    Favorite Things about your Zon

    To all the Amazon People... I'm so tired of everyone being afraid of Amazons. They get a bad name because of bad owner(s) & abuse over a 60 year life. Criteria for posts... Please write a list if you own more than one: One positive item per bird(s) per post. So if you own 5 only 5 lines...
