Green brown headed bird

I woke up this morning and found this bird lifeless in my backyard.

Since it had already died I couldn't help. Still I'd like to identify it.
It had a greenish parrot like body with a furry brown head with white patches and a red beak. I'm attaching a photograph for assistance in identification. Thank you
