Origin of African Grey Parrots


African Grey Parrots originate from Central Africa, specifically Congo and Cameroon. They are also found in Eastern Africa, but not in Southern Africa. They live in rainforests and eat fruit, nuts, seeds, blossoms, leaves and bark.

African Grey Parrots are one of the most popular pet birds in the world. They are also known for their intelligence and can be taught to speak. They were first captured in Africa, which is why they were originally called African Greys, but now they are found all over the world. Their popularity as pets has led to a lot of people breeding them and so they have become more common than ever before.

The species has been domesticated for over 400 years and is often used as pets. These intelligent parrots have been known to mimic human voices and learn how to say words like “hello” or “what’s up?”

The African Grey Parrot is a medium-sized parrot with a large head, short tail, and long narrow wings. They have a lifespan of 40-50 years on average, but they can live up to 80 years old in captivity. Their feathers are mostly gray with blue highlights and they have red at the top of their wings, thighs, and tail feathers.

According to the data, they say the African Grey Parrot is native to equatorial Africa from Senegal in West Africa east to Mozambique on the Indian Ocean coast; south through tropical Central Africa to Angola and Zambia; then along the eastern coast of South Africa. The range extends just into Sudan in northeast Africa and down through East Africa as far as northern Somalia on the Gulf of Aden coast. Read the complete article here!
