Corry – Tucumán Amazon a Bird Tricks reader requested that we write an article in honor of an infant Mexican redheaded amazon that passed away. Though his passing is heartbreaking and difficult to contemplate, there are lessons for all of us in it. We appreciate the reader who shared her friend’s tale with us.
The incident is straightforward and could easily occur to any of us. The friend of this reader intended to bring her Amazon to work. For her commute to work, she loaded his carrier into her mother’s vehicle.
When her mother came to take her up six hours later, she questioned her daughter about why the Amazon wasn’t there. They only understood what had happened at that point. She had left for work and her mother had left for work without understanding the bird was still in the car. In the heat, their amazon parrot had died.
I can only imagine how painful it must be. Even though losing a cherished pet is difficult, carrying the burden of guilt must be excruciating. So many harmless things can go horribly wrong so quickly. They both have my sympathy.
We wish to keep the birds we keep as pets as safe as we can. But the first thing to realize regarding safety and birds is that it’s impossible to give them a completely risk-free and safe habitat. Every choice and every scenario entails both risks and benefits. It is up to each of us to choose which risks are worthwhile and which ones are not by getting to know our specific birds and their environments.

Our two Cayman Brac Amazon Parrots, hatched late in May to our mating pair Mango and Beebop, have been amazing to watch grow. We are very pleased with these two lovely birds because we are the only establishment in Cayman with a license to breed Cayman Islands parrots in captivity.
Our chicks were born without feathers and with their eyes closed. By the time they were 10 days old, they had grown well, were kept in a warm environment under close medical supervision, and were nourished by receiving food that both parents had regurgitated.
