This gallery contains 2 photos. Casey the lovable, gregarious and talkative Yellow-Crowned Amazon parrot shares her habitat, perch (and feed) with her very dear feathered friend, Monty the Princess Parrot. Curiosity goes both ways; we were as interested to photograph her as she was to learn about us … as evinced by her inquisitive expression.
Amazons are intelligent, sociable, and talkative medium-sized parrots native to Central and South America. There are 30 breeds of Amazons, and all have green and yellow plumage as their common colours. This one was talking to and responding very well to her handler when we were there. If well looked after, Amazons can live 40-50 years in captivity.
