Is this a parrotlet?

by tara

I just inheritated a bird and I have no idea what kind it is. Please help me so I can make sure this bird gets the right food. It has a greyish white head, lime greenish yellow(almost flourescent) around his feet darker green along his back and dark and light blue feathers on his wings. His band on his foot is orange if that helps.From everything I've read I think he's a parrotlet, but he has the personality of a conure. He purrs and kisses with the occasional loud squawk.

Found It

Thank you Tracie after hours of scouring the net I found out that my newly acquired bird is a Quaker Parrot! Yeah! and now that he's comfortable around us we've also learned that he speaks!

Hello Tara,

Without a picture it would be very hard to help you and tell you for sure. Please look at our Parrotlet page under Parrot Profiles to the top left of your computer screen. Maybe you when you see other Parrotlets you will be able to tell for sure.
