Quaker Parrots and One Rubber Chicken
I’m not the only bird in our family home. I live with a Quaker Parrot named Kirby.
Quaker Parrots like Kirby are also called Quaker Parakeets, Monk Parakeets or Grey-Breasted Parakeets. Quakers are usually green with a pale grey chest, throat, cheeks and forehead but some of Kirby’s friends are blue or yellow.
When living with pet humans, Quakers usually learn to talk,laugh and even sing.
Quaker Parrots originally came from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina in South America but like me, they are prone to travel. I have seen Quakers in Southern Florida, Brooklyn and even Brussels, Belgium. If you don’t believe me, check out the You Tube videos.
Look at the time! Gotta fly. I promised Kirby that I would meet up with him and some chicks tonight.
