How Long Do Parrots Live

So how long do parrots live?

Obviously, it depends on the species.

Parrots (including cockatoos) are the longest living birds on Earth. Larger species live up to 80 years old, but even smaller live at least 10 and more commonly 15-20, which is already a lengthy life for a bird.
