At the Creek Park Bird Show, we have over 20 different species of parrots! Want to know more about them? Here are some facts about parrots! How many different kinds of parrots are there? – There are over 360 different species. Almost 100 of these are threatened with extinction, mainly due to loss of habitat and capture to be pets. 

Where are wild parrots found? – Most live in tropical and semi-tropical areas like Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, India, New Zealand and Australia. In what ways are parrots different from other types of birds? – Parrots are ?zygodactyls?, which means that they have 2 toes pointing to the front and 2 pointing to the back. – They have a hinged upper and lower beak. (Watch a parrot yawn sometimes ? unlike other birds, it raises the upper part of the beak without moving the whole head!) – Parrots are the only birds that can lift up food to their mouths using their feet. 

Other birds use their beaks to lift their food or use their feet to grasp and carry it. Are all feathers the same? Definitely not! There are three basic kinds of feathers: – Down feathers are the small, soft, fluffy feathers located closest to the bird?s skin. They help the bird regulate its temperature. – Contour feathers cover the head and body. They make the bird very smooth so it can travel easily through the air. – Flight and tail feathers are much stiffer and longer than contour feathers. They move the air so that the bird can fly.
