Eclectus Parrot

The eclectus parrot is unusual in the parrot family for its marked sexual dimorphism (the male being green and the female red and purple). A stocky short-tailed parrot, it measures around 14 inches in length.  Eclectus make good talkers, are quiet and prefer to perch than be cuddled.  They are beautiful to behold and always stand out as a stunning bird.
