Similar in size to the Blue Front Amazon, Bodin’s Amazons have a distinguishing red back and crown, as well as a beautiful blue to violet-blue head. In the midst of the violet-blue are emerald green ear coverts. The beak is black.
Juveniles have a green back, paler overall color with less head coloration, and brown, not orange irises. The young also have the upper third of the outer three tail feathers maroon-red, whereas adults have them entirely green. Young birds get some red on the back at about five to six months of age.
The iris turns pale silvery gray at about the same time. At age of two colors are close to adult coloration except that violet blue on the head is less extensive. My breeding birds get some red feathers on their cheeks, breast, and abdomen during the mating season. My juvenile female from Florida is visibly smaller than my other hens of the same age and has much less blue on the head.
