Blue-fronted amazons are a species of mostly green parrot native to South America. They are recognisable by the blue patch above their beak, and yellow patch behind that, which both vary in size between individuals. They have some yellow feathers in their wings, and some have a few red feathers at the shoulder. They are social and have been shown to have several specific vocalisations for different situations such as while flying or in the breeding season. Birds in a pair will also use tactile communication, preening each other or touching beaks.
