In many regions the Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot is the most abundant Amazona species, and often one of the more numerous parrots. It is the best-known of the Amazons, being very popular as a pet in its homeland and in many countries of the world. It has a good reputation as a "talker." Though still common over much of its range, some local declines have been brought about by deforestation and capture for the pet trade. It seems capable of withstanding considerable habitat disturbance, provided that relatively large and secluded trees are available for nesting and roosting. Pairs or small flocks of these birds spend most of the day feeding and resting in the crown of trees, where their plumage blends extremely well with the foliage, so the only indication of their presence may be falling debris or pieces of fruit. While feeding they are tame and will generally allow a close approach, but if the disturbance persists, they will fly off in pairs, screeching loudly as they go. In flight they are very conspicuous, due to their constant screeching. From a distance the loud calls given in flight resemble cries of 'help...help.'
Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot nests are in hollow in trees, or less frequently in holes in cliff-faces. Several pairs may nest close together. Eggs are laid about the end of the first week in April, and the first young fledged about the middle of July.
Fruits, berries, seeds, nuts, blossoms and leaf buds. At times they attack crops, causing considerable damage.
