Amazon Parrots from Puerto Rico

Puerto Rican
Amazon Parrot

The Puerto Rican Amazon is one of the rarest parrots in the world and the only parrot found within the U.S. and its territories.  Found only within the El Yunque Rainforest, the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program is devoted to bringing these crown jewels of Puerto Rico back from the brink of extinction.
