Yellow-Naped Parrot

Hey pretty bird! While this particular bird probably isn’t too interested in getting a cracker, it does get today’s image of the day. Let us introduce you to the Amazona Auropalliata, also known as a yellow-naped Amazon or yellow-naped parrot. These birds are traditionally found in Mexico and Central America. They are known for having playful personalities and for being quite talkative. This, along with habitat loss, may be why these beautiful birds have found themselves on the endangered species list.
