Simon is a Quaker (Monk) Parakeet. Like most Quakers, Simon is pretty cage aggressive. Once he is out of his cage, he is very sweet and wants to be as close to you as possible. He is doing much better with stepping up.
Simon is a good bird and would love to be with a flock. He loves to preen and be with other Quakers, too!
