He's a handsome boy. I love they way they look when they're wet.

Re: One wet Amazon..

Yup, that is one wet Amazon. Looks much like Julio did this morning. Must have been shower day in Eastern North America.

Re: One wet Amazon..

Seems to really enjoy it too. He'll let me extend his arms and gently rub the pits and sleeves. Even fan his rudder for me to message it from him all the while making soft amazon grunts. I tried to do flap flap lessons while doing this but he almost lost his grip again on the perch stick. Maybe next time I'll have him on my hand so I can gently hold his feetsies.

Re: One wet Amazon..

Not a good idea to have them practice flapping when really wet! Get a weight when he is wet like this. You will be surprised just how heavy they are when wet. Even a strong flyer like Julio will not be able to fly with lift when wet to this level. Take care when moving a very wet Parrot as they can very easily end up on the floor.

Love the interaction you and Amy have going!

Re: One wet Amazon..

Gloria does the water dish thing. She starts by dunking her head and splashing it everywhere. She has two water dishes and uses one for bathing and one for drinking. When she starts the splashing, then I know she wants a shower so I have a large spray bottle that I shower her with while she splashes--just like the outdoor birds in their bird bath. I can spray her wing pits and underside. There's no way she'd go in the shower but this seems to work quite well and she gets quite soaked--after which she goes on the high perch under the avian light to dry off.
