What kind of parrot is this, please?

by David Merrifield

Can anyone help me identify this type of parrot? Green, dark above the beak, green tail. I've spent a couple hours searching about a hundred parrot websites, hundreds of pictures and descriptions, and still haven't found anything that really matches. My Dad, who lives in Guatemala, found this one in a tree in his back garden.

Characteristics seem to be: Almost entirely green with dark/black just above the beak, whitish/beige beak, yellowish underfeathers near the legs, and green tail. Small white circle around the eyes.

The two closest comparisons I've seen are the Yellow-Naped Amazon (has the dark color over the bill, but obviously lacking the yellow nape, or a Mealy Amazon, but lacking the larger white circle around the eyes and two-tone green and yellow tail.

It didn't *seem* terribly exotic on first viewing, but I haven't found a species that quite matches it. Anyone?

What type am I?

Her name is Holly

Her name is Holly

I recently adopted a parrot but they didn't know the type. They thought it was 8 or 9 years old. It was an adoption from a small zoo that closed but papers were lost and they couldn't find it's records. I was told it was a female.

Hi Folks,

Could anyone tell me the exact species this bird is. He was a gift to me and the people did not know exactly which species he is. Any help would be appreciated.
