20 years ago Quaker was found in a parking lot. Obviously someone's pet his clipped wings had just started growing back giving him enough flight to escape.
A month after coming home with me he began to say his name Quaker.
Before that I never considered myself a bird person. Life has never been the same since.
Quaker is a character, a strong personality. His favorite food is chicken, tuna, pasta and eggs, to name a few.
Today was bath day and time to clean his cage. With our pleasant weather Quaker spent his afternoon on the screened patio listening to the birds outdoors.
There are large communities of these Quaker parrots in Florida, and in some Northeast states. They build very large nests usually consisting of 3 rooms, a bird condo.
Also known as Monk Parakeets, in some states they are illegal since they can destroy crops.
