Some interesting facts about parrots are:
Did you know that the African Grey Parrot is the most intelligent animal in the world? It is considered that it truly understands some of what it says, leading some people to believe they have the mentality of a three year old human child. ‘A naughty toddler‘ some would say!!
Did you know that a Budgie named ‘Sparkie’ is mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records. ‘Sparkie’ had a vocabulary of more than 530 words and was able to ‘string together’ more than 380 sentences. Budgies are believed to be the ‘most common ‘Pet Parrot’ in the world today.
Cockatiels are sometimes called Weero or Quarrion or Crested Parakeets. Some interesting facts about the cockatiel are that they like to ‘watch something’ (like TV), or ‘listen to Kva-Kva music. ‘ Cockatiels can see colours and like to play with movable objects. The cockatiel enjoys ‘being misted’ with warm water.
Green-winged Macaws are the second largest parrot in the world. The beautifully coloured Hyacinth Macaw is the largest. Their amazing beaks are designed to crack open Brazil nuts and are strong enough to crack a broomstick in half.
The yellow fronted and blue fronted Amazon species of parrot has been popular for several hundred years as a pet. These birds, though not as clever as the Grey, are very good at mimicking human speech and are known to be quite noisy. They are loud at ‘jungle noises!!‘ Amazons, like most parrots, use their feet as hands. Amazons are monogamous, choosing a partner for life.
The eclectus parrot, like all parrots, eats fruits, seeds, and nuts but there favourite fruit is the pomegranate. The pomegranate is an almost peach-looking fruit that is filled with seeds held together by a fleshy white meat. As both sexes are totally different in colour (sexually dimorphic) it was thought, for a long time, that they were two different species; until Dr. A. B. Meiljer (National Museum of Natural History) discovered in 1874, that the males are green and the females are red.
Interesting facts about Cockatoos include that their life span is long! They can live to be 100 years old.
They require freedom. So if you cage the cockatoo for long time, it will become sick and crazy. The Cockatoo requires lots of love, attention and care.
Cockatoos will give more importance to the emotional bonding. It is a good friend of its human kin. If it is detached from the bonded ‘Owner’ (or the ‘significant other bird’ that it has bonded to) it can become sick very quickly. This can prove fatal. Cockatoos are fond of interacting and playing with people and can also form strong bonds with other birds. So be sure to make ‘quality one-to-one time’ to spend with them.
Lovebirds are not called lovebirds because of their need for an avian companion, but because of their habit of huddling closely together. In fact, lovebirds kept in pairs can be quite intractable and difficult to tame. Therefore single lovebirds, but only when taken from the nest as babies and hand-fed, make the best pets.
Not only does the Eastern Rosella nest in trees or stumps but it also nests in fence posts. The Eastern Rosella is also called a Rosehill Parakeet, or Rosy. It will be found in pairs or flocks in scrub, savannah, woods and even farmland, where it seeks seeds, fruit, berries, nectar, blossoms and insects.
Alexandrine Parakeet is the largest of the Parakeet species, sometimes reaching over two feet in length. Their tails can sometimes be up to a foot and a half long!
