I'd say Red-crowned Parrot. I was looking at Parrots in Florida and this was the best match. Most other Parrots and Parakeets in Florida had a long tail, which this bird does not. This also has the small bit of red on the wing. Some of the weird coloring is just the lighting, like how some of the bird looks blue on the back and neck in the shade. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/344456161 Here is a photo from Florida that someone else took. Nice Find!

I’m not sure we can rule out lilac crowned from this photo. Any other images?

Yeah @IKLland is right. I am not a parrot expert, I literally just looked up the ebird illiusrated checklist and looked at the parrot photos on there. I just looked at a sibley guide. Other photos would be really helpful.
