It is easy to distinguish a male Eclectus Parrot from its female counterpart.The male is a brilliant forest green, but more yellowish than other sub-species, with an orange beak. He has brilliant red patches on the sides and under wing coverts, blue bend to the wing and dark blue flight feathers. Vosmaeri males tend to have a more yellow on the tip of the tail than other subspecies. Female eclectus parrots are various combinations of brillant reds, blues and purples, depending on the subspecies. The female has a broad bright yellow band at the tip of the tail. Her breast is lavender-purple, which blends gradually with the red of her upper breast rather than having a distinct line of demarcation as in the red-sided. The under tail coverts are bright yellow. The beak of the female is black. The have a life span of probably up to 50 – 75 years and they are around 13.5 inches in length and their weigh 390-440 grams.When treated in a similarly caring and intelligent way they will quickly learn to communicate Eclectus parrots are very active and need a spacious cage and plenty of out-of-cage time to interact with you. Be sure to buy the largest cage that your home and budget can afford — these birds can become restless and unhappy when confined. Playful by nature, an Eclectus parrot will need a multitude of toys designed to be chewed and destroyed, such as those made of soft wood. Eclectus should be provided with as large a cage as possible, at least large enough to allow them to fully extend their wings. Appropriate toys should be provided.
