Greetings from New Jersey

Hello, everyone!

Thought that I'd pop in and introduce myself

My name is Eliza and share my home with a golden-winged parakeet (Brotogeris chrysopterus) named Pickle. Bigger than a parrotlet but smaller than a conure and personality-wise, behavior-wise and noise-wise, somewhere in between.

Looking forward to exploring the board and getting to know everyone!

Welcome to the forum Eliza. I'd love to see pics too. I have never seen a golden-winged parakeet.

Bigger than a peeplet and smaller than conure and somewhere in between on the noise and behavior? I picture LOUD gravelly PEEPS and super feisty! I would love to hear more!
We have 4 conures and a peeplet.

peeplet! Our parrotlet, Midge, is Queen of the Peeps, she just does that little peep all day! And if you say peep to her... It never ends!
