Yellow-crowned Amazon
Amazona ochrocephala

Native Range: Latin America

Notes: the taxonomy of this species and its close relatives is complex and confusing, with several similar forms being of rather questionable species-level distinctiveness; many of these forms hybridize readily in captivity; like other parrots, nests in tree hollows; no sexual dimorphism.
