Blossom-Headed Parakeet Species Profile
Traits:  Blossom-headed parakeets are rare and therefore are not commonly kept as pets. The male blossom-headed parakeet has beautiful coloring, including a pink head that becomes pale blue on the back of the crown, nape and cheeks, as well as a narrow black neck collar and a black chin stripe. As a general rule, Psittacula species such as the blossom-headed parakeet are friendly and noisy. They have very good talking and whistling abilities.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Psittacula parakeets can form bonds with one person (usually their owners) and, because of this, could refuse to interact with other people — they may even bite people other than their owner. They can also exhibit jealousy of other family members or pets. For this reason, positive reinforcement training is a good idea for Psittacula parakeets. Owners should be cautious in multiple-pet bird homes.

Expert Advice
"Quiet parakeet, seldom heard; initially very shy, later confiding."
