The Amazon parrots are very energetic, playful and social creatures. Owning an Amazon Parrot is equivalent to owing a dog without wings.

Sometimes they tend to become moody suddenly. If not trained and handled properly from a young age, they can become fairly aggressive.
Amazon Parrot As A Pet
By nature, Amazon Parrots are energetic, playful, social and are endowed with remarkable vocal capacities. Though sometimes moody, these birds are loyal and loving companions. They love interacting with their owners and can be extremely adorable and amusing. However, their temperamental nature sometimes makes them irritable, jealous, stubborn or even loud. To avoid this they should be given required attention as given to other homely pets like cats or dogs. Inexperienced bird owners should not take up training an Amazon Parrot. It is important to be patient with Amazons while training them.
