It tends to be confused with the Blue-fronted Amazon, but it is not as big as the latter, its bill is not the same color because it is rather light yellow with the tip of the light gray beak and alone the front of his cheeks are yellow. Its iris is orange-yellow and its legs pale gray. The edges of its wings and tail are yellow and green. It has a longer shape than other species of the genus. Moderately-noisy to loud, bold, cautious, but quickly confident with his surroundings. He needs to nibble things and likes to swim. He enjoys flying in an aviary.
