Meyer's parrots display a dull brown head, back and tail, green or blue-green abdomen, blue rump and bright yellow markings on the carpal joint of the wings. Most subspecies have some yellow on the top of the head as well.
Meyer's are mellow and will easily interact with all members of the family. They are not great talkers and are actually considered one of the quietest parrots. Described as a “go with the flow” parrot, Meyer’s parrots are not as active or athletic as other Poicephalus. Meyer’s parrots have the comical, playful and animated personality of larger parrots, but without the cost, mess or noise typically associated with bigger pet parrots. They are an all around great companion parrot!
