Mature Yellow Nape

My Jakiepoo is getting so much yellow lately. Jake is a 41 yr old hen parvipes Yellow Nape. Just thought i'd share,she's the love of my life. Notice her yellow collar ?

Re: Mature Yellow Nape

She is gorgeous, its amazing how they change. Merlin as 3x as much red on his head as when he was a baby.

I need to ask you, after his recent molt, he grew a yellow feather on his head. Have you ever seen a mrh amazon w/yellow feathers on their head?

Re: Mature Yellow Nape

Yes i've heard of that , not uncommon, i've seen older Napes with a red feather or two also. I think most species of amazon yellow as they age.( except the Blue mutation YNs and they turn white)

Re: Mature Yellow Nape

What an absolute beauty! Do YNAs gain more yellow as they age? Kazi has a bit on his forehead and a small patch on his nape. I'm curious if there's anyway to tell age based on feather coloration since Kazi's band was removed before he came to the shelter.
