The Second Smallest Parrot, The #Parrotlet

All That Has A Hookbeak Bites!

Yes, this little parrot is the second smallest in the psittacine family, but it doesn't keep them from using that hookbill!

Parrotlets, who are only a couple inches and approximately 30 grams, seem to go through a 'teenage' rebellion phase in which they like to bite! This starts around 2 to 3 months of age and lasts for several months. Then by the time they have matured and have calmed down, around 8 months, they seem to relax and be more easy-going.

One of my favorite things about these little guys is that, even though they are small, they recognize me. The babies I've raised like to fly to my shoulder or head and say hello. They like to just hang out and get treats too. Their pastel colors delight me, their pear-shaped bodies make me chuckle and their happiness makes me smile. Love them!

They are active parrots, so I like giving them more than enough space. As a matter of fact, when they fly, they can hover in a spot, like a hummingbird! I guess that makes sense, given the fact that they are similar in size.

Cool video. I just got a 4 year old female all blue parrotlet. It wasn’t wanted and been in two places. It’ll be loved at my home.

How clever are these birds? Can you teach them to do tasks for food like moving objects into a circle? I once read somewhere that a parrot wanted to drink some water from a container but it was too far down to reach, so he dropped little pebbles in the water to make the water rise higher.

Hello, thank you for your video. I’m thinking about getting one, but I’ve heard they will kill each other if you have more than one. I was surprised to see how many you have. Any advice on how to keep more than one together?

If you're recommending them to new bird owners, should probably mention they have a deceptively strong bite relative to their size. Mine has left me a few scars on my fingers over the years. Usually the result of him having very aggressive reactions to random objects that he would become territorial over, like a bottle of pills for instance. Like many parrot species, they will bite YOU rather than the object they are distressed about.

I was owned by a Parrotlet in the past. She was female and blue. My all time favorite movie is Gone With the Wind. I named her Bonnie Blue after Scarlett and Rhett's daughter in the movie. Bonnie thought she was the Queen of our home. She was a joy. She passed away at 16. We don't know what happened, just that one morning she was gone.
3 and 1/2 years have past and I am thinking about getting another Parrotlet.

my parrotlet flew away and never came back like 2 months ago. she’s gotten out her cage before and came back. how long can they live outside? i live in a apt complex and a lot of residents have birds in their yard. i just don’t want her to be suffering or scared.

What's the name of your colourful parrot that has the yellow and red colour? I looked all through the different species on Wikipedia but couldn't find one that looked like that!

Do you find that parrotlets are mean? I had one many years ago and it bit so hard all the time, just like a can opener, wouldn't let go. I've heard that they are referred to as little piranhas!
