*most amazon parrots are predominantly green, with accenting colors that depend on the species and can be quite vivid. they feed primarily on seeds, nuts, and fruits, supplemented by leafy matter.

 

many amazon parrots have a remarkable ability to mimic human speech and other sounds. partly because of this they are popular as pets or companion parrots, and a small industry has developed in breeding parrots in captivity for this market. this popularity has led to many parrots being taken from the wild to the extent that some species have become threatened. CITES treaties have made trapping wild parrots for the pet trade illegal to protect wild populations.
