The natural home of these parrots is found in South America. It is mainly centered around the upper part of the Amazon river, in Brazil.  In these humid, tropical forests they prefer to nest high in the canopies or in the holes in the trees. Even though it is common in captivity, it is still proclaimed as an endangered species in the wild. The leading cause of this is the destruction of habitat, poaching, and illegal smuggling.White Bellied Caïque Parrot

These parrots are considered small, with an average size reaching up to 9 inches (23 centimeters) in length. With a short little tail and a robust, chubby body, they definitely have that goofy, cute look. They share a lot of details with the other, closely related caique breeds, and one of these are the distinct “ruffled” feathers on the breast, giving them their name.White Bellied Caïque Parrot

Whether happy, frightened or merely looking for attention, these little parrots will give out their shrill, high pitched tweets and whistles. So to avoid those higher levels of noise, make sure your pet is getting enough of attention and free space, and that it’s in general – a happy parrot.White Bellied Caïque Parrot
