Mexican Red Head
The Mexican Red Head Amazon is an
even tempered relatively quiet parrot and colorful bird. They
possess talking ability in the medium to high range and seem to
enjoy the company of visitors and bond closely to their owners.
Their heads are crowned with a striking red hue and a lavender
blue band extends from above the eyes to the neck, making for a
very unique look. This is a very good choice for those who are
inexperienced with Amazons.
In 1997, this endangered Amazon
was listed on the CITIES Appendix 1. They were once quite common
in the United States. Now that export from Mexico is illegal
they are much harder to find and are only occasionally available
for sale as pets.
