Parrots are a broad order of more than 350 birds. Macaws, Amazons, lorikeets, lovebirds, cockatoos and many others are all considered parrots. Although there are obvious differences among these birds, there are similarities as well. All parrots have curved beaks and have four toes on each foot, two pointing forward and two projecting backward. Parrots are found in warm climates all over most of the world.
