Budgerigars in the Wild

A small flock of Budgerigars roosting in a shrub while they judge if it is safe to come down to the nearby waterhole in Kings Creek in the Northern Territory, Australia. Budgies are native to Australia and can still be seen in the wild in the outback. Wild birds normally have the green and yellow colouration.

  1. They used to be such a popular pet in the UK, pstticularly where space was limited. Now they are mostly kept by people who breed and show them. My grandad's neighbour, who was from Pontypool, had a budgie called Ponty, half a century ago. They never established themselves in the wild, thank goodness, though you often used to see an escapee. They must have hated the isolation of a cage. P.
