Amazons

Printer-friendly version

There are about 60 types of Amazon. There are also some very attractive hybrids and different subspecific varieties within the group.

In captivity one often sees the blue fronted and the orange winged or red-lored, though many other types are popular as pets. Amazons are basically mottled green in colour and have short stumpy tails and a robust body. Pionus parrots are related to the Amazons.
