Oh yes, he is!He is beautiful regardless of what species he is!
Work on gaining his trust with treats and then try stick training. I have a RLA who came to me sick. When I first got him, he would step up and seemed so sweet, but that was only because he was extremely sick. Now that he is healthy, he is a typical feisty amazon. I have been able to get him to step up on a stick and am hoping that eventually I will be able to get him to step up on my hand. I know it is easier said than done, but patience and winning him over is the key.I mentioned that Papi is 18 yes old and is a very nice bird but has no interest in stepping up on anything. I looked back on the adoption papers and it appears he's never stepped up...ughh. I just wanna hold him a little bit lol so now what???
Oh yes, he is!

Here's a few pics of Papi to spark some 'Opinions' of the possible species he may be
