Hi! My name is Papito

I am an Eclectus from Cheverly, MD.

Papito jumped from his perch to go look for me while I was in the other room. He dislocated his little wing. The vet said that he is going to be fine. It will take him 2 to 3 weeks to recover.

9 years old   M

Eclectus

Peanuts

The perch in my bedroom.

He loves to chatter when he is sitting on his pearch.



He likes to cuddle under the sheets next to me before I put him in his cage for the night..

  So I see you have an addition in the family
So I see your family decided to give the OWA a home! Yay! Just you wait till he's all settled in. It usually takes a few weeks, but once we settel in we really come out of our shells :) Plus he's only 2.5 so he's still just a baby...kinda. Lots of energy, just wait till next summer (we amazons really come alive in the spring/summer months, if you know what I mean XD ). Well I'll ttyl.

  Hi!

How are you? I fell in love with a beautiful 2.5 years old Orange Wing Amazon from a Pet Shot in NJ. He needed a good home. He has been at the store since he was born. He was handfed but did not sell. His name is Gonzo. He is a little scare and doesn't seem to like women but with me he is getting more comfortable. I was working with him this weekend. He is already stepping-up but it takes me a while to get him out of the cage. He is already starting to say 'hola' in birdie kind of voice. He took his first shower on Sunday.

I felt so sorry for such a beautiful bird just been at a pet shop. He just needed someone willing to work with him and I am looking forward to making good friends with him and providing him with TLC. Health wise he is fine, they feed him well. I got it at a place in NJ called Bird Paradise, have you heard from them? Is an amazing store for all kinds of toys and other bird stuff. I bought a play pen for Papito and he loves it! He looks so happy playing and hanging around in it. His wing is back to normal.

Bird Paradise has a seminar in October with bird experts coming and also Dr. Irene Pepperberg, the lady that did research with Alex the african grey. Here is more info:

October 20-21, 2007.
The 4th Annual Parrot Palooza at Bird Paradise, Burlington, NJ. For more info please visit Bird Paradise's website

I'm planning on going. I will stay overnight since it is a 2 day event.

Take care!

Nelson, Papito, Tosca, Gonzo, Piruli and Mamita

  Any decisions made?
So what does your mom think about the Orange wing. Is she any closer to making a decision about adopting him. I bet she wont be sorry if she does, we amazons are party animals! How are you doing, making lots of use of your good wing? Well I'll ttyl.

  Yay your all better!!!
Glad to hear you are feeling all better! Hmmm so you want to know about Amazons huh? Well mom could really go on here so... I'll try to keep it under novel length. You said 1 1/2 right? Orange wing amazons are a mid sized Amazon ranging anywere betweet 13-14 inches long. They can be confused with BFA because of the similar facial coloring. However OWA have a horn colored patterning to their beak, while the BFA beak is all black. Like most other Amazons they can be noisy although they are usually considerd quieter than DYH, YN, and BFA. However keep in mind there are always exceptions :) It is very important to train Amazons at an early age and to be consistent with them. We do best with owners who know how to be the head of the flock, otherwise we will take control (and that can include biting ;P ). A healthy diet is also important. Mom feeds me a variety of foods consisting of pellets, fresh fuits and veggies, healthy "people" foods, and a little bit of seed/nut mix (usually saved for training sessions). We Amazons love our food and if not monitered we tend to get a bit chunky :) Um, I guess I'll stop here, I don't want to overwhelm you! Have your mom ask the pet store owner lots of questions! I'll ttyl. Let me know if you want to know anything else. I'll try and help where I can.

  Hi Papito
Thanks for the vote and writing to me. I would like to know the person in Ga where you came from. Mom is not sure that me and the eclectus would get along ok. The one pet store in our area is suppose to soon get some eclectus babies in but they have to still feed them so they should be pretty tame. I have been the only bird here for 5 years and mom loves me very much and talks all the time to me and thinks another bird would be good here. She is just worried about upsetting me too. Any information you can send my way I will tell mom about it so cheech to you later.

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hello from Ollie
I just had to stop in and say hello and welcome Papito. My mom has a friend with an Eccie. You guys have such pretty colors. Sorry to hear about the wing, that's a bummer. I hope it heals fast. Here is a vote for you, stop by and visit me anytime.
