Senegals are of the smaller variety of parrots, being about 9
inches long. These playful birds have a head clothed in ash-gray
feathers, green body feathers, and a yellowish-orange
underbelly. They are from Africa.
The Senegal is a bird that is full of itself and will
generally love you to death. Senegals are big parrots in small
bodies and will entertain themselves when necessary. However,
they grow very strong bonds with their owners however. You need
not feel guilty about leaving your Senegal at home alone, making
it a perfect single person’s bird for a house or apartment.
While they may chatter a bit, they are not loud nor are they
screamers. Rather, they are very sleek, coordinated, and
charming. They will require time with you as with any bird but
many consider this to be an excellent first time bird because of
their lower overall needs. Their talking ability is in the low -
medium range. They are excellent for supervised children over
ten to twelve years old.
