African Grey Parrot
The parrot family consists of 328 species found in southern Asia, Africa, Central and South America, and Australia. Parrots are most known for the brilliant coloration of some species and that ability of some species to mimic sounds and voices. All lay small, white eggs, but the nest varies. Most live in holes in trees, but some choose the side of cliffs or in the soil. Parrots have a hooked beak and claws on their toes to grasp branches.
