Vinaceous Amazon

The vinaceous-breasted amazon has become rare. It inhabits several areas within Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay.
Amazon parrots eat a variety of seeds, nuts, fruits, berries, and vegetation in the wild. In captivity, a double yellow-headed needs a high-quality pelleted diet supplemented with seed mix and daily servings of fresh bird-safe fruits and vegetables. A varied diet will help ensure that your bird is getting the balanced nutrition it needs.

The species is currently endangered and is also prevented from nesting due to competition with the African Queen Bees (Apis mellifera scutellata), an invasive species spread throughout South and Central America. The invasive species compete with the endangered species for nesting boxes, mostly cavities in trees, occupying them first or invading the other specie nests.
