Eclectus Parrots are large, beautiful birds, known less for the many different colors they have, but rather for the brilliance of the colors that they display. Like the Scarlet Chested Parakeets, Eclectus Parrots are dimorphic; you can immediately tell the difference between males and females based on the color of their feathers. Highly sought after as pets, these intelligent birds hail from Australia and have become favorites of bird lovers around the world.
