Pirate is a wildcaught orangewing, reported to have been imported OVER 60 years ago..Pirate doesn't like people. He does have a buddy, though...Bogey DYH has moved in with him and they are pals.
MANY OF OUR AMAZONS WOULD DO WELL IN HOMES THAT WOULD LIKE TO LOOK BUT NOT TOUCH. THAT MAKES THEM LESS COMPANIONABLE, BUT ALSO LOWER-MAINTENAINCE.
Paco is a red lored amazon who's been abused, has lived in the wilds of Waterloo, Iowa and survived, and is very stubborn about doing things his way. He still is refusing to be handled or step up..He does like to be talked and sung to while inside his cage. He's absolutely the prettiest red-lored I've ever seen, and is in excellent health. He's buddies with Tequila, an orange-winged amazon, and they take good care of each other. BOTH OF THESE BIRDS ARE WILD-CAUGHT IMPORTS, PROBABLY SMUGGLED. While it's possible that they could be tamed by a skilled and patient keeper, they may have to spend their lives just being parrots.
Elvis, one of the BFAs from the Tennesee parrot mill bust in 2011, is an older imported bird. He's bald-headed and has arthritis. He likes to have a cage with platforms and ramps so he can get around easier, and prefers to be where he can see other amzons without having to get too close. He's not hand tame.
Kilgore is a bluefront male, age unknown...he has an import band. He's healthy and good-looking, but not tame at all.
Bogie is a male double yellow-head, likely of the Tres Marias subspecies. He's about 15, and is tame, but shy with men...he attacks women, and has bitten faces. .
Maya is a female yellow-nape in her early 30s. She was tame once with her previous keeper, but han't found anyone she likes since she came here, and can be aggressive with people she doesn't like.
Papa is a widcaught bluiefront, age unknown. He's completely wild, and will need a look-but-don't-touch home.
Davy is a wildcaught import female bluefront, age unknown, but at least 25 years old. She's not tame, and is very fearful of people and hands. She is used to being around dogs. She also likes to be caged near another amazon...adopters MUST be prepared to accept that she won't be handled, and that they need to be ready to give a home to a second amazon along with Davey
Davy likes to be around people once she's gotten to know them, and will talk and sing to you. She's letting me touch her a little through the cage.
Herkie is a 30 year old male orangewing. He is sometimes aggressive toward other amazons, and will do best as an only bird. He steps nicely on a stick, but is handshy. He has a minor medical issue that we're working on, a skin irritation on his rump.
His former flockmate Madison YNA has been adopted.
