Hello and Welcome to Talk Parrots, I'm not sure if red rumps can mimic speech but maybe another member can tell you if its possible.

We love pics here so if you'd like to share your flock with us please do!

*waves wing* Hello! I am relatively new here myself; haven't posted all that much.

I am intrigued by ringnecks. Do any of yours talk? I've seen a number of really interesting and sweet videos of ringnecks on YouTube.


The tiel reminds me a bit of our Donald, er, hubby's Donald!

Hello and welcome to Talk Parrots!

Red-rumped parrots are quite flighty and I don't know of many people that keep them as companion birds. They seem to be happier in an aviary. That said, it's not impossible to work with them. If you can get your head around the basics of clicker and target training you can work with most birds Speech-wise they aren't the best, but all birds are unique individuals

Oh how pretty they are! Are they very closely related to Bourkes? I have a Bourke Baby, he was hand fed still pretty skittish but he's much better now. He's becoming quite friendly and really loves us. He follows me around and sits on me and he will mimmic our sounds quite well. It's obviously not clear words but he distinctly mimics us and says "Pretty Pretty, pretty bird, Jas-perr" (his name) and whistles. I got him to do it quickly by sort of combining the words with a whistle sound and he picked it up right away. Now I'm just saying the words and he gets it. How closely related are those red-rump parrots? Uh, ummm I mean, not because I want one.....

Bourke's parrots are in their own genus now as they were recently removed from the Neophema (grass parrots) family and red-rumped parrots belong to the Psephotus family (also contains the mulga parrot). The biggest similarities are that they are both ground foraging parrot species from Australia but other than that they aren't species that I would personally want to keep together. My uncle had an enormous flight, about 40 foot, with 3 Bourke's, a male red rump and some red fronted kakarikis in it and that single red rump would go out of his way to attack the other birds and had to be removed. If you are interested in another similar species then look at the birds in the Neophema group. Scarlet chested parrots are ideal to keep with Bourke's as they're a gentle species
