An African Grey Parrot is grey... with white around it's eye... and a bright red tail. The tail on the left is Bongo's baby tail (1 month), as he grows... so will his tail... as you can see by the tail in the middle (4 months). The tail on the right is that of a Timneh African Grey.

The Congo African Grey Parrot (left) is about 13 to 16 inches and the Timneh African Grey Parrot (right) is about an inch smaller.


Congo... larger - all black beak - red tail feathers


Timneh... smaller - color on upper beak - maroon tail feathers

Cameroon African Grey... not found as often - larger than the Congo, similar in beak and tail color.

 

One way to tell the estimated age of an African Grey is by looking at their eyes.


1 month old... darker eye, all black to a darker grey iris with black pupil. Usually this color up to 6 months of age.


By the time they reach a year old the grey iris is lighter in color, pupil black.


1 1/2 years old to 3 years old the iris is yellow in color, pupil is black and really stands out. About 3-4 years of age, they will have a light yellow iris.

 

There has been some evidence that the African Grey can speak over 500 words. The Congo African Grey comes from the central part of Africa, while the smaller Timneh African Grey is along the westren coast of Africa. Both birds are extremely intelligent.
