Meet Piccolo!Piccolo lives in New Jersey with Grace.Piccolo just turned one year old on October 6th, 2015. He’s an English budgerigar. His favorite pastime is chatting and eating millet (not necessarily in that order!).He shares his cage with another male budgie named Kalani who just joined the flock a couple of months ago. His other flock mates include two cockatiels and a Bebe parrot. Piccolo also resides with two dogs, two cats and a guinea pig, as well as two teenagers, a tween and two adults (he’s very bonded to the adult female). You can find Piccolo the budgie (and his pals!) on his facebook page. Stop by and say, “Hello!”
I didn’t realize their head feathers get bigger over time. He sure is a cutie!
His forehead was made for kisses. And he likes scritches, too. Such a cutie!
hee hee That’s me! My silly human/Person-al Assistant thought this was going to be posted on Cooper’s Facebook page, so she didn’t ‘find’ it until today. Thanks so much for adding me as one of Cooper’s Cuties. I’m excited and humbled.
Oh, and due to the fact that I’m an English, or Show Budgie, as some of you may know, we were bred to be a bit bigger and have longer feathers on our heads, or crests (you can always do an online search to see other examples). This is why my head and facial feathers are so fluffy-looking and it’s sometimes difficult to see my eyes and beak. 😉 But, I’m still the same species as every other budgerigar (aka parakeet in the United States. The term parakeet actually encompasses more than just budgies, thus its use in the US is incorrect).
Thanks for joining our virtual flock, Piccolo! It’s great to have a smart and handsome fellow contributing.
