Blue Fronted Amazon – Species Information

Tags: , . December 22, 2009

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.

Double Yellow-headed Amazon – Species Information

Tags: . December 24, 2009


Amazona oratrix

Also known as the Yellow-headed Amazon and Yellow-headed parrot, this is one of the largest of the amazons.  Listed as a species Amazona oratrix, by IUCN.

It is also variously divided into subspecies A.oratrix oratrix (including A.o.magna from the Gulf slope of Mexico), A.o. belizensis, A.o.hondurensis, A.o.tresmariae and A.o.guatemalensis (provisional).

Amazona oratrix has undergone a dramatic population decline, judged at 90% since the mid-1970s, to 7,000 birds in 1994.  Numbers continue to decline primarily due to habitat loss and nest poaching for the wild bird trade.
