Amazon parrots are one of the most popular medium-sized parrot species. They are often described as boisterous, playful and outgoing. The males have a ‘macho’ behaviour by flaring their tail feathers, pin their eyes and strut across the floor or tabletop.
The Amazon parrots have a hearty appetite, especially for human food, so please do not overfeed them with table scraps.
Wild Amazons love fruit, seeds, flowers and nectar; they will eat grain if they come upon it.
