Native to Australia, the budgerigar is one of the country's most popular domestic birds. When it comes to feeding your budgerigar, it's important to refill its seed dish every day. Before filling, you should also remove any remaining seed - which may include empty and dry husks. Of course, always make sure your bird has plenty of fresh, clean water available, and you should thoroughly clean the water container at least once a week.
Being native, budgerigars also respond well to native flora. In fact, they often love Eucalyptus leaves. For this reason, it's a good idea to regularly supplement their seed with a few fresh leaves and branches. As well as providing variety, this will also keep your bird entertained.
Understanding Bird Body Language
You can learn a lot about birds by watching their body language. A bird that whistles or sings is generally happy, safe and content, whereas one with its head down, body feathers ruffled and tail feathers flared can be feeling quite angry and aggressive. Very loud chatter can also be a sign that a bird wants more attention, as can wing flapping. Some birds will also tap their feet as a sign of dominance over their territory.
