Parrots not only see life in colors, but they are able to see 99M of colors more than us. While we "only" see 1 million of colors, birds can see 100 millions of them.
The reason is that as tetrachromatic animals (like Amphibians and reptiles) they are able to see in the UV spectrum. So, they use this capability to regulate their calcium cycle on their own, select better males or females, or see the life in more that 4K !! Lol

Did you know it? ;)

Yes. And this is why I suspect Kili sometimes has trouble with color match tricks at first. She will ealk around and try the piece against every receptacle and keep moving on to the next one. She's like, "this isn't exactly the same!" While to me red and red look alike, to her they might be somewhat different shades. So it takes training to overcome this by teaching acceptable generalization.
