A typically vibrant parrot, the yellow-shouldered parrot has brilliant green plumage. Yellow shouldered Amazon is a green parrot with a yellow forehead and shoulders, and with yellow, green, red, and blue feathers under the wings. The bare eye-ring is white. The thighs and the bend of the wing ("shoulder") are yellow, but both can be difficult to see. The throat, cheeks and belly often have a bluish tinge.
Almost 14 inches in length and lifespan is generally 40-80 years, although little is known about lifespan in captivity and varies considerably according to species of Amazons.
