Amazona ventralis

Island of Hispanolia (Dominican Republic and Haiti)

Also known as the Hispaniolan parrot.

Hispaniolan amazons are medium sized, stocky, green amazons with white foreheads and eye-rings. They have dark ear-coverts, maroon belly patches and pinkish-horn beaks. Primary flight feathers and wing coverts are blue and the tails feathers are green with red at the base.

Found on island of Hispaniola in pine forest, palm groves and upland mountain evergreen forests. Found in pairs and small flocks. They nest in tree cavities and rock cavities and feed on tree seeds, figs, seeds of wild oranges, citrus, maize and bananas.

Length is 9 to 10 inches. Weight is 300-450 grams.
Males are generally larger than females and have larger heads and beaks. Eyes of adults and juveniles are brown. Juveniles have less maroon on the belly and less blur on the crown.

Hispaniolan amazons can probably live up to 50-60 years judging by life span of similar species. Little is known about their life span in captivity.
