Yellow-lored Parrot is endemic to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, including Cozumel Island, and in the northern part of Belize. It also possibly is found on, or formerly occurred on Roatán Island, Honduras; a specimen was collected there in 1947 (Monroe 1968), but there are no subsequent records (Howell and Webb 1992). Escaped captive birds or their descendants have been reported in parts of Florida. Yellow-lored Parrot is resident, and has been considered as uncommon to common. The size of the geographic distribution of Yellow-lored Parrot is estimated as approximately 130,000 km2 (BirdLife International 2014).
