Monday Mystery Answered

BOTWI Screen Shot 2019-08-27 at 3.26.20 PMOn Monday I asked,

This is one of the most collectible editions of Birds of the West Indies because it was featured in the  2002 007 movie, Die Another Day.

Pierce Brosnan's James Bond poses as an ornithologist, carrying this book (with Bond's name crossed out).

The question is: What bird is on the cover?

The answer:

Black-billed Parrot. The cover illustration is a cropped, flopped, stylized adaptation from this Don Eckelberry illustration from Birds of the West Indies, below.
