This bird is about 23 cm long. Its big head presents a black cap that descends below the eyes, which is why it is also called, the black-headed parrot. The cheeks and neck are golden yellow and it has a whitish belly.They are fairly common in their natural range, which is in the Amazon forest in South America.
