Parrot lore: In the story Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, a parrot accompanied pirate Long John Silver at every moment. Were parrots really associated with pirates? Maybe not, but they are fascinating birds, so it is no wonder parrots appear in children’s stories.

Parrots come in a variety of bright colors, mostly made up of greens, reds, blues, and yellows.

Yes, parrots have that 'knowing' look in the eye. A guy often brings a parrot into a cafe I frequent and it sits there on his shoulder eyeing the activities and watching the crows outside.
