Hello I am new to parrots and bought one of someone today who claimed it was an amazon parrot but now I am looking online it looks to me like a kakariki and I was hoping someone could help and tell me how to tell the difference?

Thanks in advance marie

I agree, a pic would be optimum but Kakkies are smaller and come in a variety of colours ....

this one is quite 'Amazoney' in colour ....

Amazons do vary in size and colours but almost all are basically green and all are bigger than a Kakkie.
