Dr. Laurie Hess: So, parrots are from the family Psittacines mostly. Psittacinae parrots are familiar to us. They come in all shapes and sizes, down from the little, teeny parakeets that we know as parakeets that are really budgerigars, very common, to cockatiels, slightly larger, Quaker parrots, the one you know as Paulie from the movies, the monk parakeets that fly around actually outside and have lived very successfully outside even in the northeast, to some larger species. There are Pionus parrots who are medium-sized species. Kyeks. Then we get into some of the bigger species. Cockatoos, the white ones that you see so commonly. They’re so mushy. African Greys. Great talkers. Amazon parrots. The big, green pirate ship kind of bird that you see all over the place. There are many different kinds of Amazon parrots, too. And then the bigger macaws. So, parrots encompass quite a few different species and what’s fun is that we get to see all of them at work, don’t we?
Sarah: Absolutely. And it’s really nice. There’s such a large variety to choose from and, you know, that’s why I think people should really research what they’re looking for in a bird. So many of them have such specific things to offer to a family that I think it’s a really great idea to not just go and see, you know, the four common birds that you might see in a pet store. There might be something much more exotic or a different kind of personality that you would be interested in that people should really look into it and do a lot of research.
Dr. Laurie Hess: I think you hit the nail on the head. Personality. Absolutely. Different bird species have different personalities. And it’s really important to match your personality with your bird’s personality. So, if you are considering getting a parrot, a generic parrot, I would go to a place where you can watch them, you can interact with them, maybe you can touch them. Ask questions. Read about them. Get to know what your parrot is going to be like at home. Obviously, every bird is different, but different species have different reputations and you really want to get something that’s suited to you and your lifestyle.
LEARN HOW TO DRAW A PARROT STEP BY STEP
If a bright green colored Parrot is something you are familiar with then you will be amazed that there are around 372 types of Parrots around the world. All of them are brightly colored but not specifically green all the time. Today, let’s start by drawing the common type of parrot. Get ready with your paper/pencil/paintbrush/pen and get started to be an artist.
Step 1: Start with the body in oval shape with an inward curve at one end for neck.
Step 2: Complete the head of the Parrot and draw an eye just like the human eye.
Step 3: Draw wings and complete the body.
Step 4: Make the tail of feathers at the rear end.
Step 5: Draw a curved beak that is very typical of Parrots.
Step 6: Draw one leg with long nails and three fingers.
Step 7: Draw another leg similar to the first alongside the first leg.
Step 8: Color your parrot bright green with hints of orange here and there.
Wasn’t it easy to draw these birds that are considered to be the most intelligent birds on earth. If you wish to draw other objects as well you can click on the videos and step by step lessons and be an artist well appreciated.
Seeds are the best food for Parrots however, they can eat fruits, flowers, nectar and small insects as well. Parrots have a knack to imitate the human voice and are therefore much loved by human beings. The most interesting part of Parrots is that they can bring their food to their mouth while eating, something that only they can do.
Parrots are colorful, lively and playful pets. There are more than 350 different types of parrots; they range in color from vibrant red and green to stately gray and black, and can be quite small (about 3 inches or almost 8 centimeters) or quite large (up to 40 inches or more than 100 centimeters). When given plenty of living space, exercise and positive attention, these extremely intelligent birds are very affectionate toward their owners. Most parrots have an uncanny ability to mimic human voices, as well as other sounds. Don’t be surprised if your parrot begins to imitate a barking dog, a mewing cat or even your cell phone’s distinctive ring.
