Tres Maria Amazon

The Tres Marias Amazon is a subspecies of the Double Yellow-Headed Amazon. Its original habitat was three islands off the western coast of Mexico called the Tres Marias Islands. This subspecie is quite rare in aviculture and is often confused
with the Magna Double Yellow-Headed Amazon.
Shown are two birds about six months of age. The bird on the left is a Tres Marias Amazon (Amazona oratrix tresmarie).
The bird on the right is a Magna Double Yellow-Headed Amazon (Amazona oratrix).
