The Timneh African Grey looks very similar to the Congo African Grey. Many people who are new to parrots find it difficult to differentiate between the two species as they look very similar. The more obvious difference between the two parrots is that Timneh Greys are smaller and darker in appearance and also have a smaller black beak with a beige patch located on the upper portion.

Like their larger cousins the Congo African Grey, these parrots also have white eye patches that surround their eyes. Their eye pupils are yellow and black giving these birds a striking appearance. Their wings lack color but showcase many shades of charcoal gray and black. When in flight, lighter shades of gray and white can be seen giving these birds an angelic look. Their feet are large and bulky compared to their bodies and are always tucked back underneath their bodies when in flight.

These birds are not sexually dimorphic. This simply means the males and females cannot visually be differentiated. If an owner or breeder wishes to know the sex of their parrot, the best way is through DNA testing. This is achieved without surgery as only a few feathers are needed from the bird to determine the bird’s gender.
