Their markings are beautiful and those bright colorful beaks, and super long tail make them truly stunning.
Alexadrines are not a cuddly bird. The do not like to be petted but will give kisses. The ones I have met spoke clearly but had a limited vocabulary. The males have a beautiful song. They are affectionate and social but hands off. So not for those that need a tactile experience.
They are known to become very aggressive during hormonal seasons. Some have been known to kill their mates.
