Yellow-Headed Amazon Parrot
Mixed woodland and forest, often near rivers and semi-open country.
Fruit, seeds, nuts, berries, blossoms and leaf buds.
The yellow-headed amazon lives in pairs or small flocks. In the day they gather in small groups and feed in the treetops. They are good mimic talkers and are strong fliers.
The nest is usually in a tree hollow where 2-3 eggs are incubated for 25-28 days.
