Amazon Parrot Displays Colourful Feathers as he Enjoys a Spray Shower
In this video Tikal the Amazon takes a shower on his play stand. He’s very enthused about the spray bottle, and opens his wings wide to make sure that he gets well sprayed. Obviously he is enjoying himself, happily vocalizing to share his joy with the world. As the water is sprayed he changes his angles, and shows off his brilliantly coloured feathers. Water droplets on the feathers look almost iridescent, as if he is wearing a million sparkling diamons. At times Tikal ducks his head as if to hide under his wings, but it’s all part of showertime joy.
Tikal the Amazon is a 44 year old Amazon Parrot who enjoys saying hello and hanging out with the flock. He’s very easy going, enjoys afternoon naps and watching the world as it goes by. Tikal loves hanging out with the rest of the flock which includes Tycho (A 23 year old African Grey who believes cameras are parrot eating monsters), Max the Moluccan (A 25 year old Moluccan who believes that all hoomans are ridiculous and that it’s always a great time for snacks), and their pet hooman (a featherless biped who doesn’t listen). Online, the flock are very popular across many social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube where they enjoy entertaining their flockers with daily antics.
Amazon Parrots can live up to 50 years in captivity. There are many sub species of Amazon parrots. Their bodies are predominantly green with yellow, red and blue markings, really showing off when they open up their wings. Like all Parrots they require a lot of attention, nutrition and care. Amazons are very social and need a lot of interaction and mental stimulation.
