Eclectus Parrot


Species group:
 Other Parrots

Other name(s): 
Grand Eclectus Parrot (Eclectus roratus roratus);
Vosmaeri Eclectus Parrot (E. r. vosmaeri);
Red-sided Eclectus Parrot (E. r. polychloros);
Solomon Island Eclectus (E. r. solomonensis)

Scientific name: Eclectus roratus

Appearance

Details: It's easy to tell the boys from the girls with the unusual Eclectus Parrot. The females are flashy red birds, while the males are the quieter shades of green. The first collectors actually believed that they had discovered two different species. Today, the Eclectus Parrot has become a sought-after pet not just because of its beauty, but because of its relatively social yet independent personality and its ability to talk or sometimes even to sing.
