Facts about Gallo

  • Breed: Amazon
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9916234

Gallo is possibly a Panama/Yellow Naped Amazon.  He is around 37 years of age. He was hand-carried to the United States after being purchased in Guatemala.   He had rubbed his 'cheek' feathers off, but we have been applying coconut oil to help him with any irritation that he had.  As you can see in the photo of him, they are growing back!




He loves to talk! He says "Hi!", "What you doing?" Want a peanut?", "yeah" and also has interesting mumbling conversations with himself or you. Like most Amazons, he can get a little loud. For example, if there are other birds in the house he wants to talk to. He also sings "I'm a beautiful bird", "Take me out to the ballpark", and some musical scales. 

He steps up on a stick from the cage. Will step up on an arm from the floor or outside of the cage. Does not like scratched or petted. Does not seem too interested in fresh fruit or vegetables. But he loves nuts.



Gallo is letting them scritch his head through the cage bars!

Gallo is currently being fostered. If you want to meet Gallo, please contact us and let us know. :)

Our Adoption Process...

Procedurally, if you wish to adopt a parrot from our organization, you must first become a member. That requires return of the membership application (attached) along with a $25.00 single or $30.00 family membership fee. The membership fees go towards the membership, the discount on food and toys in our store and the home visits. Members may adopt a parrot at such time as their Adoption Application (attached) for the parrot in question has been approved. Adoption fees vary and are due and payable in full prior to the parrot being placed into the home, but are fully refundable for a period of 30 days upon return of the parrot to C.A.A.R.E. in the same condition as received within said 30 days. This is to ensure that the parrot fits into the family well. Home visits are generally required as part of the adoption process to ensure that a proper environment is being provided for the parrot. We have contracts signed and in place for the well being of the parrot or parrots with guidelines and stipulations.
