Parrots of South America as 27, the predominantly green Amazon species are most recognizable parroty piratey look, that comes to mind for most people when they think of the bird parrot for excellence. If you love the colors you can consider one of the impressive 16 species of macaws, ranging from most red, green and blue combinations macaw feathers as popular blue and gold. The Little Black Directed Caique may also consider that belong to the family of colors, with black, yellow spots, white and green. Leaving Central and South America, if you are too embarrassed by the difficulty or even impossibility of telling the males from the females of many species other than parrot, why not opt for a male Eclectus, his body is green with a little red under the wings and the striking orange bill.

What does the African Grey parrot has no grace, is invented in the brain. Suffice to say that the most intelligent of birds ever studied was the parrot Alex, Dr. Pepperberg famous colleague. But to be fair the African Grey has no monopoly of intelligence parrot, parrots as a whole are not brains of birds. A common question is "what is the most intelligent of parrot?" And this question I can only answer that they are all incredibly intelligent bird so small. In fact, you can almost rival the African Grey parrot, when it comes to learning tricks or how to talk. The change to the giants, macaws are usually very good tips for learning and imitation, or dare I say like a parrot repeating the actions of its human partner.
