The yellow-naped amazon parrot gets its name from the yellow feathering on its neck, and commonly its forehead. Its yellow feathers begin to appear as they reach maturity. They are known to be very loud and their call mimics the sound “kurr-owk.” Shrieks and whistles are very common sounds produced by the parrot and this species can be extremely loud in captivity. In their native habitat, these birds face problems of deforestation and their popularity in the pet trade.
