Chirper : Senegal

Senegal Parrots are birds of open woodland and savanna. With the exception of the Ring-Necked Parakeet, the Senegal is the only parrot inhabitant of the savanna woodlands and forest mossaic of West Africa. It is a gregarious species, continuously chattering with a range of whistling and squawking calls. Senegal Parrots live an average of approximately 25–30 years in the wild, and have been known to live for 50 years in captivity.


These little parrots are charming and highly trainable, and often are a great source of entertainment and amusement for their owners. They are generally robust birds. Well-socialized Senegals enjoy regular human interaction, but can also play independently.


Hand-raised and well-socialized Senegal Parrots are generally affectionate and playful, and bond well with their owners. On the other hand, wild-caught or poorly socialized Senegal Parrots tend to be skittish and frightened of humans.
