Roses Bourke Parakeets
Rubino Roses Bourke Parakeet
Known as a very sweet, gentle, and good-natured species, Bourke’s Parakeets make good pets when hand fed as babies, which allows them to bond with their human caretakers. These are intelligent birds but are also mellow and quiet, especially compared to other parrot species.
Bourke’s Parakeets are an excellent introductory bird for those new to hookbills, both for their calm demeanor as well as their ability to entertain themselves.
They are small to medium-sized birds, measuring between 7 and 8 inches in length from the beak to the ends of the tail feathers. Healthy Bourke’s Parakeets weigh slightly less than 2 ounces once they are fully grown.
If you’re looking for a little bird with a big personality, you’re going to love these guys. Here is everything you need to know about conures.
Originating in southern Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean Islands, conures are a medium-sized breed of parrot. But don’t let their small size fool you; conures are active birds that need lots of socialization and human interaction.
Although they are on the smaller side when it comes to parrot species, conures have big personalities. Known to be friendly and clownish, these birds love spending outside of their cage where they can be around their humans. When properly socialized, they form close bonds with everyone in their “flock.” This flock often extends to anyone living under the same roof as them.
Cockatiels are among the most popular pet birds. Small parrots with a variety of color patterns and a crest, they are attractive as well as friendly and easy to tame. Because of their small size, cockatiel care and taming is easier than some other parrot species. They are capable of mimicking speech, although they can be difficult to understand. However, they are quite good at whistling and can often be taught to whistle tunes.
Parakeets ( Budgies)
The budgie, or budgerigar, is most commonly referred to as the more generic term “parakeet” in the United States. The wild budgie is similar to the birds we see today in pet shops, though smaller (between 6 and 7 inches long), and only found in the nominate color, green. Its Latin name means, roughly, “song bird with wavy lines,” which is a pretty good description of this popular bird.
Naturalist John Gould and his brother-in-law, Charles Coxen, brought Budgies to Europe around 1838. Europeans became charmed with the birds, which bred readily, making them a staple pet in wealthy homes. The Budgie was displayed at the Antwerp Zoo in Belgium around 1850, and began to gain in popularity, not only with the wealthy. Australia banned exportation of Budgies in 1894, and the Europeans had to breed their existing stock in order to continue the hobby. The budgie found its way to America in the late 1920s, but didn’t experience real popularity until the 1950s. Today, it’s the most popular bird in the world
