Feathered Friends - Pacific Parrotlet

Today, we feature the super cute Pacific Parrotlet! They are an average size of only 5 inches long. Pacific Parrotlets are among the smallest of all parrots that are kept as pets. Don't let their size fool you though - they have a lot of personality! They are native to Peru and Ecuador in South America. Typically, a Pacific Parrotlet is green with some blue feathers. There are some color mutations though - cobalt and yellow being some of the most popular.
