So if the bird has impressive dimensions, then you can choose for it some sonorous and long name (but not too long). A little parrot is more suitable short nickname or some diminutive name.



The pronunciation of the name is also very important, and not so much for the owners, as for the bird itself. Hearing and vocal cords parrots are very different from human. And the fact that people seem simple and easy to pronounce, the bird may seem very difficult. Some parrots remember sounds quickly, while others practically do not perceive. Here are some tips:
