You may notice, throughout this site, that I mention the Quaker Parrot/Monk Parrakeet repeatedly. Well, I may be partial to one species of Parrot, but I am amazed by them all!!

This is a Blue Crown Conure. I was working inside and out, in North Miami. This little guy visited me several times a day. For a Conure, he was fairly quiet, but he did make his "Flock Calls". The calls sounded a bit like a monkey laughing.
Like most Conures, the Blue Crown originates from S. America, in particular, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uraguay. Many other Conures come from this region, as well as the Monk Parakeet(Quaker Parrot). The Monk may, possibly, be the most prevailent Parrot(Parakeet) in Fl.
