The Blue-Bellied Parrots

Dear,
Mrs.Seller, welcome to the paradise of an endangered animal called the blue-bellied parrot!
I hope you enjoy! :)

In order to survive the blue-bellied parrot needs a tropical environment to live in. It feeds on seeds, such as wild rose seeds, or dandelions seeds, fruits like wild berries or fruits, flower buds, nectar from flowers and some insects such as ants or ladybugs and a few small animal such as squirrels. During the coldest months of the year (December to February), the birds feed exclusively on bird seeds at backyard feeders. In warmer months, the blue bellied parrots usually search for food in groups of two to fifty birds. They feed on plant buds, weeds, fruits and berries found on common shrubs and trees. They can only drink fresh water, no salty water. It also needs a nest placed on a large tree or palm made out of mud and twigs.
Biome
The blue-bellied parrot lives in the deciduous forest of Brazil. The deciduous forest's annual average temperature is 10°C and the average rainfall is about 30 to 60 inches a year. One thing that is interesting about this biome's seasons is that the forests have mild summers averaging about 21°C. Summer months usually begin in early June and end in late August, winter months don't begin until December. Winter temperatures are fairly cool with an average temperature just below freezing. Most of the world's deciduous forest is located by an ocean. The ocean and the wind are two big factors of why the temperature and climate change so much in this biome. These conditions helps the blue bellied parrots to live and have plenty of food for survival.
Ecosystem
The major ecosystem the blue- bellied parrot is part of is the dense canopy of the forest, this is the uppermost layer in a forest, formed by the crowns of the trees. This is where the tops of tall tree stand and they face the sun at all times. Many different kinds of birds live here.


Adaptation
Blue bellied parrots are very intelligent birds. They are often able to mimic many sounds and talk.These intelligent birds require plenty of physical and mental exercises.In the parrot family, the use of a beak , is in preparation of food. The beak is sharp and has a hook at the end to grab its prey. The larger parrots are able to grasp food in one foot and bring it to his beak where it can be prepared for swallowing. They have a blue patch on their belly, surrounded by a lime green body which helps them camouflage in the green deciduous forest in turn helps them survive against their predators. They start their day early in the morning flying across the deciduous forest looking for food and water.
Human Impact
Some positive impacts humans have on the blue bellied parrots are - they have trees to live in and many other kinds of parrots to interact with. They happily live amongst other birds and animals. Indeed, their nests are often shared with many familiar backyard birds such as starlings, finches, or even (as documented by the Audubon Society) the great horned owl. Even squirrels have been found to be living within these parrots nests in some cases.

Some negative impacts that us humans have on these parrots are - we build roads in between the trees, and we also keep on littering. Which is dangerous and can be harmful because if they accidentally eat glass or plastic it can hurt them from the inside, and can also cause death.
Survival
(Producers)
1. The wild rose flower, and releases seeds and the blue bellied parrot eats them.
(Primary consumers)
2. A snake eats blue bellied parrot
(Secondary consumer)
3. Bigger birds eat the snakes up such as a hawk.
4.Then the hawk will eventually die and get decomposed by the worms.
