Talking Yellow Nape Amazon is one of the most talented talkers
of the amazon species.
This very intelligent member of the amazon family will usually start
learning to talk as young as 4 months, and their capacity to learn
new words and phrases increases as they get older. This is one of
the few parrots that can have a beautiful singing voice and is often
taught to sing songs from the opera.
The Yellow Nape is also one of the larger of the amazon species.
Although the Yellow Nape Amazon can be a wonderful talker, it is
not a pet for everyone. The owner of a Yellow Nape must develop
and maintain a dominance over this amazon to help curb the tendency
to become aggressive and temperamental.
It is not uncommon for the Yellow Nape Amazon to become unpredictable
and extremely aggressive at maturity, especially during breeding
seasons. They think of their owners as their mates, and their jealousy
and possessiveness may even cause them to attack the person that
they most care for. During these times of the year, it is usually
best to keep most amazon species caged so that they don't seriously
hurt someone. As long as potential owners are aware of the tendencies
of the Yellow Nape Amazon, properly train them, and take necessary
precautions during breeding seasons when the parrot is mature, the
Yellow Nape Amazon can be a very good companion bird and a constant
source of entertainment
