This beautiful girl is “Lizzie”.
Shes a Yellow Naped Amazon and is at minimum 30 years old. Her diet consists of fruit/veges, zupreem pellets and a peanut for a treat, she does of course like to share anything you may be eating 🙂
We have been working with her since arrival and she has made it pretty clear that she doesn’t really care for females – we are unsure what may have caused this behavior but she has on occasion flown to attack (we were told she never flew). If this behavior continues, we will have to no choice but to lightly clip her to keep her from these attacks.
Because of these behaviors, she will be best suited to a home with a male as her primary caregiver and no small children.
She is stick trained and can be transported from area to area and does enjoy hanging out on the various playstands. Because she is not hand tame, her home visits will have to be done here and appointments will only be done with EXPERIENCED people who are serious about adopting her and not merely looking to check out the birds, we thank you for respecting this.
If you are interested, please refer to this page /guardianship/ and fill out a form. Once we have your completed form, we will contact you to set up a time to meet her.
Dec update: Lizzie has been with an amazing foster dad since early this summer. She has done well with a male caregiver as suspected and still is not comfortable with females and has flown to attack.
