White-fronted Amazon Parrot

White-fronted Amazon Parrot Long -lived (4o years or more) and noisy, these parrots can be seen and heard in the hundreds overhead and in the acacia trees north of the marina’s final approach channel. The White-fronted Amazon Parrots seen near the marina tend to have a yellow patch above their beaks, rather than the white patch normally associated with the species. This could be a local variant, or it could be a sign that most of the birds we saw and photographed were juveniles (or, of course, our identification could be wrong). They nest in tree hollows. What’s not to love? They are wild parrots, neither caged nor chained to a perch, beautiful, intelligent, and vociferous.
