8 Top Brightly Colored Pet Birds


8 Top Brightly Colored Pet Birds

Although parrots and other pet birds come in pretty much every color of the rainbow, most sport only two or three main hues. But if you are looking to adopt a new feathered friend that is extraordinarily multi-colored, there are a few striking species to select from. Here is a look at the eight most multi-colored and impressive looking pet bird species to help you compare their plumage.

01. Sun Conure


When it comes to brightly colored pet birds, the beautiful Sun Conure is a medium-sized parrot that combines a rainbow of colors all in one exceptionally gorgeous bird. With unexpected deep violet markings on the plumage of their tails, they sport a visually impressive color palette. Photos just don’t seem to do them justice.

02. Jenday Conure

A close second to Sun Conures in terms of color, size, personality, and much more are the Jenday Conures. Also hailing from South America, Jenday Conures are often mistaken for young Sun Conures when they are in fact fully grown and mature adults. They sport a beautiful fiery mixture of colors.


03. Rainbow Lorikeet

Lorikeets, and in particular the Rainbow Lorikeets, are exceptionally beautiful and colorful birds who are sure to catch just about any bird lover’s eye. Originating in Australia, these little beauties have brush-like structures built onto the ends of their tongues so that they can more easily drink nectar out of the centers of flowers—a staple of their diet. In addition to their beautiful plumage, they have charming personalities and make great pets for the right people.

04. Scarlet-Chested Parakeet

Scarlet Chested Parakeets, also commonly known as “Splendid Parakeets,” are one of the families of grass parakeets and are arguably one of the most brilliantly colored ​small bird species available as pets. Use caution if you are interested in adopting one of these birds, though, as they have a reputation for being harder to tame than some other types of hookbill birds.

05. Eclectus Parrot

Eclectus Parrots are large, beautiful birds, known less for the many different colors they have, but rather for the brilliance of the colors that they display. Like the Scarlet Chested Parakeets, Eclectus Parrots are dimorphic; you can immediately tell the difference between males and females based on the color of their feathers. Highly sought after as pets, these intelligent birds hail from Australia and have become favorites of bird lovers around the world.

06. Scarlet Macaw

Macaws are known for their beautiful colors, bold personalities, and advanced capabilities for mimicking human speech. Like some other types of large parrots, Macaws are quite skilled at learning short phrases; some even learn to sing snippets of songs.

07. Rosella

Crimson rosellas are parrots from Australia. They are not the same kind of cuddly, human-friendly birds that some other parrots. This bird may willingly perch on a shoulder, but it may not tolerate petting. If very tame, a rosella is a fine bird for a careful child. But be wary, as there is a chance of biting.

08. Canary

The wild canary is a small finch that is native to the Macranesian islands of the Azores, Madeira, and the Canary Islands. The wild canary is actually greenish yellow over most of its body with yellow underparts. Although yellow is the most common color for the domestic canary, the domestic canary has been selectively bred to produce an array of bright colors including orange, white, red, and yellow.
