 Amazon Parrots
Amazon parrots comprise many parrots that range in size from the small spectacled (white-fronted) amazon to the quite sizable double yellow-headed and mealy amazons.
Amazons tend to be more independent birds and can amuse themselves much of the day if they are given adequate toys and space.
It is best to train amazons to stand on your hand and NOT on your shoulder because of their unpredictability during "mating season." It is important to learn to recognize their moods and not pick up an amazon when its eyes are flashing and the tail is flared.
