I do hope you enjoy your day!
Here is today's Parakeet blog.
Today I am going to share the Elegant Parakeet with you! This little bird is very pretty and elegant too!
They come from Australia which seems to be a birdie paradise! As you can tell by my blog, Australia and South America have the largest populations of parrots in the world. They both have the right kind of climates for us birds.
The Elegant Parakeet, like the Regent Parakeet lives in the Southwest and the Southeast of Australia. In the west they even live on Kangaroo Island although they leave it during the winter and go to the mainland. There have been no studies as to why the flocks are separated by the rest of the continent of Australia but there may be soon since aviculturist want to solve this mystery.
They say you can tell the boys from the girls by looking at them. The girls are a duller color of green, do not have orange patches on their tummies and have a narrower blue band. I birdsonally think if you are going to keep these birds as a pet, you should DNA them. The boys don't always have the orange patch so it could be tricky to figure out who is the girl and who is the boy!
In the wild they like open country. They are part of the "Grass Parrot" group and like to forage on the ground. They eat grass seeds, herbaceous plants, fruits, blossoms and the occasional bug!
They are thriving in their environment. They are very popular pets in Australia, England, and I even found a few breeders here in the US and Canada. They cost anywhere From $100 t9 $250
Thank you for your time! I appreciate It so very much!
Ony a few days left and Muffin will be packing up for the castle! Thank you so much for your suppot!
