Congratulations Allee, and welcome home Bingo!

He is a handsome bird, and yes, the amazon odor is intoxicating. My Gonzo smells like roses!

Your intuitive nature will allow Bingo settle in nicely and blossom!

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

I have no clue on what species Bingo could be, but he is a handsome boy! I too just recently joined the Amazon family with my blue front, Willie, and he has already brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined. Hopefully Bingo does the same for you!

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Allee, I am just so thrilled that Bingo and Jack are finally with you! Those lucky guys will soon realize the lottery they won by being loved by you, my Friend
Looking so forward to all the stories of their journey with you.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Welcome home Bingo (from one Bingo to another).

From the sound of the other posts you have uploaded more photos that the ones in this thread. I guess I missed them. I am not an expert on multitude of Amazon sub-spices. I have read that there is some difference just between Yellow Napes that come from different areas.

I hope once Bingo is settled in you can post a video. would like to show my Bingo a movie of yours.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Congratulations Allee on your beautiful new buddy! I am sure once Bingo settles in he will blossom into a wonderful (though slightly evil, being an amazon and all) companion! Bet way to reduce stress and make a friend for life is food. As I'm sure you're aware, amazons just LOVE food

Just an opinion, but that blocky beak and his overall appearance really strikes me immediately as a YNA who just doesn't have much yellow. A mealy would have some blue on the crown of the head and I don't know why, but just doesn't strike me as a mealy. I wonder what your vet will say? Surely they can tell!

When I first got Gabby, I thought that smell was due to hand-feeding formula that was stuck to his feathers. On Facebook, one of the things said of Gabby by people who knew him: "He smelled like honey."

What an incredible little being he was. He looked like a flower and he smelled like honey! I haven't noticed that smell from Kizzy, but it might be I'm so used to it, I've filtered it out as "normal." My mother said she smelled it, so I'm sure Kizzy has that definitive scent.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Allee,

Please post the complete set of photos so that everyone can make a guess at, which member of this DNA Family Bingo is part!

Aside from coloration of the feathers, the two other telling features are overall size with the Mealy topping out the family in overall size and weight, with Yellow-Naped in the center, but still big and than the Yellow-Crowned being the lightest and smaller framed of the DNA family.

And, I believe that you stated that he was about seven years old, correct? This would have them nearing their full Adult size and with the exception of the YNA's near complete Adult coloration.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Thank you for all the kindness! Your support makes all the difference!

So sorry for the delay, I spent most of the day with this handsome fellow. We set up his cage a little better, he wasn't comfortable coming out so I moved things around and asked permission a lot. He was so adorable and polite. After we were done he entertained everyone with his sweet voice. He's a little charmer. I tried to get some better photos in better light.















At first I thought the black on the feathers on his neck were stress bars but up close it's only the tips of the feathers, like someone applied the color with a very fine soft brush. I'm not sure if you can see it but there are pale blue feathers on the top of his head and on his neck.

I am fairly certain now he is at least eight years old, information is sketchy but I'm pretty sure.
