Never had a bird before, have the opportunity to rescue one
I usually stay in the Degu forum, but need to pop in over here for a bit of an education.
I've never had a bird before, but have babysat 2 different Cockatiels, and really enjoyed them.
I have the opportunity to rescue a Blue Fronted Amazon parrot from an older gentleman who is in a nursing home and won't be getting out. The parrot is 4 years old, and I am trying to find as much info as I can about what kind of care these guys need. If I do accept the bird, I want to take good care of him (or her). I don't want to just have a bird in a cage that I throw seeds at - I want to do it right.
I've read a bit about them so far, but am just interested in maybe links to the very best Parrot websites - maybe even a book, for a beginner to be able to decide if I can take proper care of this bird.
Thank you! I am very excited at the prospect of maybe getting a bird, but I want to make sure that I make a decision that's best for this bird. He (or she) doesn't need to be displaced more than absolutely necessary.
