What do I like about the idea of adding an Amazon versus a Caique?
Amazons are more interested in people (in my experience); Caiques like people too, but they want fun and adventure!
Caiques are super-friendly, probably more family-oriented; Amazons can be one-person birds and they can get aggressive towards anyone else.
Caiques live about 30 to 40 years; Amazons around 50
Caiques don’t show evidence of fear – at all! My Yellow-naped Amazon is nervous around my Caique!
Amazons talk and talk (of course, not all of them, it depends on them and how much they are taught); Caiques are not known for being talkers.
Both are wonderful and amazing – which is why we have both. Love them! Caiques love people – maybe they can’t decide whether they love people, adventure or adventures with people more!
Amazons are dedicated to you, they love your time and attention (true of parrots in general, but Amazons have this in a unique way).
