Black-billed Amazon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

[Photo] Black-billed Amazon (Amazona agilis). BARRABAND, Jacques (1767/8-1809) [Le Petit perroquet vert (Black-billed Amazon [Amazona agilis])]. From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (by Fran??ois Levaillant, 1801-1805). Image from http://search.abaa.org/dbp2/book1700_08802.html

The Black-billed Amazon, Amazona agilis, is a parrot endemic to Jamaica. Sometimes called the Black-billed Parrot, this Amazon parrot is mostly green with small patches of red on the wing and sometimes flecked on the head. Its bill makes it easy to separate from most other Amazons, including the Yellow-billed Amazon, which also lives in Jamaica.

The Black-billed Amazon lives in mountainous rainforest, usually limestone rainforest, feeding on fruit, seeds, and nuts, and will take cultivated fruit like mangos, papayas and cucumbers as well as wild fruits.

The Black-billed Amazon was once as common as the Yellow-billed Amazon, but has become much rarer due to deforestation and hurricane damage fragmenting its forest, poaching for food and the pet trade in wild parrots.
