Parrots are omnivores. Most parrots eat a diet that contains nuts, flowers, fruit, buds, seeds and insects. Seeds are their favourite food. They have strong jaws that allow them to snap open shells to get to the seed that's inside.
Parrots – also known as psittacines – belong to the Psittaciforme order. They're generally found in tropical areas, as well as temperate climates in the southern hemisphere. The greatest diversity of parrots is found in South America and Australasia.
With a couple of notable exceptions, males and females of most parrot species look virtually identical. It takes a keen eye — and usually a lab test — to tell a boy bird from a girl bird.
Although parrots have some taste glands at the back of their throats, most of their 300 or so taste buds are located on the roofs of their mouths.
Puck, a cheery blue parakeet, landed in the 1995 Guinness Book of World Records for his vocabulary skills, with a recognised set of 1,728 words.
