Hello Hattie~
I hope you are enjoying your day! It's starting out cloudy and dark here but I know the sunshine will show up eventually.
I have just finished my toast and I'm ready to get some serious blogging done! I am having such a fun time learning about all the parakeets. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.
Have a perfect day!

Here is today's parakeet blog!

Today I am going to introduce you to the Derbyan Parakeet. This parakeet is also know as the Lord Derby parakeet. It was named to commemorate Edward Smith-Stanley, the 13th Earl of Derby. He was what they called a naturalist and loved to study animals. At the time of his death in June of 1851, he has 1272 birds living on his estate!

Derbyan Parakeets are forest dwellers who come from Tibet, India and China. They are the rarest species of Psittacula in Asia. They are about the same size as the Alexandrne Parakeet. They live in the forest and eat leaf buds, seeds, blossoms and fruit.

They are extremely popular as pets in China and can go for as high as $1500. They were in danger of becoming threatened because of their popularity, but the World Parrot Trust stepped in to help them. There is no law prohibiting capture of these birds yet but hopefully there will be soon.

Derbyan Parakeets are shy by nature and prefer the company of other birds. They need to be socialize when they are very young in order to be kept as pets. They are very intelligent ~ just like the rest of us! They are great talkers, if taught early and their voices are similar to Amazons! They also love to chew!
Okay! Sounds like an Amazon and loves to chew! I LOVE THESE GUYS!

Like most of the Asiatic Parakeets, you can tell the boys from the girls just by looking at them. The boys have red upper beaks and the girls have an all black beak. You can see pictures in my gallery! These birds have some awesome feathers! Their tails are nearly as long as their bodies!

Thank you for your time and thank you for your vote for out next BOTM ~ Coach Muffin #203943!!
