The Mealy Parrots can be distinguished by their whitish backs and large size. The Blue-headed Parrots are much smaller and have blue heads. Two groups of Dusky-headed Parakeets can be seen, one at the bottom of the image and the other, forming a rough horizontal row, at the upper left. The Dusky-headed Parakeets are the smallest birds in this photo and have tapered, pointed tails. Some Mealy Parrots and Blue-headed Parrots have just taken flight. The Mealy Parrot is also known as the Mealy Amazon.
