Mealy Amazon

Amazona farinosa

The Mealy Amazon lives in forests and plantations of tropical Central and South America. This bird is highly social. It is usually found in pairs or flocks. The name "Mealy Amazon" comes from the fact that the feathers of this amazon look as if dusted with flour, or meal.

The above picture was taken at the Attica Zoological Park, in July 2009.
