This Mealy, or Costa Rican Amazon is an example of why parrots require attention, patience, and understanding from their owners. In his former home, Huey would scream nonstop when he saw children. Parrots communicate to other members of their flocks with loud calls. By screaming, Huey thought he was communicating with his family, but this natural behavior frustrated his owners, who could no longer withstand the noise. It takes a special person to tolerate and understand parrots.
