Wazzup Goldiablo here sharing of what I read about my small little buddy "Parrot". Please if you like it subscribe to my short story, this will help me a lot to get inspired in writing stories.

Actually “Parrot” is well known and now you think of the classic movies that show colorful green bird sits on a pirate’s shoulder.

Parrots are not a single species but an entire order of birds called Psittaciformes includes parrots, amazons, cockatoos, lorikeets, lories, macaws, and parakeets.

There are 372 species of parrot around the globe some are captive and some are wild.

It was spectacular, so here some of the species:

1. Senegal parrot (Poicephalus senegalus)

The Senegal parrot is a breed found in a wide range of west Africa. The fruit, seeds, and blossoms make up its diet. It is considered a farm pest in Africa, often feeding on maize or millet.

2. Orange-bellied parrot (Neophema chrysogaster)

The orange-bellied parrot is endemic to southern Australia, and one of only three species of parrot that migrate. A small parrot around 20 cm long, it exhibits sexual dimorphism.

3. Hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus)

The hyacinth macaw is native to central and eastern South America with a length of about one meter and longer than any other species.

4. Major Mitchell's cockatoo (Lophochroa leadbeateri)

Also known as Leadbeater's cockatoo or the pink cockatoo. A medium-sized cockatoo restricted to inland Australia. Can be seen regularly in South-East Queensland's subtropical region.

5. Pesquet's parrot (Psittrichas fulgidus)

Also known as the Dracula parrot or as the vulturine parrot. This member of the genus belongs to the subfamily Psittrichadinae and endemic to the hill and montane rainforest in New Guinea.

6 Rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri)

The rose-ringed parakeet, also known as the ring-necked parakeet. A medium-sized parrot in the genus Psittacula (palm cockatoo).

7. Papuan lorikeet (Charmosyna papou)

Also known as Stella's lorikeet and Mount-Goliath lorikeet. It is found in New Guinea. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

8. Kakapo (Strigops habroptilus)

Also called owl parrot, is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea. This is endemic to New Zealand and has finely blotched yellow-green plumage. They had a distinct facial disc, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and short wings and tail.

9. Mindanano Racket-tail Parrot (Prioniturus)

The genus "Prioniturus" (saw-tailed tail) has nine parrot species found in the Philippines or Indonesia. Our little buddy belongs to this species:

Racket-tailed parrots are famous from all other parrots by their elongated central tail feathers with the bare shaft and spatula at the end.

The feathers are green with more or less blue or red highlights. Also, the adult parrots size is average 30 cm in length.

Natural diet:

Their natural diet is consists of some fruits that are available in our backyard (such as banana, guavas, corn, rice, and berries), or nuts and seeds. They are also seen feeding in cornfields, where they can cause considerable damage to the crops. Some considered them as pests because of this.

In captivity, they should be provided with various fruits (such as banana, grapes, apple, cactus figs, elder, and rowan berries), but I preferred bananas only since we are abundant in this in our land. Lory food, safflower seed mixes, paddy rice, wheat, hemp, canary grass, various millets, and sunflower seed (also sprouted) can do as well.

You may give also some cooked rice; half-ripened maize; rose hips; and twice-weekly egg food and hard-boiled egg, which is important during the breeding season. For some people, it is an advantage if you have a chicken or duck farm.

Parrots are amazing creatures and also a part of nature. I find parrots really interesting and their ability to mimic speech and speech patterns is amazing. A parrot was even used to solve a crime in my city. I know right so unbelievably. Let's keep our parrots safe #saynotonaturekillers.
