Blue-fronted Amazons (Amazona aestiva) are dispersed throughout Amazonia of South America. They frequently occur in major regions of northeastern Brazil, forests of Bolivia, Paraguay, and northern Argentina. Blue-fronted Amazons are no longer found in some areas of southern Argentina. Their populations have diminished recently due to deforestation, and frequent capture for the pet trade.
