Hello My Ceasaur~
Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying the day! We are cooking and I am supervising! Chili is in the crockpot right now and we already finished the veggies for the dog. Mom made pumpkin bread last night. She always stocks up on canned pumpkin so we can have pumpkin bread whenever we like! I like!heheheheh
Please give mom and the flock our love! I love you my zon guy!
Please remember no votes for Sugar just lots of hugs!

Here is today's Parakeet Blog.

Today we are going to learn about the Princess Parakeet. This bird is just gorgeous and look at that tail!! I think these little birds will give Macaws a challenge when it comes to beautiful, long tails!

The Princess Parakeet is also know as the Princess Alexandra Parakeet. It was named after Princess Alexandra of Denmark who eventually became the Princess of Wales.

They live in the desert of Central and Western Australia. It is one of the biggest desert areas on the planet. They like the wooded areas and hang out in Eucalyptus trees. They eat seeds of grasses and shrubs.

These birds are nomads and move around to find water. They are rarely seen in the wild anymore so they have been classified as CITES II. I don't think anyone is sure how many are in the wild because they are hard to spot. They have been bred in captivity since 1889 and seem to be very popular pets in Australia. The prices were from $120 to $500. There are several mutations including Blue, Lime, Lutino, Yellow, Albino and Cinnamon. The mutations did not occur naturally but were manipulated by breeders. There are some listed here on the BC from the US so there are breeders here too!

You can tell the boys from the girls by looking at them. The girls have a paler crown, greyish-blue upper tail coverts and the 3rd primary tail feather does not have an elongated tip like the boys! Still I have to say those tails are just fabulous! Do I sound like I have Tail Envy??? Well I do! I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Thank you for your time! Please get over and leave a vote for Muffin 203943 today. If you have any friends that I might not know, please ask them to come by and leave a vote too! It is appreciated so very much!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
