Hello Martini~
I hope you are having a spectacular day! Cloudy here but I'm not sure if we are getting rain or not. Mom went to the market yesterday but she still has a few things to pick up today! I'm munching on an apple while I get my notes done!
I think it would be for the best if no bird left me a vote until after the end of the month. I appreciate them all so very much but the objective is to get Muffin to the castle! I thought that once you were BOTM you couldn't be it again, but it looks like it's the same rule with BOTD! You are eligible once a year! I would feel awful if I got in the way of Muffin getting to the castle so please no votes! A hug would be nice!!!!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's filled with lots of fun!

Here is today's Parakeet Blog~

I am very excited to share the Eastern Rosella Parakeet with you today! This bird is spectacular! It seem to have every color of the rainbow on it! They should have called it the RaneBeau Parakeet!hehehehe

This Parakeet is native to South Eastern Australia and Tasmania. The Europeans first saw this bird in the 1700's at Rose Hill in New South Wales and called it the Rosehill Parakeet. It was introduced into New Zealand around 1910. There was some concern about introducing them to a non-native area. There were some that were found to carry Beak and Feather Disease Virus but so far nothing has happened.

Rosella Parakeets are a medium size bird with cute white patches on their cheeks. The boys are brighter in color. The girls are smaller and have duller color but you still need to do a DNA test to be sure. In the wild they eat seeds, fruit, nectar, shoots, buds, leaves and insects. They are mature at 18 months and are said to be extremely aggressive at breeding time.

They are kept as pets and I did find a few breeders in the US and England. They do not like to cuddle and are best kept in a big aviary where they can fly around and just be birds! Even the hand raised ones are not really into cuddling! They seem to go for around $225. I did find quite a few here on the BC but a lot of them were listed as International so they are probably more popular overseas.

I hope you enjoyed today's featured Parakeet and I hope you can check out the pictures in my gallery!
Thank you all for your time and Please be sure to get by Coach Muffin's page 203943 and leave a vote today!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
