The red head may indicate a Mexican Redhead Amazon, though some of the conures also have the red on head. The Mexican Redhead Amazon is about 13 1/2" head to tip of tail if that helps. Conures are smaller than that, and come in a variety of colors though the bodies are usually a basic green. The Cherry Headed Conure has a red head. The Amazon family also have green bodies with a little color in wings. They also have different colors on head, lores, necks and shoulders. Yours has a red head, so he is either a Mexican Red Head Amazon or a Cherry Head Conure, but am not 100% certain of that.

If you could post a picture, that would help a great deal.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
