Description:  Simply put, My all time favorite of all species of amazons: Mike, owner: Royal Bird Company

I own a Yellow Naped Amazon, LORETTA has over 100 word vocabulary, sings opera, Spanish and English. I have never seen even one  yellow naped amazon that did not become an excellent talker. They are fantastic for talking ability. African Grey parrots may be good talkers, but let me tell you this, I have never seen not even one Yellow Nape amazon that did not want to perform, talk, sing, etc, no not even one. But, I have seen many African Greys that simply were very disappointing. But that is the difference in the nature of two species. I remember as a kid one of the old Johnny carson shows with a yellow nape that would sing i left my heart in sanfrancisco, It was amazing.

The Yellow Naped Amazon when a baby or very young will be mostly green in color and has little or no yellow on the nape. Many may have yellow splashed on the forehead and crown. This yellow may or may not stay throughout the first couple molts. In some cases it may completely disappear or get larger. The yellow on the nape may start to appear within the first year and then will increase in size throughout the life. The Yellow Naped Amazon is in most experts opinion is the absolute most entertaining of all amazons or in some cases all birds. 

This species never fails in becoming the center of attention. Yellow naped amazons are one of the best talking species of all birds. Yes, even better than African Greys. Well lets just say Yellow Napes talk more and will talk in front of strangers where African Greys seem to be slightly shy. Of course there are exceptions to this, as some greys are also good talkers in front of strangers, but this is not the norm. This species (Yellow Naped) will learn at a very young age. We have had many Yellow napes start vocalizing actual words at 10-15 weeks old. Some even younger. If you are looking for the perfect talking species, then this one is for you. Keeping in mind that most amazons should not be left unsupervised around very young children as with most all parrots there is a danger of nipping. If you are old enough to remember the Carson Show, many times there was a Yellow Nape brought on the show, that bird would sing, laugh, cry, sing opera, etc. That is what Yellow Napes Do. They do not even need training...Most of the time when you see a green parrot on TV that has a very good talking ability its normally the Yellow Naped Amazon. I personally own a Yellow Nape Amazon named Loretta, This bird is amazing . She speaks spanish, english, sings opera, etc.  She is the perfect example of the talented ability of the Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot.

If you want a bird that will become one of the best talking birds, the most entertaining you have ever seen, This Bird is for you.

subspecies; there are several recognizable geo variations in this genus, we have researched and bred several

Yellow Naped Amazons are found in several Central American Countries, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and also  Mexico

NOMINATE: auropalliata: This form is the normal seen Yellow Naped Amazon

PARVIPES: this variation is  slightly smaller, has red at the bend of the wing, mandibles are different color,mostly lighter than the nominate form, same talking ability.

Unclassified: HONDURAN:one variation we have seen comes from the western southern area of Honduras in around the Nicaraguan border region, this variation of yellow naped amazon is large,has no yellow on the nape or front forehead until much older, we have had a pair that we know are 15 years old and they have only a few flecks of yellow on the nape so far and no yellow on the forehead at all and in which the front forehead may never get yellow at all, the head is quite large and is broad, When we sent some video and info to our friend Howard Voren, the world authority on the species, he was excited, he stated that he saw many of these in that region of honduras while there collecting birds back in the late 70's and early 80's, He said there was a very distinct difference in these compared to other variations, He also said he experienced the talking ability to be greater than average.he also stated that not many was brought out due to the region being inaccesible, and these were rare in the USA and that by breeders not really understanding the differences would just throw any yellow naped pairs together for breeding without knowing there was differences and they did not care.he was impressed by the birds and thanked me for keeping them seperated. We have 2nd generation and 3rd generation of these and we strive to keep the lines pure. they are something to see, when showing off at breeding time.The babies are overly large and seem to be talented in mimic at a very early age.

 

Note: We have kept, selective bred and researched this species for half of our lifetime. We have studied everything about this species, we have researched the geo differences in colors and sizes, the nesting patterns, the results of selective breeding,incubation,brooding,nutrtional needs, and much more, we are many times called upon when other breeders and owners need answers on this species. We have shared and collaborated info with the great Howard Voren of Vorens Aviary, the worlds authority on amazona species, the first world breeder of the rare blue mutation yellow naped amazon, We have written articles and shared research info with other breeders across the world also sharing info with the wildlife ministry of HONDURAS the main origin of most original ancestors of yellow napes in the USA today,

We also have shared info with a small consortium of breeders across Honduras and Nicaragua that are breeding this species and others, they are working hard to help the declining wild populations and also maybe be able to be successful enough to actually do a release of some of the domestically bred birds they are working with. We have gathered one of the largest databases on the incubation, hatches, feeding habits, flock interactions, pair bonding and much more.

 We have one of the USA largest and most successful selective collection of Yellow Naped Amazons, For over 35 years our very selective breeding of this most amazing species has given Royal Bird Company the 2nd and 3rd generation breeders produced from our own stock over these long years. We paired birds that were like in coloration, temperament and talking ability, only the best was paired with the best therefore the offspring is absolutely the finest specimens available, our super stock baby yellow naped amazons are some of the most talented birds in talking ability, best in family companions and the absolute perfect feathering and colorations. Its all in the genes, breed the best and get the best. we do not breed feather pickers or problem birds therefore our stock and babies produced from these birds are the cream of the flock. If you want the highest quality bloodline of this species then you have come to the right place.      You get what you pay for.

NOTE: we never recommend that a person own or purchase birds just for talking ability. Please purchase them because you love them and can give them a forever home.. Be a Responsible Pet Owner..
