About Icarus

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Bird
  • General Color: Green

Hatch Date: 1996  

Icarus is a Double Yellow Headed Amazon, believed to be male.  
He is 25 years old.
He is in good health and is very colorful, both inside and outside. 
He recently went to the vet for a wellness visit and is a little overweight, typical for amazons, but not bad.
His  choana  has pointy papillae and his feet and feathers are in good health. 

Icarus tends to favor women over men. 
He is particularly bonded to the family's daughter who has since become and adult and moved out.
She works long hours and sadly is not able to give Icarus the attention, time and home he deserves. 

Icarus likes to hang out both inside and on top of his cage.  Icarus was hand raised as a chick.

Icarus, while not aggressive, can take a nip at times if a stranger (especially male) wants to handle him (we think he is a male)

If he is in a playful  mood,  he will swing in or on his cage and make cooing sounds and emits a sweet smell.
Icarus loves bird toys such as ropes and cardboard.

Icarus has a small vocabulary and will call out “mom” when the daughter or wife enter the room. 

Icarus has a healthy diet of ZuPreem fruit pellets and enjoys bananas, strawberries, peaches, apples as well as pasta and vegetables.

Icarus has been around large and small birds for his entire life however has not interacted with them. 

Icarus is being fostered in Manalapan, NJ. H e will only be adopted to a home within driving distance; we do not ship our adoptable birds.  For the Love of Birds is a network of dedicated foster home throughout NJ and Eastern PA, we have no central location. As our adoptable birds are living in volunteer, or in their family's home, we only allow approved applicants to meet our birds. If interested in meeting Icarus please review our adoption policies and complete an adoption application on our website ftlob.rescuegroups.org.
