As one of the least studied parrots in the Caribbean, only sparse information is available on the natural history of the St Vincent Amazon (3). A gregarious, canopy feeding bird, it forages in flocks, and consumes a wide variety of seeds, fruits, flowers and leaves, with activity peaking around dawn and dusk (2) (3) (5). Although flocks comprising 20 to 30 birds are encountered fairly frequently, distinct pairs are often discernible (3). During the breeding season, which begins around February, loose nesting assemblages are typically formed by around 12 birds, with each pair building a nest in the cavity of a mature tree (3) (5). The normal clutch size is two, with most eggs being laid around April and May (2) (3). After hatching, the female is known to deposit the eggs-shells some distance away from the nest site, probably as a decoy to potential predators (3).
