1. A tropical or sub-tropical bird from the order of Psittaciformes which is comprised of some 315 species. Parrots are known for their usually bright colored plumage, large heads, short hooked bill, blunt tongues, strong feet (two in the front and two in the back), and talking and mimicking ability. They are arboreal and eat seeds and fruit. Many are kept as pets and some are endangered and threatened with extinction. Most are very intelligent creatures and contrary to the meaning of parrot as applied to humans below, parrots don't necessarily repeat words mindlessly. It has been shown in research that parrots have the ability to use words to identify objects, describe them, count them and answer questions.
2. To imitate someone. To mimic or repeat their actions or sayings without thinking.
