Most popular

People differ in their opinions about these parrots are more popular. Some look at the trendy parrots. Others say it is most common in pet stores. Some speak of the more popular in this country or that, but all the parrots in the world, five most popular are often described.

First Parakeets: The common Parakeet, Budgie to be exact, from Australia, and is often chosen as pets for children or people who are beginners in bird care, partly because of its low price. Colorful little "Budgies" are hardy, require little space and is much less maintenance than larger birds. They are very intelligent, and although content to whistle or sing quietly, some learn a few words. The name "budgerigar" comes from the Australian Aboriginal name for the parrot. It means "good food", but most "Budgie" owners would be horrified to hear you say. Among the many parrots in the world, this is probably the least expensive in both initial and maintenance costs.

Second Cockatiels: Another Australian species, these medium sized parrots are known for sophisticated whistling and singing. Although they can be taught to speak, many people find that the birds would rather whistle, mimic random sounds, like a cell phone rings. A disadvantage of Cockatiel is a powder substance used to spread its wings water-proof, so owners often find their fingers dusty after handling the bird.

Third Sun Conures: Among the parrots in the world, Sun Conures one of the wisest. Their plumage is red, orange, yellow, blue and green. Sun Conures are known to tolerate, but beware! These parrots often scream and scream instead of talk. Their 12-inch length means they require a smaller cage than larger parrots, but you and your family may require earplugs. If you train your Sunni lowering his voice, you will enjoy the antics because they are often playful parrots.

4th Parrot Latvian Latvian parrot, especially Pacific Parrot Latvian is one of the smallest known parrots in the world - about 4 inches in length! They are also one of the most harmful and spicy all the parrots in the world. These small parrots learn to talk with a voice that sounds like a robot. This little voice, their size and the fact that they do not scream, making them ideal for those who need a quiet companion.

5th African Greys: African Grey parrot is probably the most intelligent of parrots in the world, and yes, of all birds. These parrots are not as colorful as some. They are mostly gray, as the name suggests. They have a bright red or maroon tail, but depending on the subspecies. African Greys excel at mimicry, sometimes learn as much as 1-2000 words. They learn other sounds, too, and can quickly learn to imitate a jet engine when you walk through an airport with them. Among the many parrots in the world, these are the most demanding. As your child get bored with these birds and their owners want to provide entertainment. If you are looking for an intellectual, faithful and loving parrot, African Grey is probably a good choice.

How many parrots are there?

All in all! Parrots of the world that counts more than 350 different species and subspecies because of habitat loss, climate change, hunting and trade in live birds as pets, some parrots died. Others are listed as threatened or on the "endangered species" list.


People who buy a parrot, purchase of an engagement that is likely to continue throughout their lives and beyond. Most parrot owners are already 20 years or more, and the parrots themselves often have a life expectancy of more than 50 years. Some live to be nearly 100 years old. In addition, longevity many parrots in the world have a tendency to bond with one person. If that person breaks the tape in a certain way, the parrot die.
