Meet Poncho and Lefty

Tiko If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we had to leave our Yellow-shouldered Amazon, Tiko, back in the US with my best friend while we sorted out how to bring him into Mexico.  Unfortunately, it seems impossible to bring him into Mexico at this time, due to red tape relating to bird flu.  A picture of Tiko is above.

They are Half Moon Conures, also known as Orange-Fronted Conures....
