The Amazon parrots: a profile

The Amazons, with their 31 species, make up the largest genus among parrots.
They are found from Mexico and the Caribbean to Argentina and Uruguay. There they inhabit rainforests but also swamps, savannas and semi-deserts. 16 of the species of Amazons are highly endangered or threatened with extinction. Most of them come from Caribbean islands where generally a low population of Amazons prevails. Among the Amazons live some specialists. The Yellow-shouldered Amazon, for example, is found in the coastal lowlands of Venezuela. It lives there among dense growth of cacti and bushes. The Red-tailed Amazon lives in wetlands and mangroves in southeastern Brazil. Above 600m, in the mountain forests on the island of Dominica, the Imperial Amazon can be found. Other Amazons are very felxible and adaptable, so they can be found in a wide variety of habitats. These include the Miller's Amazon or Dufresne's Amazon. Many species of Amazons share habitats as their territories overlap. The White-fronted Amazon, Golden-fronted Amazon, Blue-fronted Amazon, and Venezuela Amazon, as well as Red-fronted Amazon and Jamaican Amazon, can even be seen flocking together. The Yellow-cheeked Amazon has become an agricultural pest. Their habitat has shifted to agriculturally used regions. The Blue-fronted Amazon also causes great damage to orange plantations in Argentina. 9 species of Amazons are restricted in habitat to individual islands. The Blue-headed Amazon and the Imperial Amazon occur on Dominica. The Jamaica Amazon, as the name suggests, is found only on Jamaica and the King Amazon only on the island of Saint Vincent. The Red-fronted Amazon is the smallest Amazon species and is found only in the mountain forests above 500m on Jamaica. In Puerto-Rico lives the very little represented Puerto-Rico Amazon. In the southern end of South America the Amazons start breeding already in October. However, the farther north you go, the more the start of breeding shifts. In Brazil the Amazon parrots breed only in February, in Central America even in May.

How to hold an Amazon?

Amazons are naturally demanding in the species-appropriate attitude and nutrition. If the Amazons are hand-reared, they are usually very tame towards humans. Nevertheless they should never be kept alone. A social partner is always mandatory. Despite a possible single attitude, from which we again advise against, these parrots develop no misbehavior in which they pluck their feathers. However, in the aging of three to five years, with the occurrence of sexual maturity, clear behavioral changes occur. The Amazons then scream very loudly and increasingly develop a strong aggression towards their owner. Therefore it is not advisable to leave children unsupervised with the Amazons during this time. Injuries are preprogrammed. It should always be trained a lot with the Amazon to build up a better relationship or to work with the animal at the vet or even at home.

A minimum of species-appropriate keeping can only be achieved with an aviary where the Amazons can fly sufficiently. If then still nesting opportunities are offered, the species-appropriate attitude can even contribute to the preservation of the animals.

The diet of the Amazon parrot

Amazons eat in the wild mainly buds and flowers, berries and fruits, as well as seeds and sometimes rarely nuts. They also like to take hard-shelled fruits to crack them with their strong beak. Amazons are generally unlucky with their diet. They are permanently condemned to diet, because they tend to obesity very quickly. In addition, they have a very low protein requirement in contrast to other parrots. Thus, the food should consist mostly of fruits and vegetables and rather floury, carbohydrate-rich seeds such as cereals. One should reach as little as possible fat-rich seeds such as sunflower seeds. It is also a mistake to do without oily seeds completely, because then important omega fatty acids cannot be absorbed by the organism and malnutrition can result. We have dealt intensively with this topic and designed our species-appropriate feed mixtures for the healthy nutrition of your Amazons.

The most common disease of amazons - aspergillosis.

To put it briefly. There is mold in the lungs! As everyone can imagine, this can not be good! This kind of disease leads quite often to the death of the Amazon, because the disease is recognized late. Trigger for aspergillosis is often a not species-appropriate attitude and nutrition. Molds are everywhere in the environment, for example in moldy grain feed, in moldy peanuts with shells or even moldy bedding. It has been found that even in poorly ventilated rooms or aviaries with high bird populations, the air had a high concentration of fungi. Amazons inhale the spores and they enter the lungs and multiply. Mycotoxins are then produced via the mold. These toxins can then affect organs outside the respiratory system. Our beloved Amazons are particularly affected by the disease. Aspergillosis is the most common cause of death in large parrots and should not be neglected. This disease can occur due to low humidity, as Amazons have up to 80% of it in their home country. We here in Germany come on 30-50%. The consequence is a drying out of the respiratory mucous membranes, which affects the resistance. Also a lack nutrition favors Aspergillose. There is a lack of vitamin A, because the sunflower seeds most commonly found in poor diets have little of it. This deficiency damages the mucosa and lowers the Amazons' defense against infection. Lack of free flight and stress are only by-products that promote fungal infection.
Important: An Amazon with aspergillosis cannot infect other animals.
