I found him in the back room of a breeders shop in a very small cockatiel cage that was placed under a cabinet about 6 inches off the floor. I was told that his "lady" was killed in front of him a few days prior to my visit, she had fallen and her head exploded (according to this breeder)there was dried blood in front of and on on his cage. My heart broke for him when I was told that he was wild caught. Snatched from freedom and placed in Hell without any choice, and without an explanation. This woman could not tell me how long it had been since he'd felt the sunshine on his face, "several years at least." I took him home THAT DAY!. Awards

Hi! My name is Elmo

I am a Blue-Fronted Amazon from Joplin, MO.


8 years old   M

Blue-Fronted Amazon

Apples, Bannanas, and Pizza.

The top of his cage, and my bed. There is a large window that he can look thru, this gives him the opportunity to announce himself to the neighborhood! Loves to be on the front porch Screaming with all his might!

Anyone too close to his Mama, Roosters, and the dog breathing!

She rescued me, gave me my life back. Now I'm fat and sassy and spoiled rotten. I get to go outside and yell at the world!

Likes to be on the bed with me. Hangs upside down on his bell and bangs on it when he's mad..

I am here to live OUTLOUD!.

  getting more brave
Altho Elmo and I spend a great deal of time together and he's learnig to trust me, he still refuses to step onto my hand or forearm. I tried the stick approach, but panics and either runs away or jumps over it. I can pick him up from behind (around his wings)he struggles somewhat, put his beak on my fingers, but has never bitten me. Yesterday he climbed down off of his cage to the floor and walked around yelling "MAMA". When he found me in another room he climbed up on a chair to be next to me. This is a first!!!

Come visit me, Elmo.

  Hello from Ollie
My heat goes out to you dear friend. I can't imagine having been a free bird and then snatched out of your home and put through the horror that you were. I hate to hear of wild caught birds. It is wonderfull that your momma took you away from that terrible place! I hope that that shop does better buisness... You are such a good bird to still give people a chance. It sounds like you are getting spoiled somthing good :) Me too. Here is a vote, Hope to talk to you soon.


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

  What's up Screeeeeeeech
I am so glad to hear that you have a Mama. Very sorry that you had to go thru what you did. But at least now; you have a nice place to live. My Momma is thinking of getting a bird that looks like you. I saw him in the pet shop; and we talked some. Glad that you have joined the club
