I tried to simulate what a parrot would look like if it had to adapt to live in an urban environment. I based a lot of my changes off the modern-day pigeon. My new parrot has a smaller beak, because its food will not be as hard to open. It also has a smaller tail because there is less obstacles in a city it will need to dodge. However, the biggest change was the fact that I drastically changed the color scheme. The parrot went from a large variety of colors to gray and a hint of blue. This change was necessary because these new parrots have to blend into their new surroundings. Even though it is unlikely that the parrot will find any predators in its new environment it would benefit them when scavenging for food to not be as noticeable to people.
