These intelligent birds inhabit tropical and subtropical areas. There are over 350 species of parrots that live in flocks in the wild and communicate with loud screeching sounds. 

How much do we actually know about these fascinating creatures?

I have always want to teach a parrot to say some cool stuff i think it would be cool to have one
Amanda Grace
Me too. I think that it would be so cool to hear a bird talking and saying all of the things that these birds can say.

I love my parrots! They make my world complete, for sure.I have two and have had them for a good while now. I think 2 is enough

Alex Du Coeur
I used to have parrots but i dont anymore my auntie let them free on purpose i dislike her for that
Lisa Perkins
I think my cockatoo and African grey like my kitty's bed better than my kitty's do! lol These guy's are crazy and so much fun to watch.

Michelle Parks Hargro
so cute! I love my birdies. lol They are very amusing to me and I see how bonded they get to owners.I willed them to my son. He visits and gives them love.
Lisa Perkins
I have had my parrots for twenty years. I'm sure that they will out live me. I just worry about who will take care of them if something does happen to me, because they get really attached to their owner's.

I have five parrots, three African Grey's and two cockatoo's and they are worse than children! It seems as though they scream all day.

I always thought these birds were dirty and annoying when I would see them in pet shops, but when we went to the Bahamas and saw them there, they were beautiful.

my sister in law used to ha ve a parrot. she taught the bird how to say a couple of words. he used to like talking like the door bell.
Mary Kirkland
I knew someone who had a parrot and they are so loud and if they haven't been socialized well, they can be mean as heck.
Candina Szabo

Andrea Garofolo
i have a male eclectus i adopted from a home whom did not take care of him,so it has been up to me to get him healthy which is a hard task and cost lots of money.he may be the ugliest,cutest bird i ever owned.he is smart and funny and talks constant and reacts and answers when i talk to him.he is sometimes like having a toddler around he is sneaky and loves to steal food on the table.but i find everything he does so funny he just lights up my day
Lisa Perkins
That is a wonderful thing that you have done. I can't stand to see any animal not being taken care of very well. I have had five parrots for the last twenty years and they are very much like toddler's. A lot of responsibility! But well worth it.
Andrea Garofolo
it also helps when save money when you put yourself on the birds same diet.he is loving the nice weather and coming outside with me to sit in the sun.it is very good for him to get sun just like a person.he is so emotional and know when i am upset and lets out this quiet li awww noise and rubs his beak up and down my cheek.it is amazing how sensitive he is to my feeling i would have never imagined a bird can do that.he has become my best friend and atleast now i can"t get accused of talking to myself i just say i am talking to the bird ,how else will he learn,lol

I have a Red winged macaw named Ruby. She is a rescue bird.She is 19 years old. She has a problem with feather plucking. Does anyone else's bird share that problem?
Andrea Garofolo
palm oil works great for alot of things,google it,it is great
Theresa Dreyer
Isn't that funny I just ordered some yesterday from Bird Paradise!! I also purchased something called Avitech Feather-In!! I sure hope it works!!!

Parrots are just such handsome birds. When I was a child, I had to Blue Front Amazons. They were so beautiful and they had such interesting personalities.
ChrisTina Shaskus
I have always wanted an African Gray.. but considering all the cats I have.. it is probably best I not get one.. and considering their longevity.. maybe next life.. lol
Sherin Hylan
I had an African Grey a certain ex-boyfriend bought me after a break up. Sadly the poor baby only lasted about two months. He had something wrong with his liver.
Gail Russo
About a month ago, I rescued a Sun Conure. I don't know anything about his/her past because the owner passed away. I've got all sorts of questions and would love to chat with anyone who has knowledge of these birds
Theresa Dreyer
There is a website that I go to when I need advice. It is 3 feathered friend.net
Tina Counterman
I have 2 blue and gold parrots and they bond with certain ppl. My female I cant touch at all cause she loves my boyfriend and tries to chase me away when I get to close. Elize as for your african grey I think he/she might need more toys to play with to keep him/her occupied, Sometimes they stress out if they cannot be a part of the family, try moving him to where he/she can watch tv with you, try giving him more attention, I think that might help with your problem hopefully
Elize Botha
can somebody help please my African grey is now 6 years old and all the time plugging his feathers, ang getting aggressive as well.
Sherin Hylan
When my Blue Front started plucking his feathers, my vet told me he needed a mate most likely. So, I got him one. He actually stopped plucking his feathers. Have you spoken to your vet?
Theresa Dreyer
I am starting to used a hemp rope for her to pick on. You can buy them online. I use Bird Paradise! I have a rescued Red winged macaw with the same problem!!
Chris Smit
hi. i adopted a mini macaw. is about a year old it screa.s constantly. and i am not allowed to touch him . please help
Sherin Hylan
Perhaps he wasn't properly socialized, and he will need some time. How are things going now?
Theresa Dreyer
My bird nanny taught me this one! Talk to your bird in a normal voice,then a deep loud voice (THE same words) then say the same words only this time whisper Then tell the word whisper as you do it. It will take some time but my red winged macaw does this when she gets loud!! Also with not handling him go to You tube under bird tricks.com
