Description


This endangered Amazon parrot is endemic to northeastern Mexico. The native range currently comprises approximately 50,000 km2, mainly in eastern Nuevo León, southern Tamaulipas, eastern San Luis Potosí, and northeastern Veracruz, Mexico. The typical habitat in northeastern Mexico is diverse sub-deciduous tropical forest characteristic of northern limit of Veracruzan Biotic Province. There are between 2,000-4,300 mature adults left in its native range with a decreasing population trend. The species has undergone a large, significant decline between 1970 and 2017. Declines are thought to continue due to the impacts of trapping pressure and habitat loss, but current rates are unknown. On the plus side, this species has several "feral" populations in southern California, Texas, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Florida, with the California population being the largest. As of 1995, the southern California population estimated at 750-1,000 individuals. I'll added here, that I see 25-50 daily fly my house-- its hard to miss their gregarious squawking. Foraging appears to be opportunistic. Fruits of dominant tree species, particularly ebony, strangler fig, coma, and anacua (Ehretia anacua) seemed to provide majority of diet. In the Los Angeles area, they seem to be drawn to Acacia seeds.

Go on with your information and superb birds! These parrots, like many other birds, are more happy living free than in a cage !

So sad another of the beautiful animals on earth will disappear because humans don't care about their environment.
