Red-crowned Parrot is an endangered species of the genus Amazona that is endemic to the lowlands of northeastern Mexico. They are green overall with a red forecrown and a blue streak behind the eye, red secondaries, and blue primaries. While it has a limited natural range, introduced populations exist in several locations in the United States including Florida, California, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii; it is unclear if birds in southern Texas are of wild or introduced origin. The species is endangered because of a combination of habitat loss and trapping for the pet trade. Like other parrots of this genus, Red-crowned Parrots feed primarily on seeds, nuts, and fruit, and nest in tree cavities.
