Quaker ParakeetQuaker  Parakeet

The quaker parakeet is a green bird with grey feathers on neck and forehead. Variations include a blue color and a very rare yellow color. The quaker parakeet originates from southeastern Brazil and Argentina. With a personality that has no rival the quaker parakeet is becoming increasingly popular. The reason the quaker parakeet is outlawed in several states is because it is considered a potential agricultural pest. A quaker parakeet owner like myself can attest to the fact that this special little treasure is in a class of its own.
