Description


These Amazons are from my second part of Amazon Parrot project I'm working on (Parrots v5 and v6: Amazons of the World) The Cuban Parrot is not actually endemic to Cuba. Rather, the four recognized subspecies, some of which are sometimes raised to species status (although such proposals have yet to acquire much critical support), range over Great Inagua, Abaco and formerly other islands in the Bahamas, all three of the Cayman Islands, as well as the main island of Cuba and its most important satellite, the Isle of Youth. Those populations away from Cuba are unquestionably rather small, but probably no longer declining due to more effective conservation measures than have to date been possible in Cuba. It habitat includes limestone forests, dry mixed broadleaf woodlands, savanna with stands of pine and palms, mangroves, plantations and gardens. It is a "Near Threatened" species parrot with 2,000-4,300 mature adults remaining and a decreasing population trend. Originally, it much more numerous throughout; but now extirpated from parts of former range due to habitat loss and capture for bird trade. In Cuba, The nominate race has undergone widespread population decline, but still locally common in remoter forested areas of the island; found at very low density in central Cuba. Cuban population estimated at 5,000 in 1988; now stable and even increasing on the Isle of Pines (to 1,384 in December 1995). It is threatened by domestic cat predation, pet trade poaching and habitat loss.

Very beautiful. The colour of the birds harmonizes perfect with the background.
