About the Mealy Parrot

Also known as: Mealy Amazon, Blue-crowned Amazon, Blue-crowned Parrot

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.

From IUCN Red List:
The Mealy Parrot is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2014 by BirdLife International. Based on a model of future deforestation in the Amazon basin, and the susceptibility of this newly split to hunting and trapping, it is suspected that its population will undergo a moderately rapid decline over three generations from 2002, and it is therefore listed as Near Threatened.
