-Parrots | by Prideaux John Selby
In presenting to our readers a volume containing the natural history of the Parrots, or family Psitta-cidae, we have to direct their attention to an assemblage of birds, not less remarkable for the peculiarity of their form, the gay, varied, and in many instances, splendid plumage in which they are attired, than for the intelligence and docility so many evince in a state of captivity or domestication, and the peculiar facility possessed by several species of imitating the intonations of the human voice, and learning by rote words, and even sentences, which they remember and repeat with clearness and precision.
