Martinique Amazon

The Martinique Amazon, Amazona martinicana, was a species of parrot in the Psittacidae family. It was endemic to Martinique. It became extinct due to habitat loss as Martinique was cleared for agriculture. It has not been recorded since 1722. A similar, also extinct parrot inhabited the island of Guadeloupe and may have been the same species.
