Electus Parrot for Sale Online
Large populations of this parrot remain, and they are sometimes considered pests for eating fruit off trees. Some populations restricted to relatively small islands are comparably rare. Their bright feathers are also used by native tribespeople in New Guinea as decorations. Aside from their mesmerizing appearance, these parrots can also be great companions. Joseph Forshaw, in his book Parrots of the World, noted that the first European ornithologists to see Eclectus Parrots thought they were of two distinct species.
The Eclectus parrot (Eclectus roratus) is a parrot native to the Solomon Islands, Sumba, New Guinea, and nearby islands, northeastern Australia, and the Maluku Islands (Moluccas). It is unusual in the parrot family for its extreme sexual dimorphism of the colors of the plumage; the male having a mostly bright emerald green plumage and the female a mostly bright red and purple/blue plumage.

They are known for their candy corn beaks, which are smooth and shiny and look just like candy corn (but without the white bit)! Females, on the other hand, are primarily red with purple or blue stomachs and shoulders. Their beaks are smooth and shiny as well, but they are black in color. The eyes of both the male and female are yellow. Eclectus Parrots have very particular dietary requirements. They need lots of fresh vegetables and plenty of calcium. Many enjoy fresh fruit as well, but variety is key.
Eclectus parrots are among the top three “talking” parrots. They rival the talented African Grey and Amazon parrots in terms of clarity of speech and vocabulary. Some even learned entire songs.
