Bird Of The Month

Samantha Rose is a Double Yellow Headed Amazon (Amazona oratrix).  She is 21 years old and is in her second home having joined her current flock in 2008.  Sam is a gentle girl, chooses to limit her human vocabulary but loves making Amazon sounds.  She always sounds so happy!  The Double Yellow Headed Amazon is an endangered species native to Mexico and northern Central America.  Because of their endangered status only captive bred birds can be owned.  They are known to have charming personalities and are highly desirable as pets.  Samantha’s humans of course think that she is a “practically perfect parrot in every way” Sam resides with a lively flock of 3 African Grey parrots, a Blue Fronted Amazon (who she is constantly competing with!) and a male Eclectus that calls Sam his “girl”.
