Yellow Naped Amazon Parrot

Rico came to us from Indiana when his owners could no longer care for him. Rico is very talkative and even sings opera. Rico and his roommate, Joplin, can be heard singing across the sanctuary! Rico’s loves to sing his own name “Riiiico!” and say “Hi!” to our staff as they pass by throughout the day. This silly bird keeps life fun and interesting around here!



Joplin also came to us when his owner could no longer care for him. He is very active and busy boy who loves to climb around his cage and tear up his toys and enrichment. He is very, very loud and loves to make a ruckus around the sanctuary. His favorite trick is to bark until he convinces all the sanctuary’s dogs to start barking with him! This crazy bird definitely brings the fun!
