Mealy Amazon
Amazona farinosa

Native Range: Latin America

Notes: a large amazon parrot that gets its name from a "mealy" or meal-like tinge due to whitish powdery feathers on its head and neck; similar in overall appearance to South America's Yellow-crowned Amazon but larger in size and lacks yellow on the crown.
