Can you think of something else that can speak like us, humans? Yes, there are quite a few species of birds that can imitate or mimic the human voice. Today’s collection of coloring pages is inspired by one such endearing bird that is also popular as pets. We are talking about parrots.
Belonging to the order Psittaciformes, Parrots can be found mostly in the tropical and subtropical areas. Their popularity as pets can be attributed to their ability to imitate human speech. Most parrots are colorful, with a mix of greens and reds being the most recognized color combination.
Parrots are easily identified by their characteristic features like the strong and curved bills, clawed zygodactyl feet that can hold things, strong legs, and their upright stance. Different parrot species vary in terms of their size, making them the most variably sized bird with respect to length. Most species also form a lifelong bond with couples always staying together, even in large groups. Let’s jump right in and discover the many different species as well as different facets of this “talking” bird through this interesting collection of parrot coloring sheets to print.
