Description

Description

Description: Blue fronted Amazons (Amazona aestiva), are also called the Turquoise Fronted Parrots, and the Blue Fronted Parrot, and  are one of the most common Amazon parrots kept in captivity. They are beautiful birds with a distinct lime green feathering color and often have a patch of blue or turquoise found just above the beak. In the wild they can be found in Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay, and northern Argentina, extending south to Buenos Aires.

Color variations exist in these beautiful birds and some have no blue on the head while others have a head that is almost entirely turquoise. Yellow typically surrounds the blue and stretches over and under the head before giving way to the body's bright green feathers. You might even find birds with white patches.

Generally, the Blue Fronted has touches of bright red on the shoulders and flight feathers, which may also have a violet tint when in flight. This also varies by individual and some have only green shoulders, particularly wild parrots found in northwestern Argentina.
 
Blue Fronted Amazons are a monomorphic species, so the males and females look alike. The only way to know the sex of your bird is through DNA sexing.
 
Size: about 13-15 inches in length and about 0.6-1.2 pounds in weight
 
Lifespan: about 27 years
 
Temperament:  They are intelligent birds and love to be around their owners and love attention. When well socialized these parrots will enjoy the company of the entire family, but they tend to choose a favorite. While blue-fronted amazons are good talkers, they are loud in the morning and are known to display their natural screeches for about 10 minutes before settling in. Perhaps, it is their way of welcoming the day.
 
Care: The minimum recommended cage size for an active Blue Fronted Amazon is a 3-foot cube, though larger is better and stainless cages are highly recommended.
 
Diet: high-quality pellets, a quality seed mix, and daily servings of fresh, bird safe fruits and vegetables.
 
If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
