Range Description

Amazona dufresniana occurs in south-east Venezuela (Bolvar, with an isolated record in Amazonas), north Guyana (north of 5N), north-east Suriname and north-east French Guiana (Wege and Collar 1991). There are reports from Par and Amap, Brazil, where its occurrence seems probable, but no conclusive records (Wege and Collar 1991, Collar 1995). The scarcity of records from frequently surveyed areas suggests that this is a low density and rather uncommon species, at least in some parts of its range (Wege and Collar 1991). In Guyana, "healthy populations" are known from the Aruka area in north-west Guyana between the Aruka and Amakuru rivers, Kaieteur National Park and the Kuribrong river, and the Iwokrama Forest Reserve (A. Narine in litt. 2010)
