Nicky & Zachary's Story...
This bonded pair of thirty-something Amazons are characters! Nicky is a Double Yellow Headed and Zachary is a Yellow Naped. These birds’ original owner (male) passed away many years ago and his parents have since provided a loving home. Nicky & Zack just love vocal human interaction and will talk and laugh your ears off! Each has a large vocabulary and an assortment of whistles and songs that will always keep you entertained. They have always been each others’ best friend and don’t require much maintenance other than their food , water and a loving home. Due to some balance issues, both are adjusting to new perches and also new foster home, so they are a little timid about leaving their room and going outdoors. Since they have not been handled much over the years, both are re- learning to step up, and prefer hanging out on top of their cages during the day. At times, Zack seems to want to interact more with a human, so he may know some tricks we haven’t seen yet. They will let you know when they awake, as they begin their chatter as soon as they see the morning light. They enjoy fruits, veggies, grains and nuts and happily eat pellets throughout the day. Not screamers, these two will chatter amongst themselves most of the time. Morning and late afternoon vocalizations are normal and may be a little loud for some. Not sure how these two would react to children or other pets, as they are older birds and are still somewhat unpredictable. If you are looking to have some company with a pair of spunky old timers with some good times to share with you, won’t you give Nicky and Zack a chance to find their forever home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nicky & Zachary, a Tampa Amazon was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Amazon for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Amazon from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Tampa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Amazon breeders who help with Amazon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
