Welcome to Lars Bodin's Encyclopedia of Parrots.

The first version of this encyclopedia was started in 1999 but in Danish only. In 2017 the encyclopedia went through a major update with a new modern layout, new content, new server etc. With the improved logging I became aware that the encyclopedia was visited by people from all over the world and I decided to start working on an English version; this work started in December 2017.

This encyclopedia currently describes 63 species and 137 pages with overview of the various genera, general information, English and latin index etc. Danish readers should check out the Danish version, which currently contain descriptions of 179 species and subspecies.

I will continue updating The Encyclopedia of Parrots with descriptions and photos of more species whenever I have some free time for this project. My ultimate goal is that this Encyclopedia will contain information and photos of all parrot species.
