Soar to New Decorating Heights with Tropical Bird Sculptures and Parrot Wall Art

With exotic plumage, a keen intelligence, and the uncanny ability to mimic human speech, what’s not to love about parrots? Whether you’re a doting fid owner yourself or just like to admire from afar, find a tropical bird sculpture or tropical bird wall decor that captures all of your favorite aspects, from their kaleidoscopic feathers to their cheeky dispositions.

Consider this cute parrot statue; it’s the perfect addition to a teak coffee table or even a foyer cabinet. If you’re a proud scarlet macaw mom (or dad), it’s also an eye-catching way to proclaim your love for your companion bird. Greet guests in the entryway with this parrot sculpture, and hang a mirror overhead wreathed in tree branches. Hints of red can then be worked into a striped woven rug at your feet to help tie the room together.

If your walls are looking a bit on the drab side, you’d be hard-pressed to find decor bursting with more vitality and cheer than parrot wall art. This original from Joanne Ferrara mixes metal and fruitwood to stunning effect; hang it in a living room flush with greenery and a palm leaf ceiling fan for an exotic rainforest vibe.

Are canvases more your speed? Mix your love of art with all-out adoration for perhaps the most iconic parrots of all: scarlet and “B&G” macaws! Perched upon lush branches, a blue macaw relaxes close to his scarlet companion. A third parrot completes the trio, creating an interesting alternation of blue and red on your wall. Hang this parrot canvas in a cozy nook with a swing chair—or perhaps even alongside your own macaw’s cage on a nearby wall. With but a glance, it’ll be plain to see just who rules the roost in your home!

Parrots in Paradise Tropical Canvas Wall Art

Cockatoos aren’t often the first bird that comes to mind when people think of “parrots,” but avian lovers can attest that these creatures are in fact part of the same order. This cockatoo statue offers a softer color scheme. He would look positively lovely amidst white sheer curtains or a chair upholstered in coral fabric. Whether bold and whimsical or pale and plumed, parrot decor will enliven your surroundings almost as much as the real deal!

Selecting the Perfect Parrot as a Pet

“Polly want a cracker?” Your mind probably registered this phrase in a very particular voice: warbling and prefaced by a squawk. You may have pictured a large, scarlet bird roosting on a shoulder, preening his jeweled plumage of yellows, greens, and blues. This is the Scarlet Macaw, one of the most popular representations of the parrot—but certainly not the only!

Parrots are a motley crew: pet-parrots.com says some are nearly three feet, while others are a mere seven inches. Their range of personalities is even greater! In the animal kingdom, parrots are the life of the party. If removed for too long from the spotlight, they will let you know—sometimes verbally. Most parrots can mimic human speech. With thorough training, these pets can become a welcome addition to your own flock. Which would you choose?

Parakeets, Budgies, and Cockatiels are all popular household birds due to their small statures and placid dispositions. Cockatiels and Parakeets can whistle songs and, according to pet-parrots.com, Budgies have the potential to learn up to three hundred words!

More mainstream parrot picks are the Lovebirds and Conures. Cultivate that mischievous nature all parrots own by teaching the Blue Crown Conure to stick out his tongue!

African Greys, Macaws, and Cockatoos are birds with attitudes proportional to their size. African Greys are fiercely loyal to a chosen family member, and Cockatoos are adept at learning tricks. Macaws are the parrot poster children and have lifespans that extend past even those of a cat or dog.

With such a colorful assortment of avian attributes, it can be difficult to choose which parrot is best for you and your family. Things to keep in mind are that all parrots share a drive for mental stimulation—give them challenging toys! Cages must be spacious; if they are not, your feathered friend might have a few choice words for unsuspecting visitors! Parrots require constant handling and attention, but these small investments make for a truly amusing and loving animal companion.
