I adopted a orange-winged amazon tonight!!! He is in his mid-twenties. I've named him Rafiki (I name parrots after characters in The Lion King) which means Friend (it was my best friend's idea to name him that). His original name? Who knows? He was a breeder bird for a while about four years ago, but his history before that is completely unknown. Based on his behavior I would say he was hand-fed or at least well-handled at some point in the last couple decades. So four years ago, the people who I got him from found him at a breeder's house where all the females were dead from lack of water and poor nutrition. They ended up taking in three male amazons, former breeders, and rehabbing them back to health. Big hearted people, I tell you. But they have other birds, whom they bought as babies and they also have busy lives to lead, so they searched for homes for the three male amazons from that awful environment. I'm not sure who decided to call him "Green Bird", but it's the only thing close to a name he's had, though he doesn't seem to recognize it as significant to him. So for a bird I got for free, I was expecting him to be very scared or timid or noisy or something else that made him for free... but these people truly just wanted to find him a good home. He says "Hello" and takes food from the hand really well. He's used to being in an open flight cage, so an ordinary parrot cage is a bit intense for him - I'm going to clip his wings so I can allow him out tomorrow (I DON'T believe in having my birds flighted without a flight cage, too many household dangers with kids). I hope I don't scare him too much with the wing clipping... He loves my husband already which is awesome, and I'm so excited I just had to share!!!
