Must be Amazona farinosa guatemalae, Blue-crownd Mealy Amazone.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mealy_Amazo...http://avibase.bsc-eoc.org/species.jsp?l...http://birds.audubon.org/birds/mealy-par...http://www.xeno-canto.org/species/Amazon...http://www.xeno-canto.org/species/Amazon...http://www.genusamazona.50megs.com/profi...https://sites.google.com/site/amazonapar...
Did see yellow on the tail of this Mealy. http://birds.audubon.org/birds/mealy-par...
Looks closer to the Mealy but neither species has the yellow tail this one has. The Blue-fronted has yellow on the face and shoulder on the wing. This spotting lacks the yellow in both places.
Thank you Lenny Worthington for the ID.
