Hi everyone!
I'm so curios to know from which parts of this world are this forums' members! I think It'll be so interesting!
So I thought about this: you can reply to this post with your country, native language & these two words [bird &parrot] in your native language.

I'll start: Im from Kuwait, my native language is Arabic
Bird =
- طائِر: tayir
- طَير: tayr
- عُءفور: eusfwr
Parrot =
- بَبَغاؑ: babagha

What about loro? I thought it means parrot in Spanish πŸ€”
Yes that too. Periquito is the word for small parrot/budgie and is sometimes used to describe a medium parrot

I'm half Mexican. Along the border, we might say pajaro for bird, and then loro, papagallo, perico for parakeet, and sometimes cotorra... I'm really not sure what the nuances are, because I am a pocha (Latina whose Spanish is lousy). Then there are all the species names. Rickeybirds are called Burrowing Parrots in the Spanish world, or Loro Barranquero, because they nest in limestone cliff burrows.
