Vosmaeri Eclectus Species Profile
Traits:  The vosmaeri Eclectus parrots can be more aloof than other Eclectus parrots, but they still enjoy swinging on spiral toys and playing with their owners.A common misunderstand is that the vosmaeri Eclectus is the most intelligent of the Eclectus subspecies.

Male vosmaeri Eclectus parrots are a lighter green with yellowish feathering on their back, nape and back of the head. The male vosmaeri Eclectus parrot has extensive red on the sides of its body, and the primary feathers do not have green edging. Vosmaeri Eclectus females have a violet breast with some red. They have yellow coloring at the base of their tail and on the vent.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Many aviculturists agree that supplemental vitamins added to an Eclectus’s diet can contribute to “toe tapping,” a condition where the parrot’s toes repetitively extend and contract. Ask your avian veterinarian before adding supplements or manufactured foods to your pet Eclectus’s diet.

Eclectus parrots are susceptible to feather picking, respiratory infections and excessive chewing. They need higher vitamin-A than other parrots. Vitamin-A-enriched foods include carrots, squash, broccoli, kale and cooked sweet potatoes. Cases of feather picking in this pet bird are often caused by malnutrition and vitamin-A deficiency.

Eclectus parrots enjoy spending time with their owners, but these pet birds also like some quiet time alone. Eclectus owners should be prepared for a pet parrot whose personality will change through time. Provide Eclectus parrots with toys made of softer wood because their beaks are not as powerful as those of other parrots. Eclectus parrots enjoy wrapping their toes around their toys, so supervise your bird for any potential safety hazards.
