Buy Lilac Crowned Amazons Parrots Online For Sale
Buy Lilac Crowned Amazons Parrots are one of the smaller Amazon species and tend to have a smaller voice compared to the larger, more boisterous yellow-crowned and double yellow-headed Amazons. Lilac crowns can be loyal companions and, like most Amazons, have hearty appetites.
The lilac-crowned Amazon is a sweet and compelling character, often fearless to a fault, like many of the Amazons, but is full of personality and is a loyal companion when socialized properly. This medium-sized parrot, also called the Finsch’s Amazon, isn’t among the superstars of the Amazons, like the yellow-naped and the double yellow-headed Amazon, because it lacks the dazzle and size of these other birds, but it makes up for it in companionability.
The lilac-crowned Amazon parrot originates in Mexico, where its numbers have declined rapidly due to the demands of the pet trade, poachers, and the destruction of its habitat. This species is often confiscated by smugglers at the Mexican border, but many get through. Unfortunately, this parrot doesn’t reproduce freely in captivity, making it quite a challenge for the serious breeder or hobbyist.
Amazons in general can be challenging and temperamental birds, though some individuals are quite yielding. However, that’s not the norm, and a guardian has to understand that this self-directed animal is going to want to have its way all of the time. It can be train to perform behaviors, but it’s more likely to teach a guardian to do “tricks” rather than the other way around. The guardian has to learn Amazon’s body language to be able to predict behavior.
