White-crowned parrots are the smallest parrots in the pionus genus. But they are also the biggest daredevils. They are funny, and like to sit on your shoulder, play and dance. Some can even talk a little, but only have a small vocabulary. Long naps and quiet are very important for white-crowned parrots. They need around twelve hours of sleep a day.
Please note: each bird has its own personality, so this information only provides a rough characterization of the breed.
