Eclectus Sapien by platypus12 Eclectus Sapien by platypus12
For the #Age-of-Avians Project.

Eclectus Sapiens (or Psittacins as they call themselves) are the descendents of the Eclectus Parrot. The two rear foot digits on Zygodactyl feet allows them to preform tasks that would usually require two hands with just one, giving them extra dexterity. Despite having a language of their own, they still retain their tendency for vocal mimicry which they use to their advantage, such as luring prey by mimicking mating calls.

Another sentient bird?
How are the relations between these and the Corvins?

Well, these sentient parrots may or may not be canon at times but I'd think that the relationships between Corvins and Psittacians (sentient parrots) may have been like the relationship between the Cro-magnons and the Neanderthals. They'd be trading tools and other things like that, and exchanging bits of cultures.

Yeah, but these sapient parrots may or may not by canon at certain times. Same applies for other sentient bird species (excluding the Corvins). There's a list of them too. [link]

Thanks! :D I chose the Eclectus Parrot because they're one of the most intelligent species of parrots. :D
