What do parrots eat?
Parrots have a strong curved beak which can crack open nuts and seeds.
Their beaks and their brush-tipped tongues can also get to the seeds in fruit.
Parrots, parakeets, lorikeets, cockatiels, and cockatoos eat seeds, nectar, pollen, flower buds, and fruit – especially fruit.
Most parrots are from tropical regions and therefore they like to eat tropical fruit.
