||Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot|
||Palmetto, Florida, USA|
is Jake (also known as Jakiepoo) she's a 41-year-old hen parvipes
Yellow Nape Amazon. There are four kinds of Yellow Naped Amazon parrots,
named by the region they originate - Amazona Ochrocephala Parvipes is from
the Honduras - Nicaragua area. These birds, like you can see on Jake, have
some red colored feathers on the bend of the wings, another feature
specific to them is mentioned in their Scientific name which means - small
feet, this is in relation to the other subspecies like the Ochrocephala
Auropalliata, which have bigger feet, no red on the wing bend and a black beak.
I've had Jake since she was three weeks old with no feathers. I thought she
was a boy, then just couldn't change her name. Her favorite game is to roll
over on her back and play "footies", she loves to ride in the truck and go
places. She goes everywhere and does everything with me, and is quite
famous with my family and friends. She loves to play and to sing opera, and
of course eat. She has several videos on YouTube under the name
MsJakiepoo. She's friendly with most people and will allow petting, and she
really loves my wife who can do almost anything with her, but I'm the man
in her life.
