"Bahama" Cuban Parrot

Bahama Palm Shores / Abaco Island, The Bahamas

 

The Bahama Amazon or Rose-throated Parrot is the only parrot found in the Bahamas and only on Abaco Island. It is a threatened Caribbean endemic, locally common in Cuba; fairly common on Great Inagua; fairly common on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. This is another life bird for me.
