Amazona autumnalis

- pictured at birdpark, Heiligenkirchen, North-Rhine-Westfalia -

An Amazon parrot is a large parrot of the genus Amazona native to the New World ranging from South America to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Most amazons are predominantly green, although the accenting colors can often be quite vivid and vary depend on the species. Amazons, like all parrots, are zygodactyl, having 4 toes on each foot - two front and two back. They feed primarily on nuts and fruits, supplemented by leafy matter.

Yellow-naped ParrotSeveral amazon species are commonly kept as companion animals, including the Yellow-headed Parrot, Yellow-naped Parrot, and Blue-fronted Parrot.

Amazons are usually known for their exceptional vocal abilities, playfulness, and dexterity with their feet. However, some amazons are known to be aggressive and they all require attention when kept as pets. In particular, since Amazons are cavity nesters in the wild, their desire to chew wood is strong, and they need to be provided with destructible toys to satisfy this innate urge

Very sharp image of this portrait, nice colour, great composed.

Nice portrait Heinz, Good colors, details and DOF. Just a smidge of BG noise. Great POV, Well done.

Hi Heinz, lovely shot, I'd run it through NeatImage or similar to get rid of the slight noise. It is beautifully sharp, well exposed, composed and what beautiful colours! Lovely job, TFS :)

Hi Heinz,
Well done on this capture and details. Excellent portrait.
IMO, subject to the left open space on right, a little more room overtop and a little less on the body. Neat image to rid noise in background or use the blur tool.
Excellent work.


Hey Heinz,

Another fabulous shot from you. The background is a bit noisy. Perhaps increasing the clipping parameter on the USM would have helped, or maybe bluring the background by hand may have helped. Well done though, the bird is magnificent.

Hello Heinz

Lovely portrait. Close clear details. Excellent catchlight in the eye. Plumage colour is wonderful. Well done. Thanks.

Hallo Heinz,
das ist ja ein hammerstarkes Portrait einer wunderschönen Amazone.Ich bin begeistert.Vielleicht noch etwas mehr Luft lassen auf der rechten Seite, ist aber nicht so tragisch. Er kann ja noch durchatmen:-))))
Lieben Gruß aus Heppenheim
