The Yellow-Headed Amazon Parrot is bright green with a yellow head and beak with a red patch at the bend of the wing and the tail, a sometimes yellow on the end of the tail feathers, and gray legs. Their range is mainly in the pine forests and mangroves in Guatemala, and coastal slopes of Mexico. They may be seen around Los Angeles and southern Texas. The popularity as a pet has severely reduced its numbers in the wild, as it is one of the parrots that talk best. The population is estimated at 7000. It feeds on fruits, seeds, and buds.
