African Gray Parrot

African Grey Parrot

Psittacus Erithacus

The African Grey Parrot is a medium-sized parrot found in the primary and secondary rainforest of West and Central Africa. Experts regard it as one of the most intelligent birds. They feed primarily on palm nuts, seeds, fruits, leafy matter, but have been observed eating snails. Their overall gentle nature and their inclination and ability to mimic speech have made them popular pets. This has led many to be captured from the wild and sold into the pet trade. The African Grey Parrot is listed on CITES appendix II, which restricts trade of wild caught species, because wild populations can not sustain trapping for the pet trade. As a pet, they must be entertained, or they start to pluck their feathers, resulting in having no feathers at all.

Red-Lored Parrot

Amazona autumnulis autumnulis

The Red-Lored Parrot – also known as Primrose-cheeked Amazon or "Loro cariamarillo" (Amazona autumnalis autumnalis) – is endemic to the tropical regions of the Americas, from eastern Mexico south to Ecuador. A disjunctive population exists in central Brazil, where it occurs in humid evergreen to semi-deciduous forests up to 1,100 m latitudes. It is absent from the Pacific side of Central America north of Costa Rica. Not originally known from El Salvador, a pair – perhaps escaped from captivity – nested successfully in 1995 and 1996 in the outskirts of San Salvador and the species might expand its range permanently into that country in the future.
