Double Yellow-Headed Amazon


Species group:
 Amazon Parrots

Other name(s): Yellow-headed Amazon,;
Tres Maria (A. o. tresmariae)

Scientific name: Amazona oratrix

Appearance

Details: The Double Yellow-headed Amazon is the single most coveted Amazon parrot. Its superb talking skills and its spectacular plumage, which only gets better with age as the yellow spreads, make it one of the most highly desired pet birds on the planet. Many talented Double Yellow-heads speak or sing with intelligence and wit, without the sensitive nerves of the African Grey. These birds are rowdy, self-confident, and, yes, hard to handle if you don't bring all your parrot behavior skills to the forefront. Because of their great confidence, these birds will take control if you don't.
