The Yellow-headed Amazon is an endangered that is native to Mexico and northern Central America. Known also as the Double Yellow-headed Amazon, this parrot is distinguished by its striking yellow nape and crown, which stand out against its primarily green plumage.
Since the 1970s, the Yellow-headed Amazon has faced significant population declines due to extensive capture for the pet trade, coupled with habitat destruction in its natural range. In the wild, these parrots live in flocks and are often seen engaging in lively social interactions, which include vocalizations and mutual preening.
Conservation efforts are critical for the Yellow-headed Amazon, focusing on habitat preservation and enforcing regulations against illegal trade.
