Through out this site, we'll be learning together, about Florida's Parrot populations.

We'll be looking at what kinds of Parrots are wild in Florida, and where the populations are.

Maybe you have had a Parrot sighting in Florida.

Please share it with us. You can share by clicking "COMMENTS" on any post.

Some visitors have graced us with more than one photo. Additional pictures can be found in the left column

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!!

Please share your Wild Parrot Pics, in Fl., no matter the species.

Blue-crowned Conure

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.

We had two blue crowned conures eating from our bird feeder today. I may have seen them before but never this close. I couldn't tell what type of parrots were before.

We've been having a small flock of Nanday Conures come to our bird feeder in St. Petersburg for a few months now, but today was the first day I saw Blue Crowned Conures there. Confirmed one on the feeder, and several other probable passing over.

I just moved to Gulfport, FL and we have several pairs of wild parrots here. I've heard or seen them every day. I've managed to photograph a pair of Blue Crown Conures in my front yard.
