Yellow Naped Amazon

Origin: Africa

Origin:  Central America

Lifespan:  50-60 Yrs, some are known to live over 90 yrs.

Height:  12”

Talking:  Great talking birds that can learn fast

Personality:  Yellow-naped Amazons are wonderful as young birds, but tend to become nippy as they get older, particularly the males, though individual birds vary.  Females tend to remain sweeter, so you might want to consider a hen when making your purchase. This may not be a bird for children, as a bite from a yellow nape’s beak is formidable. But don’t let this daunt you – they have wonderful pet potential, and they are certainly a popular choice for many reasons. If you notice a temperament change, simply take precautions that you don’t get hurt, or hurt the bird either.

Food: Parrot mix, fruits/veggies

Care:  Yellow-napes are reported as living up to 90 years, so this bird is a lifetime investment – make sure that your children or a good-natured neighbor love the bird too because they just might inherit him. Good nutrition, including lots of fruit and vegetables, and lots of playtime and exercise will keep your Amazon in good shape for a long time.
