    i used to get them by the hundreds doing swoops. So many I would make piles for passerbys to grab. Since returning ive killed hundreds of swoops with none dropping. Have they been turned off as loot or am i just that unlucky?

    Unlucky, I think.
    They don't drop as often now.
    Someone on the Dev team isn't thinking enough about how many hours of grind are needed for getting things. See also Moonstone jewelry, leet pickaxes, etc.

    I've only seen 2 rare color parrots in all the years they spawned.

    Back luck vs. lousy odds. :)

    I know you can still get them from Lady M
    and I believe we got one from Irk this week...
    I haven't done swoops in awhile, so not sure about the drop rate there now

    I agree, the drop rates have definitely dropped severely compared to a few years ago.

    i just happened to remember reading this thread.
    i was in working lockpicking on a toon, last couple points and i had my tamer there to watch over my lockpicker and if the swoop came near id kill them.
    on about the 12th one i got a parrot.
    remembered you asking so i thought id let you know that yes they still do spawn for sure!
