I hope you are having a great day! I am keeping an eye on the gardeners right now and making sure they are mowing the lawns just the way I like them!hehehehehe They will be here most of the day since it takes them nearly 8 hours to do the entire complex!
We are going to get some cleaning done around here today so I will be supervising. When the towels are ready to fold, I'll jump in the basket and help out! I am very good at folding towels.
I hope you enjoy your day!
Here it today's Parakeet Blog.
Today I am going to talk about 2 parakeets. They live in the Andes Mountains in South America. The Sierra Parakeet is also known as the Aymara Parakeet or the Grey-hooded Parakeet. The Mountain Parakeet is also known as the Golden-front Parakeet. Check out their pictures in my gallery!
The Andes Mountains run down the entire length of western South America. At 4400 miles long, they are the longest mountain range on land. The highest peak is at 22,841 feet! It runs through Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia and Venezuela.
The Sierra Parakeet lives at about 9800 feet. The Mountain Parakeet lives at 11,000 feet. The climate along the mountain is very diverse but these birds seem to eat about the same thing as most parakeets. Seeds, buds, fruits and berries. They are both very small parakeets and both are abundant in the wild. The Mountain Parakeet lives closer to the coast than the Sierra Parakeet.
These birds are another kind who are called dimorphic. That means you can tell the girls from the boys by looking at them. The Sierra Parakeet girls are said to have less black on their heads and less blue on their chests. The Mountain Parakeets girls do not have yellow on their forehead.
As for keeping these little birds as pets, I did not find any breeders in North America. There were a few ads for them in England and I saw a You-Tube video of a pet Sierra Parakeet from Japan.
