Bird Species

There are over 350 different parrot species.

The conures alone, with close to 40 different species, account for more than 10% of the total. We find that many of the differences are not noteworthy enough to warrant the confusion of a separate page for each species.

Additionally, too much pointed information often winds up causing misconceptions. For instance, the conure species is split into two genera with one being said to be louder than the other. People have mistakenly taken this information to mean the other is quiet. There is no such thing as a quiet parrot! It’s all relative.

Here is another example of a misconception: it is true that the scarlet macaw tends to be nippier than the blue and gold. However, if someone were to opt for the blue and gold with the expectation of getting a bird that won’t bite them, they would quickly find out that’s not how it works.

In the pages that follow, we have highlighted the shared traits of the parrot species most commonly kept as companions. We think this is the most important and relevant information we can offer.

I rescued I think Amazon Bird. Have had him just about a year, he won’t still come to me wants to bite me. I talk to him everyday trying to make contact. He runs to the back of his cage. I had another Amazon he passed away a year ago he would come to everyday. Any advise?
