About this book

Beautiful and cheeky, delightful and enchanting, wild or tamed, budgerigars are Australia's gift to the bird world.

They know how to count, can grasp simple grammar and have incredible feats of memory. They're masters of mimicry. They dance and they yawn. They've been coveted by royals, been companions to the great and famous as well as to grannies in suburban kitchens around the world. They've rendered in the finest porcelain, baked in pies and have been depicted on postage stamps of more than thirty nations. And their image has been used to sell everything from whisky to laundry detergent.

Surprising and charming, Budgerigar is a curiosity of everything you ever wanted to know (or realised you never knew) about Melopsittacus undulatus, the beloved budgie.
