Another card from the Caribbean! It's the national bird of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the so-called Saint Vincent amazon or Saint Vincent parrot, Amazona guildingii.

On the left, you can see an American Shorthair cat and on the right an American purple gallinule. They lay give to ten of those eggs. And they sometimes eat eggs and young of other birds. Scandalous!
