Blue Bird New Bird

Have you met Sango and Sprite? These two are the newest additions to our flock here at The Parakeet Perch! Although we easily figured out a name for Sango, we were stumped on Sprite, our first green(ish) bird! I say greenish, because, she’s actually got a mixture of blue and green on her abdomen. Here she is with Sango and you can see a bit of what I am talking about.

We ended up running a naming contest on our YouTube channel, and one of our viewers suggested Sprite. We love it! The name actually fits both her color and her bubbly personality. Sango, on the other hand, could have been named Scary. He came to us very shy and nervous, hyperventilating often when I would try to handle him or he wasn’t near Sprite. Thank goodness we got them in a pair! He is coming around, now that he’s housed with my other two male parrots who have shown him a bit of confidence. We can’t wait to see how these two birds turn out as they move towards adulthood. Check them and my other birds out on my YouTube channel, The Parakeet Perch!

What a lovely story about how charismatic a female budgie can be and how an owner can be a trusted friend to their bird. I hope you enjoy the share!
