Comments

The smallest of the Amazon Parrots is native to Central America and Mexico. It is most often seen in small flocks of up to 20 birds, which may congregate to form groups that number into the hundreds. It can imitate a range from 30 to 40 different sounds. Like other large parrots, the White-fronted Amazon has a long potential life span, usually around 40 years.
