Of all our eclectus parrots, which tend to be independent and do not form as strong of bonds as other parrots, the Solomon Island eclectus is considered the tamest and most affectionate.They are relatively talkative and, if given adequate attention, can make good companions, especially males. Females tend to be a little more aggressive. Eclectus are not as noisy as many other large parrot species but many learn to talk.They are small eclectus and closely resemble red-sided eclectus. The male is a brilliant forest green. He has brilliant red patches on the sides and under wing coverts, blue bend to the wing and dark blue flight feathers. Males of the different subspecies are very difficult to identify visually but Solomon’s are usually significantly smaller.The female Solomon Island eclectus is brilliant red and looks like a small version of the red-sided eclectus. The head is red, and at the base of the neck where chest feathers begin and on the back, a blue band cuts across almost like a collar. The under-tail coverts are red and the tail is red. Like the red-sided, the Solomon Island hen has distinct blue eye rings. She has a black lower mandible, or beak, and the upper mandible is black.The life span of the Solomon Island eclectus is probably up to 30 years and they are around 12 inches in length and their weigh 375-400 grams.
