The red-lored amazon or red-lored parrot (Amazona autumnalis) is a species of amazon parrot, native to tropical regions of the Americas, from eastern Mexico south to Ecuador where it occurs in humid evergreen to semi-deciduous forests up to 1,100 m altitude.
Not originally known from El Salvador, a pair – perhaps escaped from captivity – nested successfully in 1995 and 1996 in the outskirts of San Salvador and the species might expand its range permanently into that country in the future. This species has also established feral populations in several California cities.
Amazons make great pets but they are should not be the first choice for novice parrot keepers. With lots of research to ensure the Amazon is the right bird for you, they make great very affectionate, and loyal companions. They are very intelligent and need a lot of time and commitment from their owners to keep them happy.
Noise level between 1 to 10:
I think we have to give an Amazon an 8, they are very loud but not as loud as a cockatoo or a macaw. Amazons like to scream even when happy, playing or with their “loved ones” so if you are thinking of buying/rescuing an Amazon please think if you could cope with the noise for the next 50 years.
Amazons begin to mate at the beginning of the warm season, generally in April or May, with the laying and brooding in the early summer. An Amazon female will lay between 2 to 4 white eggs and she will brood for 26 to 28 days.
Amazons are prone to aspergillosis, bacterial infections, Upper Respiratory Infections, Pox-virus, Infections, Vitamin A Deficiency, Obesity, Fatty Liver Syndrome, Cloacal Papillomas, Seizures, and Cancer.
Amazons are especially susceptible to Polyoma, Feather Plucking / Mutilation, and Papilloma.
