Birds - Amazon

Amazon

The Amazon is a stocky-built bird with a square tail. Those commonly kept for pets are mostly green with light bone or dark gray beaks. Amazons have green body feathers, varying from dark bluish green to a yellow green. Amazons seem plain at first glance, but that quickly changes when they flare into display. In full display, they fan out their tails revealing red and yellow colors. The Amazon raises his head feathers, dilates his eyes and walks stiff legged. He holds his wings away from his body, drops them slightly, and fans the lower wing feathers revealing dazzling bright feathers. These Birds have eyelashes. They tend to become obese as they age. It is essential that they learn to eat healthy, low fat food early in life. The cage for an Amazon should be square or rectangular.
