If an amazon is displaying this kind of body language, it is best to back off!

Pleased to see the Amazon climb back up his cage but wondering what happened to the somewhat clueless violinist as we didn't see him again, ER maybe?

I didn't even think that i would see Mealy Amazon (for sale) in Finland. All things combined (mainly his background story, i think i would got parrot of any kind with that kind of sad story) it was a love in first sight

I dont know how many Mealys there is in Finland but i'm pretty sure the number is really low.

Haven't been able to weight him yet but compared to my normal size female cag (one sitting on my left arm and one on right) i would say the mealy weighs A LOT more... Cant say any more accurately yet, 50%-100% more

E: Actually i held my friends cockatoo just this morning and it's not going badly wrong if i say they weight the same, his cockatoo weights 670g

E2: Texted my friend and his cockatoo actually weights 730g

We're always "test running" some names for a few days and then changing if and when it doesn't sound good.

He is from Sweden, He speaks some Swedish so we're calling him "Åke" right now and i think this will be hes name


E: For example of our great imagination in naming, we got two juvenile green iguanas, red and green... So they're (at the moment) named Red and Green =)... But that is mainly because we cant tell their gender yet, my friend has huge male iguana named Alice, i dont want that =)
