The parrot is found on every continent except Europe in tropical habitats.


The parrot's beak is one adaptation that helps it survive.  Their strong and curved beaks help them to crack open the hard shells of nuts.


A parrot has some hollow bones that allow the bird to lift itself easily into the air for flying.

Flying Pattern

A parrot will often fly erratically when being pursued by a predator.  This flying pattern makes the parrot difficult to catch and will distract its predator from making it the next meal.
