Parrots (Lora) on Bonaire: Colorful Residents of the Caribbean Island.

Bonaire is known for its native bird species, including the colorful and charming parrots known as Loras. The Lora, scientifically known as Amazona barbadensis, is a species of parrot found in the Caribbean Islands region. They are known for their bright green plumage, with distinctive red spots on their face and wings. They have a long, sharp beak that allows them to easily make their way into the juicy pulp of the cacti that are common in Bonaire’s arid landscape. The cacti are an important food source, but they also feed on fruits, seeds and nuts that grow in the wild.
