Birds do not come much more colourful than the Australian Lorikeet. Loveable, playful birds that eat fruit, vegetables and nectar, they are very messy eaters.

BudgerigarBUDGERIGAR

Budgerigars are native to Australia and the only natural color of these birds in the wild is the yellow and green variety.

However other varieties including the English Budgie which is bigger than the native bird, plus the variety of coloured birds are all bred for the purpose of the pet market.

So you cannot expect to find a blue budgie, white budgies or other in the bush.
