Amazona aestiva

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

The Blue-fronted Amazon (Amazona aestiva), also called the Turquoise-fronted Amazon and Blue-fronted Parrot, is a species of a parrot and one of the most common parrots kept in captivity as a pet. Its name derives from the distinctive blue marking over its beak. The range of the Blue-fronted Amazon extends over Bolivia, Brazil, Paraguay and northern Argentina. Their talking ability is ranked third among birds when compared to African Grey Parrots or Yellow-naped Parrots. Males tend to be slightly more aggressive.

Nice colourful bird technically perfect. It would come out better infront of a less varied BG, which I find distracting.
As is, well done, the detail and colours of the eye are amazing.

Excellent capture Heinz,
Good detail and colours. Great POV and sharpness.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Have a good week.

It looks a lot like our Parrot species in SA. The colors and details are good. Very well done.

Hello Heinz,
Very nice portrait of this beautiful and intelligent bird.
Best greetings,

Nice profile capture Heinz. Very good sharpness, detail and well composed. Well done!

Bonjour Heinz,
Superbe portrait de cet amazone à front bleu. C'est un oiseau extraordinaire qui parle très bien et est très affectueux. J'en ai perdu un qui avait une quinzaine d'année et je le regrette encore souvent. Cordialement. Gérard
