Budgerigar Parakeet


BUDGERIGAR PARAKEET
Melopsittacus undulatus

Walk among hundreds of brightly colored Australian Budgerigar parakeets (Budgies) as they free fly in our large Parakeet Landing Aviary. These totally tame and affectionate little birds will leap on you and take the millet seed offered from popsicle sticks, which are available for sale at the Gift Shop or purchase at the Aviary. A great opportunity for beautiful photographs that the whole family will always cherish.
