"My girlfriend and I have two young male red lored amazons. We got them both from a breeder and they have been handfed from the first day they hatched. They are just wonderful. We had bought one first 'Junior', but decided to get one of his siblings as well. This way we can leave them for half a day, or even a whole day, as long as they have enough fresh water and food. They are very affectionate birds. 'Junior' who is five days older then his little brother, has cast his love and affection on me, whilest the younger, has taken to my girlfriend. They both get to fly two to three times a day. We let them out in the morning while we prepare their morning snack and they both enjoy watching us prepare their food. If we start this before they are let out, they will become very vocal and upset. They like to cuddle and when they fly in our livingroom, they often land on our heads or shoulders. They often groom us, like they groom each other. They use their beak to go through our hair and also my beard get the same treatment. I am a merchent sailor and I am away for 4 weeks at the time. The first days when I am gone, the older bird, sits on the latch above the stairs and calls out to me. He does eventually stop this. When I enter the house again after four weeks, both of them make 'happy sounds' and lighten up. If they are not let out at once when I get home, they will be very vocal again. As soon as they are let out, they both fly to me and start chatting as if to let me know what has been going on while I was away. Red Lored or 'Yellow cheeked' are very social birds, and they love company. They are very trusting, even to complete strangers to them. As long as people are calm and soft spoken at first, they often fly over to guest and sit on their shoulder and groom them as well. They are both great company for my girlfriend while I am away and we both enjoy them when I am home as well. Jonas Ellgaard, "
