Three of the numerous Yellow-crowned Parrots can be clearly distinguished by their extensive yellow crowns in the upper left section of the group of birds. One of these is biting off a chunk of clay. The Blue-headed Parrots, of course, have blue heads. Two Mealy Parrots (larger than Yellow-crowned Parrots) in the upper center of the image stand out because of their whitish backs. A group of Dusky-headed Parakeets is seen in the lower left corner of the image. The Yellow-crowned Parrot and Mealy Parrot are also called Yellow-crowned Amazon and Mealy Amazon, respectively.
