Where does come from?
Not to be confused with the “party parrot”—an emoji created in the Slack app, around which an entire world called the “cult of the party parrot” revolves—the tame parrot emoji of the Unicode world only came about in 2018.
An especially annoyed Apple user posted this on an Apple forum, mistakenly assuming that the creation of emoji was up to Apple: “We need parrot emojis. You guys took our gun so it’s the least you could do. All I want it to be able to put a parrot emoji at the end of a text when I talk about my favorite pet.”
After that angry rant … the parrot emoji was approved as part of Unicode 11.0 in 2018 and added to Emoji 11.0 in 2018.
By the way, another word for parrot is psittacine, and they are among the most intelligent of birds, along with ravens, magpies, and and jays.
Who uses ?
From pirates to tropical vacations and a love for pet parrots (?) … there are a lot of occasions for the parrot emoji!

A parrot is not a parakeet, but, hey, no judgment!
