Description

Description: Beautiful Double Yellow Headed Amazon (Amazona oratrix) for sale and is hand fed!  If you are looking for a beautiful, active and talented companion pet bird this could be the one for you! 

The Double Yellow-headed Amazon is also known as the yellow-headed parrot or double yellow-headed amazon and is among the most popular companion Amazons, probably due to its striking coloring and its ability to amass a substantial vocabulary. These birds are especially talented in learning opera and other types of singing, making them charming companions. 

These 14 to 16 inch active birds are recognizable by the generous amount of yellow over the head, with flecks of yellow extending to the back and neck and yellow feathers on the legs. The shoulders are red and the rest of the body is deep green. The ring around the eye is white and the beak is horn colored. Immature birds are primarily green with a little yellow above the beak and slight red markings on the shoulders. They come into full color at the onset of maturity, at about 3 to 5 years of age.

Double yellow-headed Amazon parrots are native to Mexico and northern Central America, where they live in mangrove forests and forests near rivers or other bodies of water.

Behavior: The double-yellow headed Amazon is an active bird that likes to clamber around its given area, and will love to fly if offered enough space. Cage materials should be strong; powder-coated steel or stainless steel makes a good choice.

Toys are essential for this bird, and the most important toys are those that can be chewed and shredded.

Double Yellow headed Amazon Parrots needs consistent stimulation and will not thrive on solitude. This Amazon talks well and is quick to perform antics that will delight its owners.

Destructive behavior can also be a problem with Amazons, who will gladly chew the furniture instead of toys. Supervision is essential to keeping this bird safe and the house intact. It can live up to 80 years of age, and needs an owner who understands the responsibility of caring for a bird with this lifespan. On the positive side, this bird is highly trainable and wants to please its human companions. 

Speech: This is a boisterous bird and tends to be loud, with screaming sessions twice a day, at dawn and dusk. It needs consistent stimulation and will not thrive on solitude. Double yellow-headed Amazon parrots are capable of singing songs, especially opera, in their entirety as well as many words and phrases. It can learn a large vocabulary with a knowledgable trainer.

Diet: This Amazon has a hearty appetite and will eat everything in its cup if the bird is exposed early to a variety of foods. That said, treats and table foods should be fed in moderation, as a double yellow-head has hard time saying “No,” to food. A double yellow-headed Amazon should be fed a nutritionally balanced pelleted diet, as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. Lafeber’s Avi-Cakes and Nutri-Berries are also nutritionally balanced and offer variety for the diet and opportunities for foraging.
