This species is truly special! Not only are Panamas excellent at mimicry, they have extremely gentle personalities!
The Panama is little known in U.S. aviculture. Yellow-Crowned Amazons are often mistaken for true Panama Amazons. The Yellow-Crowned Amazon has orangish spots on both sides of the upper mandible and the rest of the beak and the cere are darker than that of true Panama Amazons.

These precious Panama Amazon chicks are just fully feathered on 5/22/01 and are ready to move to a weaning cage. They are somewhat dimorphic at this age with a female on the left and a male on the right. (DNA sexing has shown this characteristic - amount of yellow on forehead- not to be a reliable indicator.)

A cage that is manufactured for "Amazons" or "large parrots" is correct fot the Panama.
A cage with a playpen roof is recommended. Amazons enjoy chewing wood and should be provided with chunks of pine or fir wood for chewing. They also love green branches with leaves. This species should be given a large play area and be afforded a lot of time out of its cage.

Amazon Parrots require a diet high in natural beta carotenes. We recommend a fresh natural diet for Amazon Parrots. Root vegetables such as carrots, beets, and sweet potatoes are important additions to the diet. Please do not feed Amazon Parrots a processed pelleted food as the basis of their diet. Pellets do not contain the phytonutrients that whole fresh foods have. Sprouted seeds and grains are also recommended.

Here are Mario and Rosita at their home at Rancho Papagallo.
