Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot

Amazona aestiva

This species has an extremely large range, and, despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations).

There are two subspecies, identified by red (A.a.aestiva) and yellow (A.a.xanthopteryx) on bend of wing, but with a broad range of intergradation.
