Re: What is the longest living parrot breed?

Documented, it was a (Cacatua Moluccensis) salmon-crested cockatoo:

We compiled 87 777 individual parrot records representing
262 species (72% of all parrot species) from ISIS. After
excluding those individuals hatched before the 1800s or that
failed to survive their first day, and species in which no
individuals lived past a year, 83 212 individuals representing
260 species remained for analysis. Parrot species in captivity
ranged dramatically in their maximum and median lifespans.
The highest maximum lifespan recorded was 92 years


for the salmon-crested cockatoo
Cacatua moluccensis. Only

12 species (less than
5% of the 260 species) had an individual live

past 50 years of age. Of all the species held in ISIS institutions,
50% never had an individual live beyond 22 years of
age, and only 30% of these species had a median adult
lifespan greater than or equal to
10 years, even after limiting data to individuals

who survived juvenile mortality (greater than
4 years). In contrast,

when only living animals were considered, 58% of species


had a median age greater than or equal to
10 years.

Re: What is the longest living parrot breed?

I 've heard of a DYH amazon in Alaska reported to be 105 and i believe a Cockatoo in the UK that once belonged to Winston Churchill that was also 105. I think the birds used in the report above where all institutionalized (zoos ,breeders,etc) these others are pet birds that i don't think where covered in that study.

Re: What is the longest living parrot breed?

Correct, that study was compiled from info from zoos. I certainly hope we keep them alive longer in our homes than zoos do, but its hard to prove how old they are. Zoos keep records of when the bird was obtained.

I've heard of 80+ year old zons and macaws but this is just hearsay on my part.

Re: What is the longest living parrot breed?

I believe cockatoos are the most long lived parrot, large macaws can also live a long time, 60+ years!

One of my friend once had a sulphur-crested cockatoo that lived for 89 years!

Winnie had two birds. Neither of them was a too.

One is a B&G Macaw, one is a DYH Amazon. They are both still alive. One is 103, the other 106...

The DYH still swears at Hitler in Winnie's voice...

Re: What is the longest living parrot breed?

There was a Scarlett Macaw at the St. Louis Zoo who lived to be 127, who I think is the oldest recorded bird in captivity.

Amazons, macaws, and toos often live past 100, if you care for them.

My friend has her grandmother's DYH, and that bird is a 90-something.

The oldest bird I ever fostered was a 60-something DYH, and he's still alive and kicking... gotta be in his 70's by now.
