Distribution of the yellow-necked parrot

It has its origins in southern Mexico, Central America, and northern South America.

Physical characteristics of the yellow-necked parrot

He has the body mainly in a bright green color, with a yellow spot on the nape and red edges on the feathers of his wings. They have gray beaks and feet. They are about 47 centimeters long from the beak to the tip of the tail feathers. In captivity and receiving the necessary care, the yellow-necked parrot can live more than 60 years.

Yellow-necked Parrot feeding

Like all parrots, they will get along very well with a high-quality diet. It can be supplemented with a mixture of seeds and daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. A fresh and varied diet will help to ensure that your bird has perfect nutrition. Feeding is a good way to tame a baby yellow-necked parrot.

Care for your bird’s health

They are highly intelligent and playful birds, who like to be the center of attention. They are also excellent talkers and form very close ties with their owners. Like many of the Amazon parrots, the yellow-necked parrot can go through a complicated hormonal phase until they reach sexual maturity. They can pinch, vocalize very loudly and even avoid contact with the owners. For this reason, they are not recommended for inexperienced bird owners.

Parrots in the Amazon region are prone to being overweight. This makes it important that they are removed from their cage and are in a space where they can exercise every day. If you want to have a yellow-necked parrot, you should be able to give it a minimum of 3 to 4 hours outside its cage, every day. This will allow the bird to burn excess calories and exercise its muscles. It will also provide essential mental stimulation for all parrots.
