The Mealy Parrot is a large species of amazon parrot found in parts of Central and South America. They have a mostly green plumage, with red or maroon colored eyes and a white eye-ring.
Mealy Parrots are gregarious in the wild, often found in flocks, sometimes even mixed with other species. In aviculture, the species is called Mealy Amazon and is known as a relatively gentle and calm species.
The population trend for the Mealy Parrot is decreasing, though due to its large range the conservation status is Least Concern as of February 2014.
