Spectacled Parrotlet Species Profile
Traits:  The spectacled parrotlet is a feisty, intelligent bird with a lot of attitude. They are well-liked because of being quiet, yet they can learn many words and they whistle very well too. They learn behavior cues such as "Step Up/Down" and "Kiss kiss," and some can even learn how to play dead. They are affectionate and love spending time with their owners, yet are happy and independent enough to play contentedly with their toys while their owner is away.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Although tiny, the spectacled parrotlet needs plenty of room in which to exercise because it is a very active bird. To prevent boredom, plenty of toys should be rotated in a spectacled parrotlet’s cage on a regular basis, and interactive, one-on-one time with it pet bird owner is essential to their well-being. Because they tend to be fearless, keep a close eye on the spectacled parrotlet, particularly around other pets in the household.

Expert Advice
"Spectacled parrotlets are the gems of the parrotlet world because of their good looks, their charming personalities and their energy. They are usually not one-person birds but instead fall in love with anyone and everyone."
