The Eclectus parrot is one of the most beautiful birds in the world. This species of parrots is known for the sexually dimorphic or the uniquely colored male and female bird.

Today, it is one of the most popular birds found in captivity across the world. Known for its demeanour and intelligence, this bird is also a popular choice because of the spectacular coloration on its body. These birds depict very strong flock behaviors and will get very attached to the family that they are with. Unlike most parrot breeds, they will have strong bonds with the members of the family despite being kept in pairs. They are extremely intelligent birds that require a great deal of mental stimulation to thrive in captivity. Of course, their need for attention will keep their owners on their toes.
