NounEdit

jako (plural jakos)

  1. An African gray parrot, Psittacus erithacus, commonly kept as a cage bird.
    • 1878, Jules Verne, Dick Sand: A Captain at Fifteen:
      Of parrots, little Jack only saw ash-gray jakos, with red tails, which abounded under the trees. But these jakos were not new to him.
    • 1882, Rev. P. B. Power, The Home Visitor and District Companion
      Very little is known of these birds in their wild state, although they are brought to Europe in far greater numbers than any other species. We learn from Henglin that the habitat of the Jako extends from the western coast of Africa deep into the heart of that continent []
    • 1908, Chandler Belden Beach, The Students' Reference Work
      The Jako, or gray parrot of Africa, has the capacity for speaking best developed, and the yellow-headed green parrot of Mexico stands second in the list.
