Coral-Billed Pionus Species Profile
Traits:  Unlike many other parrot species, the coral-billed Pionus is on the quiet, non-energetic side. They are more reserved in nature. Although they are not the greatest talkers, they learn new sounds. They also give off a musky or sweet odor.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Birds of this genus make a characteristic wheezing or snorting sound when they are excited or frightened; those unfamiliar with it may mistake it as distress or a symptom of illness. In our homes, Pionus parrots are susceptible to obesity, vitamin-A deficiency and aspergillosis. Care should be taken to provide enough natural vitamin A sources in their diet. Consult with your avian veterinarian for the best diet for your Pionus.

Expert Advice
"Coral-billed Pionus are wonderful pets, although they are really rare; they are quiet, love being with people, are cuddly and love to imitate words they hear. They are good eaters and enjoy their fresh veggies and fruits."
