Curious about the Budgerigar Melopsittacus undulatus)?
The wild budgerigar is around 18 cm in length, with a wing span of 30 cm.
With green to yellow body plumage, they have a distinctive yellow face, with a blue-grey bill, iridescent blue cheek patches and 3 black throat patches across each side of their throats. The tail is cobalt (dark-blue) with central yellow flashes.
Visible in flight, their greenish-black flight feathers are yellow fringed. This plumage is interspersed with yellow flashes.
Their diet consists mainly of grass seeds. Highly adaptive, their flocks move from sites as environmental conditions change.
