Rico is a Blue Fronted Amazon parrot, one of two that I keep as companions, my other is a double yellow headed amazon, who is about 6yrs old, Rico is still a baby, I believe his hatch day just recently came and went, so he is about a year old.
Both parrots are banded and legal, purchased in the US, they are wonderful birds - NOISY BIRDS - but I love them, they can speak over 100 words and phrases, they copy me, my kids, my husband, my other amazon even sings opera.
If you ever find you really have the time in your life for a companion parrot, Amazons in my opinion are one of the best to invest into. They will entertain you - for life. =)

Wow this is stunning Susan. Well done for sure. He is so cute, too. My mom raised birds years ago. She passed away in 1998 . She raised Parakeets, Finch and Cockatiels. She also had this little Parrot (he looked like this one: https://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=AwrTcXd4oVNT8H4AP4yJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTIzMnV2amJ0BHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1nBG9pZAM5ZjBhMTI2OTM2MTcxZTVlNGQ4Yzk0NjI5ZGU4MDYzMgRncG9zAzMxBGl0A2Jpbmc-?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3F_adv_prop%3Dimage%26va%3Dparrotlet%2Bparrot%26fr%3Duh3_my_web_gs%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D31&w=1600&h=1200&imgurl=4.bp.blogspot.com%2F_erMJaarSbKA%2FTSYORWkTUeI%2FAAAAAAAABIc%2FB-3GDG97CVI%2Fs1600%2Fchristmas2010%2B008.JPG&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thebirdspapaya.com%2F2011%2F01%2Fbird-cage.html&size=191.0KB&name=Quequito+the+%3Cb%3EParrotlet%3C%2Fb%3E%21&p=parrotlet+parrot&oid=9f0a126936171e5e4d8c94629de80632&fr2=&fr=uh3_my_web_gs&tt=Quequito+the+%3Cb%3EParrotlet%3C%2Fb%3E%21&b=0∋=96&no=31&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=11khm9p2p&sigb=13ju1gouh&sigi=12ug1p46j&sigt=10ugq7eji&sign=10ugq7eji&.crumb=nuWhBinG8c9&fr=uh3_my_web_gs). He used to sit on my son's chin and pick his baby teeth when my son was about 3-4 months old. I have a photo somewhere.LOL Anyways, he would get very noisy especially if someone came to visit or is my mom was on the phone. So my mom discovered how to shut him up. She leaned the broom handle against his cage and he wouldn't make a sound until she took it away.LOL. She only did this when my mom was talking to someone and she had to make him be quiet....
