Hello BB~
I hope you are having a lovely Sunday. I love Sundays! Nice and quite and just hanging out with mom. The cat and the dog are both sleeping now so I have mom all to myself! Yes! Perfect day!
Sweet Shuttle! It's so cool that you have your very own!
Here's hoping your day is just as perfect!
Remember the hugs and no votes for me! I love the hugs so very much!

Here is today's Parakeet Blog!

Today's featured Parakeet is pure self indulgence on my part! This little Parakeet is called the Tui Parakeet.
If you look at the pictures in my gallery you will see that this little bird is a Mini Me! Such a beautiful bird!hehehehehehe They are a miniature version of a Yellow-Crowned Amazon. I am a Yellow-napped Amazon but it's close enough!

The Tui Parakeet lives along the Amazon River in Brazil, Ecuador, and Bolivia. They live in the forest there and nest in termite mounds in the trees. They eat seeds, fruit, nectar, flowers, minerals, grit and insects. They don't seemed to have the refined pallet of an Amazon but that's okay! They live to be 35 years old and they are not on the endangered list. They are very small-only about 6 1/2 inches-and have a wedge-shaped tail. You have to DNA them to see who is the girl and who is the boy!

They were imported to the United States in the 60's and 70's until the ban on importing birds was passed. It doesn't look like anyone bred them because they are nearly non-existent in the US now. I saw a report about some wild flocks in Florida but it was not specific as to where they were. There was a blog on the BC from a lady in Canada who had 2 pairs and was interested in breeding them.

Thank you for your time and thank you for the votes for Muffin! Only a week to go so please continue voting and have your friends come by too!

Love, hugs and a vote ~ Sugar
