Fun Facts about Parrots

Fun Facts about Parrots

Fun Facts about Parrots

Parrots are some of the most fascinating creatures on earth. They thrive in the wild—living in forests and jungles– but can also adapt beautifully to life in captivity where they bond with their human owners. To help you get better acquainted with these amazing creatures, here are a few fun parrot facts:

•    There are 350 parrot species in the world. These birds come in almost every color, size and shape imaginable. Some are docile and mild-mannered; others are outgoing and aggressive.

•    Parrots have zygodactylous feet. This means they have 4 toes—two on the front and two on the back of each foot. This helps them grip tree limbs or their bird perch with ease.

•    Parrots come in a variety of sizes—some are as small as 3.6 inches in length—others are 40 inches long.

•    Some large breeds can live 50 or more years. Amazon parrots can live up to 80 years old. If you do purchase a breed that has the potential to live 50 or more years, you will need to make sure someone is willing to take care of your feathered friend once you pass on.

•    The tongue of a lorikeet looks like a brush. This enables them to eat nectar.

•    Parrots are among the top ten most intelligent species. That’s right—these clever creatures have learned how to read, talk, count and recognize various shapes. To stimulate your parrot’s inner genius, purchase plenty of colorful bird toys, talk to your parrot regularly and teach him tricks.

•    You can tell how old a macaw parrot is by looking at his eyes. Younger birds have black eyes, while older macaws have yellow eyes.

•    Wild cockatoos and macaws fly long distances in search for food—up to 500 miles per day. These birds have lots of stamina.

•    Some parrots are so loud, they can be heard for up to a mile. So be careful which breed you choose!! You wouldn’t want to deafen your neighbors or yourself!!
