The Budgerigars are coming
The much loved Budgerigar is one of Australia’s favourite birds. Many millions are kept as pets in Australia and in many other countries of the world. One of the most amazing wildlife scenes in Australia is to see a large flock of hundreds and even thousands of Budgerigars. I’ve only even witnessed this on one occasion; it’s marked in my memory as one of the special birding moments.
Over the last week or so there have been numerous reports of these beautiful birds moving into the southern parts of Australia, including close to my home here in Murray Bridge. I’ll have to keep a special lookout for any that come our way.
If you have one of these beautiful Australian parrots as a pet, tell me about it in the comments section.
