Budgerigar

Budgerigar

A small long-tailed parrot which is popular as a pet due to its playful, vocal nature. 

In captivity they can be a variety of colours; blues, yellows, whites and greys, but naturally they are green and yellow with black markings.  You can tell the gender by looking at the colour around the nostrils (royal blue for males and white or brown for females).
