Hello Amando~
I hope you are enjoying your day! It's very pretty here but it still feel a bit cool this morning. Today is the last day our complex pool is open so there are tons of people already over there! I'm going to miss yelling at those silly humans splashing in that big bathtub!
It's cooking day since mom starts her work week tonight so I'm hoping for some corn bread. Just a bunch of veggies and a casserole so far!
Enjoy your day and I hope it's spectacular!

Here is today's Parakeet Blog~

Today is the last Parakeet blog! I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have. It's been a pleasure to learn all about these wonderful birds and a pleasure to be part of Muffin's campaign!

I am ending the Parakeet blogs with the most popular bird in the US ~ The American Budgerigar! There are 120 species of Parakeets and may subspecies also! I did a little research on Budgie clubs and shows and I am sharing that with you today!

The two biggest Budgerigar clubs in the US are the American Budgerigar Society and the Budgerigar Association of America. The American Budgerigar Society and been around since 1941. They are having their annual show on September 19 through the 21st in Nashville. The 2012 winner is pictured in my gallery.

The Budgerigar Association of America is holding it's annual show this weekend in Tampa Florida. They were established in 1999.

To show a Budgie at a competition, you have to have breed that Budgie yourself. They have all different kinds of levels from beginners to experts. They have special cages you must use for competition. There is a picture of one in my gallery.

The Budgies have to be between 8 1/2 inches to 9 1/2 inches from head to the tip of their tail. The perfect size for American competition in 9 inches. The feathers have to be symmetrical and there must be 2 long tail feathers. The bird must sit perfectly still and alert on the perch. If they move around, they get points deducted. Obviously, there will never, ever be an Amazon competition! hehehehehehe

Just like with dog shows, there has to be a proven pedigree with the Budgies. It has become a very popular hobby here in the United States as well as in England, Canada and Germany. I think all my Budgie friends here on the BC deserve Blue Ribbons even if they don't have a pedigree!! Enjoy the pictures of some of our friends in my gallery!

It has been an honor to share these blogs with you! I thank you all so very much for your support of Muffin 203943! It's the last day so let us send her off to the castle in style!

Love, Hugs and a vote for you ~ Sugar
