The Many Types of Parrots
Unlike other types of pet birds, parrots have:
- Strong curved bills
- An upright stance
- Clawed feet with two toes pointing forward and two toes pointing backward
- The ability to learn to mimic human speech and other sounds
If you are looking for a bird that likes to be handled and may learn to talk or mimic sounds, then a parrot might be the right type of pet bird for you (instead of a Canary or Finch, for example).
Below are the many different species of parrots commonly kept as pets, organized by size.
