Albert, the Yellow Nape Amazon Parrot loves attention and almost asked me to take this picture of him. I thought it would make a great jigsaw puzzle.
As with all the jigsaw puzzles, you may have to scroll over to get the whole puzzle in the window. You can make this easier (or harder) by changing the number and shape of puzzle pieces.

The Yellow Nape Amazon is considered to be one of the "hot three" Amazon Parrots. The other two "hot three" are the Double Yellow Head Amazon and the Blue Fronted Amazon. These are three of the most popular Amazon parrots and the males (in particular) can become unpredictable and aggressive during certain times of the year. The attitude does pass and they do become wonderful pets again each time.
Albert loves to talk and sing and can usually be persuaded to sing when he has an audience watching him.
Avian Publications have several books on Amazon Parrots that you may find interesting.
