Parrots or talking parrots , also known as psittacines ,are birds of the roughly 372 species in 86 genera that makes them up the Psittaciformes, which is found in most tropical and some subtropical regions. This order is subdivided into three categories of superfamilies:
1) Psittacoidea ( ‘true’ parrots) ,
2) Cacatuoidea (cockatoos),
3) Strigopoidea (New Zealand parrots).
Parrots generally have a pantropical distribution with many species inhabiting regions in the Southern Hemisphere. The largest diversity of parrots within the world is in South America and Australia.
The characteristic features of parrots are curved bill, an upright stance, strong legs, and also the clawed zygodactyl feet. Most of the parrots are coloured differently, and some of them are multi-coloured. In cockatoos the plumage ranges from mostly white to black, and on the head a mobile crest of feathers looks amazing.
Types of Breed:
Macaws, Amazon parrots, cockatiels, parakeets, and cockatoos.
These parrots can understand and speak human speech or other sounds. Parrots do not have any vocal cords, so sound is accomplished by air across the mouth of bifurcated trachea. Different types of sounds are produced by changing the depth and chane in shape of trachea.
In Nature, the seasonal changes use to create the conditions that stimulate the release in breeding sex hormones that gives the parrots the force to breed.In most parrots this force to breed is related to the warm weather and increasingly longer climate of daylight hours of spring. In detention, these parrots are spring breeders. When these parrots are fed properly then they can support multiple clutches within a long breeding season that can extend up to six months from late winter to early summer season.
Health issues & Proper care:-
1) Diet:- The biggest hazard to your parrot’s health by far, is feeding it sunflower seeds and prepared diets based on cereal grains – particularly corn.
2) Boredom:- The second most common cause for health issues in domestic parrots is boredom and lack of stimulation. Parrots are active ,extremely intelligent and social creatures by nature. When the life of parrots become boring and they feel themselves lonely, they can often respond with self-destructive behaviour.
4) Poorly Designed Cages, Perches And Toys
5) Aggression From Other Pets And Other Parrots:-It can be dangerous when two parrots of different sizes share a perch, a cage or a play area.
