Amazon parrots are among the more popular medium-sized parrot species, which might have something to do with their gregarious personalities. They are often described as boisterous, playful, and outgoing — some even like to sing.
Amazon parrots are intelligent and sociable birds with many striking wild type color variations. For these reasons, they are popular pet birds. However, it takes an experienced bird owner to handle the parrot personality and to provide the care a parrot requires. Male Amazons have a reputation for exhibiting “macho” behaviour — they might flare their tail feathers, pin their eyes and “strut” across the floor or tabletop.
