Speech and Sounds
The Blue Fronted Amazon is one of the quieter parrots in the family. Like all the other Amazons, it retains a good capability to mimic words and will memorize common greetings and phrases.

In general, they are not a noisy parrot and will be an acceptable apartment pet.
It’s quite a whirlwind of colors when it comes to The Blue Fronted Amazon’s plumage, and most of the combinations are full of tropical tones. The body is mainly green, tinged with yellow undertones. The face, mostly around the eyes, is bright yellow and the forehead is colored in a distinctive patch of turquoise, giving them their name, as well as a unique look. Small yellow and red patches on the top and bottom of the wings complete this exotic and colorful look.
Care & Feeding
Most Amazon parrots love to bathe; and bathing opportunities can include joining their owner in the shower, getting a spray bath, or jumping in their water dish and splashing water all about. Bathing is an important part of an Amazon’s feather health. Because of their love of food and their habit of begging for table foods from their owners, Amazon parrots tend to tip the scales toward being overweight. An Amazon parrot needs a spacious cage with toys and swings spread out, as well as a play gym/play tree, climbing rope and/or ladders to scale to encourage movement and exercise.
