Mr Black, good afternoon:
It is not...I am not an expert in anything at all, but have read for
years in a number of scientific journals that the parrot I am speaking
of is indeed indigenous _only to the Bay Islands_, along with a Bay
Island vole, and a very rare iguana...I would suggest that Sven furnish
you the species name...but for certain it is NOT just a sub-species of
the common "Yellow Napped Amazon parrot"...this I am comfortable with.
Sven....please step in here please and give this gentleman the species
of the Bay Island Parrot...Mr. Black is an expert on parrots and I
certainly am not.
All the best...dke
