The Parrot Pirates are Birds introduced in Shipwrecked DLC. They are versions of Parrot wearing pirate hats, similar to Wolly the Parrot from the intro when a new world is started.

They appear at random times on the screen instead of a normal Parrot and instead of leaving Seeds behind like normal Birds do, they instead leave behind 1 Dubloon when they fly away. When around the player, they will taunt the player. Parrot Pirates have a small sanity aura, restoring 25 sanity per minute. Like other birds, Parrot Pirates are attracted to seeds, and they can be captured using a Bird Trap or low damage ranged attacks.

When picked up they cannot be murdered for a Morsel or a Feather, however they can be cooked over fire to obtain a cooked Morsel. They can be imprisoned in a Bird Cage, and like normal Birds, they produce Eggs for giving them Meats, and seeds for giving them Fruits or Vegetables. While being carried in the inventory, they will comment on player actions, much like Lucy the Axe does. They will not speak when they are in a bird cage, however.

They take 1 blast from the Ice Staff to be frozen and 1 Sleep Dart to be put to sleep.
