on shredding a box of tissues (and the box) Then as I stood lord and master over my heap, I flapped my wings really hard ! It was like being inside a snow globe ! ! ! And I know mom really liked it too cause she screamed (with joy) and was waving her arms around in the air like she wanted to try too !

love Cookie

  Hello Tico!
Here is a vote for you! You look just like our Pedro. Pedro's favorite treats are cashews and nutri-berries. I see that you like peanuts. Mom stopped giving peanuts to us fids because they can caus aspergillosis. That is something that you may want to look into. When you see peanuts that have "black stuff" on the shells, these are peanuts that may possibly have this aflatoxin on them. Pedro's best friend is Rocket. Rocket is our African Gray; and Pedro thinks that Rocket is his birdie!! You are a beautiful bird! Fly on in and meet out flock.

My mom agrees that amazons are affectionate! I certainly am! Zons get a bad rep. Take care and have a great day! It's warm here, so we're heading outside to play in our birdie playground. That's my absolute favorite thing to do, well..I do love eating and the shower too!
