Parrots are found in warm climates all over most of the world. There are approximately 350 species of parrots; they vary widely in size, shape, and color but have similarities as well. All parrots have curved beaks and all are zygodactyls, meaning they have four toes on each foot, two pointing forward and two pointing backward. National Geographic Parrots presents a colorful collection of these charismatic birds. Parrots featured in this year's calendar are: Hyacinth macaw; Blue and yellow macaw; African grey parrot; Palm cockatoo; Rainbow lorikeet; Sulphur crested cockatoo; Scarlet macaw; Jandaya parakeets; Harlequin macaw; Alexandrine parakeet; Red-and-green macaws; Golden parakeet. Each outstanding image is accompanied by a large grid with moon phases and international holidays. National Geographic supports vital work in conservation, research, exploration, and education. This calendar includes a 3-year at-a-glance page and is earth friendly, printed with soya-based inks on FSC certified paper.
