You probably already know how much I like parrots. The Abaco Parrot is a subspecies (ssp. bahamensis) of the Cuban Amazon Parrot (Amazona leucocephala), which in itself is Near Threatened according to the IUCN.
There are two extant populations of this subspecies: one on the Abaco islands and one on Great Inagua.
The Abaco Parrot is one of the only ground-nesting parrot species in the world (in fact, the only others I know of are the New Zealish* Kākāpō and Kea, on the brink of extinction and Threatened, respectively).
The best resource for learning more about these beautiful birds is at Rolling Harbour (a WordPress site about the Abaco Islands), which has detailed information about the ecology and physiology of these parrots, their habits, and the research program searching for ways to protect them. This post even has sound clips of their raucous calls and a video of their behaviour. And you can see adorable babies here. (Even a nod to taxonomy here!)
But my favourite Abaco Parrot post is this one.
