There are three types of color-sensitive cones in the eyes, each of which reacts to a specific light – reddish, greenish, or bluish. When you look at a red parrot, your red-sensitive cones get used to the image and stop responding as strongly. When you suddenly look at a white background, the relatively strong response of your blue and green cones creates an image of a blue-green parrot.

Similarly, looking at a blue-green parrot produces an image of a red parrot. As a rule, when looking at any color, an afterimage is formed that is the complement of that color or its opposite.
