Define "big bird personality"

What does it mean when people refer to certain smaller birds with having big bird personalities. What does it mean? Can you give some examples of birds that has this personality and some birds who doesn't.

Thanks in advance

I have a parrotlet... they definatly are big birds in little bodies... they think they are 10 feet tall and bullet proof. Kinda like thechihuahuas of the bird family... they are very opinionate and fearless... nippy and but oh so loveable!

They act bigger than they are. They can boss you about, boss other birds about and they're super confident

it means that they act and behave as if they are big parrots. They are big birds in a small package. Some examples of parrots with big bird personalities are: parrotlets, lovebirds, etc. They can be quite aggressive towards people and other birds, but you love them because they can make you laugh because they know they are just as good as a big bird, and can do anything that a big bird can do. They are also very playful and active and love attention.

I think Quakers are big bird personalities their always up to no good, very smart, they will chase you down, not afraid of anything.

I agree quakers have big personalities - they roar like a lions and think they're lions too. Anything that is in a small package but act and behave like it's bigger and tougher than it tiny size I would call big personality in a small body.
