Make and hang this colorful Beaded Parrot to hang from your backpack or purse. You can also make them as gifts for friends or family. A great idea would be to make them and donate as outlined in this post from our sister site DIY to Donate.
As a general rule, the larger the bird, the longer the expected lifespan. Some parrots live as long as 75 years. Source: The Spruce Pets – How Long Do Parrots and Other Birds Live.
