Hybrid Parrot – Luke Tiller

I digiscoped this distant Amazon Parrot on a PAS walk in San Gabriel this morning. Apparently a Red-lored x Red-crowned Parrot though I’m open to other interpretations.

There’s some video of this bird on my Youtube page (here).

Edit: Feedback from Occidental College who are doing some research on parrots in Los Angeles suggests that this may be a pure Red-crowned Parrot with abnormal yellow in the face, but that without genetic information this is just guess work.
