Years ago a man called me and told me that he had two of these Amazons in his back yard. He wanted to know if they would learn to talk if he captured them. Since he spoke perfect English, I became very confused. Finally he explained that he lived north of Rio de Janeiro, which concerned me because they are endangered.
