Parrots are spectacular birds, brilliant both inside and out. As a child, I had many parakeets. Knowing how to tell the boy budgies from the girls, made me feel brilliant too. If the cere (directly above the upper mandible) was brightly colored, the parakeet was a male. I loved my budgies, especially when their little toes wrapped around my index finger.
Thank you. May you be blessed with one thousand wonderful dreams and view the world with a bird’s eye.
