Welcome home, Bingo!

Hahaha, I just couldn't stand not being one of the cool kids and finding out for myself if Amazons have more fun!!!

A sad story and strange circumstances but for now I'd rather focus on the positive. Please help us welcome Bingo to his new home and to the planet's best parrot forum.

A very special thank you to our Terry57 and to Sailboat for the crash course on how to proceed after you rescue a stressed Amazon. The advice they both gave me was solid gold. Our members, our forum friends and family are amazing.

I had no clue what sub species this handsome guy is but two members have guessed from photos, Mealy Amazon or Yellow Crowned Amazon. Either way, my family has been concerned for these birds for more than four years. I did say these birds, the CAG is with my husband in his apartment three hours away for now. They had an immediate connection so I may not get to meet Jack the CAG until next week, if then.

These photos aren't great and Bingo's cage is not clean or set up very well yet, he's showing signs of stress so we are trying to keep things as calm as possible.





Sorry for the photo quality, I didn't think Bingo would appreciate an all out photo shoot just yet.

He has a small yellow stripe on the top of his head, a couple of yellow feathers on the back of his neck, a little red patch on the top of each wing, and four solid red feathers on the underside of each wing, a little red on the sides of his tail. He has a lot of stress bars on his wings and no eyelashes. Even though he needs a bath, I finally know why a lot of folks sniff their Amazons.

He seems to like me or to wants to like me. He got excited when I sang Bingo for him and joined in with B-I-N-G-O. He also reached over and preened my hair a few times. I usually don't fall in love so quickly but I always leave room for exceptions.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

big welcome to bingo! Looks like a happy if slightly nervous. I'm sure in time that'll be a remarkably happy amazon. I wish I had the ability to look after so many beautiful birds like others here

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Welcome home and to Parrot Forum BINGO! I have a feeling there is going to be tons of stories as you open-up and you have one wonderful place to open-up in and around Big Guy.

And, I know you are going to live up to the strutting standards of an Amazon! Its going to be fun to locate you within the extended DNA Family of the Yellow Napes: Mealy, Yellow-Nape and Yellow-Crowned! Currently, the belief is that you are not a Yellow-Nape and one vote each way as to a Mealy or a Yellow-Crowned. The pictures in different light are just as varied!

Aaaa, the scent of Amazon in the Morning!

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

As I re-read this thread...I'm sniffin'away at Amy lol. I cant describe the "scent"..kind of sweet

I read Al's post about his Salty boy going all Pavarotti on him,so yesterday,while Amy was on my shoulder,we watched a couple 'zon you tube opera video's, one with a BF and her human singing away. OMG Amy went into full blow Amazon gibberish and song! I never heard her get so excited
Salty may have started an Amazonia trend!

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

Welcome Bingo ! I hope your new home is a happy place for you for the rest of your life.
You look like a Mealy Amazon to me ( note the wide eye circle of bare skin) but the yellow on your forehead and the red shoulder tips....hmmm you have us guessing. But either way you lucked out, as your new Mom is a very experienced parrot person. You can trust her.

Allee - be patient with Bingo, as we know you will. Bingo is going to get loud one or two times a day. Really loud. Sing with him, nothing distracts Amazons from screaming like sing along with Mom or Dad.

Re: Welcome home, Bingo!

How old is this bird? If he's a juvenile, I'm bucking the trend and voting yellow nape. The yellow on the nape doesn't come in until they are a few years old. Wikipedia says between three and five years. He already has a few yellow feathers there and the pattern of yellow on his head is nothing like that of a yellow crown. He looks a lot more like the young napes I've known and handled. I haven't been around a lot of yellow crowns, especially young ones, but this bird's conformation, shade of green, beak coloration and pattern of yellow are saying "yellow nape" to me.

This opinion may be worth exactly what you paid for it. We'll see. Maybe we should have a bet. Losers donate $5 to the avian charity of their choice. I wouldn't mind giving a few bucks to a good charity.
