Looks photoshopped or something.
To me it looks like some type of Amazon but the color isn't right..

Now that I look at it more it also looks like a Caique to me but majorly photoshopped to change the color.

That's cool. I saw it in some parrot pictures and it looked so pretty that I needed to know what it was. Thanks for the replies

Get the latest issue of Bird Talk. Great article on all the different Mini Macaws.
Are they still your first choice for a bird?

I'm not so sure about which bird I am going to get. I have been going to my nearest bird farm and am still unsure on which bird that I want. This Sunday I am going to a bird expo and am getting a cage and later I will get a bird. It's so hard to choose.

It is hard to chose. Which bird farm are you going to? I don't know which part of so cal your in but you might try Anza, if its close enough for you. I just called them and they have a great selection, I'm going to be buying one or two birds from them right away.

Cool I know of Magnolia, have you ever been to Bracken, in redlands. They don't have as much of a selection right now though. Anza is probably farther than you want to go then.

Awsome Shannon, can't wait to see photos.

Back on topic, I didn't know there were blue mutation Amazons. The photo in this thread totally looks badly edited to me rather than authetic. It's odd.
