You may read the previous post of Green Parakeet:

Blue Parakeet also known as Blue Budgerigars has scientific name Melopsittacus undulatus, native to Australia.

This little critter was seen in our neighborhood park recently. As reported by Kai Kupperschmidst in Science (2017: How this Popular Pet Store Bird Got its Sky-blue Hue) that this blue color parakeet is very rare in nature.

Hence, this lonely Blue Parakeet is highly possibility not wild one, but belong to someone as a pet. Who know that the bird escaped from its “convenient” cage, then lost the way or doesn’t know to return home.

The bird looks pretty with striped white and blue with vibrant black spots and stripes.

  7. Hello,
    I had a couple of these cute birds when I was young. They can escape if people are not careful. They are not used to being in the wild. Cute bird.
    Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a wonderful new week.
