"Our Green Cheeked Amazon (Mexican Red Head) is a female named Lolita. I found her in a tree after a hurricane in 1995. She came to me immediately. I had no cage and no experience, but since she was banded, I thought it would be no problem at all to find her owner. DUH! The band contains breeder-specific information only. Suddenly I was owned by a Parrot. I bought books (pre-internet) and asked questions. I am fortunate enough to know a couple who own a pet store and specialize in large birds. They have always been a great help. Fast forward some 13 years + and we are still a happy flock. She loves her "Momma," who does nothing to maintain her save fixing her breakfast, while I get a whistle, although a special one. Over the years she has won five awards, including most social bird, at the Cinco de Mayo celebrations in May. Everyone loves her ----- except my three children, six grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Today is my 70th birthday. Do the math and you will see I am entering the desperate age. Someone who will love her and give her a good home has to appear on the horizon soon. Oh, she has a hatch date (we think) of December, 1993, making her 15 +. She has 40 to 60 years ahead of her yet. We are keeping this in mind, but until necessary she is our baby. She insists we sit with her every night from about 6 to 8 PM for her "flock hour.""
