Wild At Home

There’s never a dull moment when quaker parrots are in the house.

By Jon-Mark & Jo Davey

quakerThe sun is rising just over the beach. The ocean breeze fills the air as the surf kicks up the sand and salt. Just a block north, from overhead, comes the sound of wild quaker parrots stirring for the day. Members of the flock peek out from carefully crafted nest holes in their parrot condominiums in the palm trees to greet the sun.

Not too far away, the rising sun hits a set of bright yellow curtains, at the home where six quakers live as companion parrots.

The morning starts with a soft, verbal ”Good morning, babies,” to announce our approach to their room, and the yellow curtains are opened to let the sun in. Cage covers are removed and hung on their peg on the wall near the door. Each bird stretches its legs and wings and begins the day with the quaker-esq cheerful morning greeting: “Ack ack  ack!”
