Description

Description: White-fronted Amazons (Amazona albifrons) for sale, are also known as the White-fronted Parrot, or Spectacled Amazon Parrot, is a Central American species of parrot. (Not to be confused with the red-spectacled amazon.) They can imitate a range from 30 to 40 different sounds and the smallest of the Amazon Parrots. In the wild, they are not shy and people are often able to approach them and can live in a variety of habitats such as rainforests and dry cactus savannahs.

This species is named for the bright white patch of feathers on its forehead, although the amount of white varies on each bird. White fronted Amazons have predominantly green plumage with some blue on their outer wings. They have bright red around their eyes that can look like spectacles or glasses, and blue feathers behind the patch of white on their foreheads. It's the only amazon species in which adult males and females easily can be distinguished by external appearance: Males have bright red feathers on their "shoulders" (alula), while females have green "shoulders". Juveniles have pale grey irises and less red on their face and the white area is replaced with a smaller yellowish area.

Temperament: White-fronted parrots have assertive personalities yet like to bond with a single person. Best to socialize them thoroughly at a young age, or they become reclusive as they get older. They thrive on social interaction and they need it to remain healthy and happy. If they do not have proper socialization time they may become depressed. 

Care: They are a good choice for owners that have plenty of spare time to spend with their new bird. These parrots need daily exercise to stay healthy and maintain a desired weight. A minimum of 3 to 4 hours outside of its cage per day should provide the correct of time to enable proper exercise routines are maintained.

Most experts recommend a cage at least 2 feet x 3 feet and with a height of 2 1/2 to 5 feet. The cage should have ample play equipment inside, including climbing apparatus, as these are acrobatic birds. 

Size:  about 9.8 inches in length 

Life Span: about 40 years

Breeding: Females lay an average of three to four white eggs and eggs are  incubated for about 26 days. Chicks leave the nest at the age of about 60 days after hatching.

Diet: do best on a high-quality pelleted diet, supplemented with mixed seeds, and daily servings of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables.

DNA Testing  

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.
