Loudness: The Double Yellow Head Amazon is an excellent talker. They have a very musical quality and so they can bolt out a great rendition of “Old McDonald had a farm”…however don’t expect them to sing on key. This bird will mimic what they hear the most so try to remember that when talking to your bird. It is not uncommon for these birds to call out to their owners if they feel they are being neglected. Although their noise level can be loud, this bird can be distracted away from yelling if they are stimulated with toys and exercise and time out of their cage.
