About the White-fronted Parrot

Also known as: White-fronted Amazon, Spectacled Amazon Parrot, Spectacled Amazon, Spectacled Parrot, White-browed Amazon, White-browed Parrot

The White-fronted Parrot, also popularly known as the White-fronted Amazon, is a species of parrot native to parts of Central America and Mexico. At 10 inches in length, they are fairly large for a parrot, though they are the smallest of the Amazons.

White-fronted Amazons nest in tree cavities. While gregarious, they tend to be quiet and rather inconspicuous in their native range. They are also known as Spectacled Amazon Parrots and they can live to reach up to 50 years of age.
