Lilac Crowned Amazons are sweet, affectionate, loving, and very social parrots. As with all parrots, they must be socialized to keep this personality they’re so well known for.
They live 40 to 60 years, and some even older due to modern healthier diets, exercise, and mental stimulation. All Amazon parrots need a lot of interaction and socialization. As an owner, you must know how to handle a medium to a large-sized parrot, and how to train one before you purchase one. A lot of thought and consideration should go into the idea of getting one for a companion bird.
Lilac Crowned Amazons are not only strikingly beautiful, but they are a very compassionate and sweet bird that is highly intelligent.
A Lilac Crowned Amazon averages 13 inches from beak to tail. As with most Amazons, the body color is green, with many highlighting colors. What makes this Amazon unique is that the yellow”crown” on its head and parts of its face are purple. They also have red, and violet on their wing feathers.
