Artist's Description

The Yellow-headed Amazon (Amazona oratrix), also known as the Yellow-headed Parrot and Double Yellow-headed Amazon, is an endangered Amazon parrot of Mexico and northern Central America. This species is part of the Amazona ochrocephala complex, which also includes the Yellow-napped Amazon (A. auropalliata). This complex, “a taxonomic headache” s considered a single species by some authorities and split into three species by others. The split is mainly based on the amount of yellow in the plumage, the colour of the legs and bill. DEDICATED TO LOREE my wonderful co-host in Mother Nature’s Finest group… thanks for all you do Loree… you are appreciated.

FEATURED: PETS ARE US

This species lives in riparian forest and areas with scattered trees, as well as evergreen forest in Belize and mangroves in Guatemala. It occurs in singly or in pairs, in small groups, and occasionally in big flocks. Their numbers have been reduced drastically—by 90 percent, to 7,000, from the mid 1970s to 1994, and by 68 percent from 1994 to 2004 because of capture for the pet trade and habitat destruction. A visit to the Invercargill Pet shop, and who could resist a photo of this beauty through the bars… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Southland Invercargill New Zealand Sept. 2012
