green one-- mid sized
Hello kind bird people!

We just got a medium sized parrot from someone here in Mexico where we live (not a wild one-- it is a bred bird...)

He told us it is a perico peruviano-- a peruvian parrot, but cannot figure out really what type of parrot he is-- can someone help us identify this pretty bird?

Hello and welcome to the forum.....

Your new feathered friend is a Monk Parakeet, also known as the Quaker Parrot and its scientific name is Myiopsitta monachus.....

Some of these parrots will learn to talk, but it is up to the bird if they want to talk or not.....
Looks like a Quaker to me. I don't see much about Mexico, but they are illegal in CA. They are fun little parrots with the ability to talk and they are interesting in that they build large communal nests.
Quaker parrot or Monk parrakeet, same thing and he or she looks like my Sweetie Pie You will love them they are quite the little characters.:)
