Description

Red-Necked Amazon Parrot

The Red Necked Amazon (Amazona arausiaca) is a brightly colored parrot native to the tropical regions of Mexico, Central and South America. Named for the vibrant red patch of feathers on their nape, these loud, interactive birds can make interesting pets for dedicated owners able to properly care for them.

Red-necked Amazons have extroverted, silly personalities. They form very strong bonds with their owners and love attention and playing games. Lots of toys and training sessions give them needed mental stimulation. Early socialization helps with managing their loud vocalizations.

While Red-necked Amazons can potentially mimic some words or phrases with consistent positive reinforcement training, their loud calls and screams may preclude apartment living. They vocalize often with deafening volume.

Mostly bright green with vivid red feathers on the nape lending to their name. More red feathers with blue and yellow highlights are visible on their wings and tail. Males and females show little color differnces.

Care

These active, noisy parrots need experienced owners able to properly care for them. A large cage, heavy duty toys to shred, ample supervised out of cage time, and training sessions provides essential mental and physical activity.

With a nutritious diet and proper care, Red-necked Amazons can live 60+ years. Common health issues include fatty liver disease, obesity, respiratory infections and feather damaging behaviors. Annual check ups monitor health. Quarantining new bird additions prevents contagious diseases.

Exercise

A large cage provides room for flying and climbing. Additionally, Red-necked Amazons need supervised time out of cage daily to spread their wings fully. Climbing ladders, swinging ropes, and shredding wood toys keeps them stimulated.
