The White-crowned Parrot is a small, chunky parrot found from northeastern Mexico south to western Panama. Though the species feeds in groups of several dozen at a time, the birds are not excessively vocal, nor do they expose themselves often, tending to stay inside the canopy; therefore, while fairly common, they easily evade detection. The White-crowned Parrot has a blue head and chest with prominent white crown and throat, green belly, and breen back. Males are brighter than females, though both sexes are similarly patterned in general. White-crowned Parrots tend to eat fruits and nuts in the forest, but they have been known to raid agricultural areas for fruits and grains.
