I'm researching Amazons and might adopt one someday, but don't have one right now. I see the phrase "the bird chooses you" over and over, but am not sure what that means. I would appreciate specific suggestions about what to do when visiting a bird for the first time, say at a foster home. Would you try not to approach at first, then approach without reaching for example? I would guess it's not a good idea to offer a hand right off the bat. Short of spreading her tail and flashing her pupils, what would a bird do - what body language would I see - if she doesn't like me, and what would she do if she does? Thanks for any thoughts.
