The double yellow-headed amazon (Amazona oratrix) also known as the yellow-headed parrot and yellow-headed amazon, is an endangered amazon parrot of Mexico and northern Central America. In the 1940s in Veracruz, flocks from a few birds to one hundred or more flew from their feeding grounds in the forest to their roosting sites on the coastal plain. For an hour before dusk varying numbers were always in view. Large flocks are now a thing of the past. It inhabits dense riverine woodland and cultivated areas with trees and remnant forest patches, thorn scrub and forests.
