In California: One of the smallest of the Amazons, this little guy has no clue how small he really is. Often seen among the 'bigger and bolder' he holds his own. As elusive as the Yellow-head and Blue-front, these little guys are hard to spot and equally difficult to photograph.

Horizontal Rule
NOTE: Among the amazona flocks, hybrids of all species can be found. Some of our photographs may contain hybrids -- these birds are included in the species gallery they most closely resemble. Those who evenly resemble two or more species or cannot be specifically identified will be found in the "Others" Gallery.
