Parrot, (fr. perroquet): is found in a few modern arms, but the more usual term is the old name Popinjay or Papegay, (fr. Papegaut, ital. Papagallo): the parrot when blazoned proper should be vert, beaked and membered gules. The old form papegai occurs very frequently in the old rolls of arms from Hen III. onwards. One coat bears wood wallises, by which some consider parrots to be meant, but possibly doves. In one case the wings only occur.
