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.
Details & Statistics
The White-fronted Parrot is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2012 by BirdLife International. This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be increasing, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size is very large, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
