Parrots, formerly known as Psittacidae and which acquired its current name due to many variants and subfamilies, are spread over all continents.
There are certain types of talking parrots. These birds are brilliant and friendly animals, with the repetition of sounds or expressions that they hear through an organ called the syrinx.
It is located next to the trachea, making the emission of these sounds possible since they do not have humans’ vocal cords.
However, although there are parrots that speak, they do not understand what they say, although they can relate them to specific situations.
Having explained how parrots can express sounds acquired from the humans around them, it is time to learn how to teach them to say certain expressions.
In this regard, it should be noted that males are better talkers than females, with a greater vocalization capacity. They must be in perfect health and trust the owner to put effort into this task.
You have to keep in mind that they will repeat these expressions better if they associate them with specific circumstances, such as “good morning” at dawn or “thank you” if you offer them a snack.
Therefore, you will have to teach them along with the action so that the idea settles in their head.
You have to be patient because it is not a short or straightforward process, so consistency in this work is essential.
Depending on the specimen, there can be parrots of 10 cm and others up to one meter, although the most normal is to find samples of between 30 and 40 cm.
Their beak is very characteristic of being curved, with a mobile lower jaw and an excellent cranial capacity, making them one of the most intelligent birds, on a par with the lovebirds.
The tongue is fat and fleshy, with fibrous papillae in certain species. Its flying ability is quite good, also showing excellent skills to cling to any support and climb.
Another defining feature of this family is the intense coloration of its plumage. Generally, their primary color is green, although there are various alternative colors such as red, blue, or yellow.
As for their wings, they are round and long. It is a widespread custom to clip its wings once it has been domesticated.
