The first Parrakeet (AMc–34) was built in 1934 by Al Larson, Terminal Island, Calif. as the Jackie Sue; acquired by the Navy 14 November 1940; and placed in service 29 April 1941.

 

After harbor and coastal service along the California coast, Parrakeet was struck from the Naval Register 22 December 1944 and transferred to the War Shipping Administration for disposal 5 February 1945.

 

Parrakeet (AM–419), an Admirable class minesweeper, was scheduled for construction by Defoe SB Co., Bay City, Mich., but her construction was cancelled 11 August 1945.
