Description:     This species is one of my favorites, Mike Richard, owner Royal Bird Company

 An often erroneous mislabeled bird is the Blue front Amazon, Some misinformed dealers and many breeders still to this day try to fix labels such as "Chaco" Blue front. What does this mean?  There is no such species "Chaco" Blue Front Amazon Parrot. There is a region in Argentina South America named Chaco Province. This was once the main export of many South American birds including the colorful Blue Fronted subspecies Yellow Wing (amazona aestiva xanthopteryx) of the True Blue Front Amazon (aestiva aestiva) origin Brazil. The birds trapped in the Chaco regions were colorful with yellow and red in the wings (shoulders). True Blue Fronted amazons does not have extended yellow color on the wings. Brazil never legally allowed many exports of any fauna or flora. Therefore most people today would never see the real true Blue Fronted Amazons.  Most "Blue Fronts" today in the USA are the so called "Chaco" if you do have to label them. Keeping in mind that you would have to know the origins of a given bird in order for any of these names to have any validity. So most of these slang names are passed around without one really understanding that they are not speaking of a real species, its mostly describing where the birds originated from many years ago. But keep in mind that most breeders and owners do not even have a clue..They think they have "Chaco Blue Fronts??"

Basically green in color. The bend of the wing may vary from reddish yellow to red at the bend of the wing. The yellow winged sub species being mostly yellow with little red. The feathers on the nape have dark borders giving the scalloped effect. The beak is dark, nearly black. The head is a variable mixture blue and yellow with a definite blue forehead. The cheeks and crown are yellow. The red in the flights is rather extensive. This species is one of the best talking species of amazons. Although some may not think that this species is as talented as the Yellow Naped Amazon, we have seen some that were actually better, It mostly depends on the training. Blue Fronted Amazons seem to be active and out going and many people relate this to aggressive behavior, nothing could be farther from the truth. They are curious and mischievous.

Blue Fronted Amazons are one of three most popular species of amazon parrots.
