Yet another image from my latest Amazon parrot model set...
The Imperial Amazon parrot is endemic to only in a very small area of northern Dominica (Lesser Antilles). It is found in the mountain valleys, chiefly in Morne Diablotin area, but also in Northern and Central Forest Reserves, and has been recently re-established a small population in Morne Trois Pitons National Park. It is a reclusive montane species, living primarily at elevations from 600 to 1300 m.
This species is critically endangered with 40-60 mature adults left in the wild. Its main threats include habitat loss, illegal trapping for the cage-bird trade, and occasional hurricane-related damage.
This Amazon is featured on the center of the Commonwealth of Dominica’s flag and coat of arms.
