Introduction

PARROTS OF FLORIDA


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.

The Monk Parakeet (Quaker Parrot)

My work takes me through a Tri-County area. Throughout these three Counties, I know of hundreds of QP (Monk) nests. Last week, I had a couple of days off, so I went 'birding'. I started in SE Hollywod, and moved NW. I took pics in Hollywood, Dania Beach, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, and Boca Raton. Here are a couple of them.
Notice the size of the closest nest, compared to the size of the cars.
