In North America culture, the name “paakeet” has been giving to the species of parrot properly known as the “budgerigal” or the “budgie, for short. Technically, a parakeet is any small species of parrot with a long tail, so it can correctly be called the “budgerigar parakeet”. Confusing? Yes. Let’s just call them parakeets.

The melopsittacus undulates, or parakeet for us non-scientific folks, is a small parrot about seven inches long with a weight of approximately thirty to forty grams. Native to the grasslands and scrublands of Australia, this bird has been known to travel to many wooded and coastal areas when food and water are in short supply in their preferred surroundings.

Under proper conditions the parakeet can live as long as fifteen years, depending on their diet and other factors. On average, the life expectancy of this bird is ten to fifteen years.

Parakeets have gained much attention for some of their astounding accomplishments. For example a the Guinness Book of World Records documented the largest parrot vocabulary at 1,728 words and phrases.

The parakeet is highly trainable and very intelligent. Just like all parrots, it will need to be trained accordingly. While they are not capable of landing a bit that will send you the local emergency room for x-rays and stitches and aren’t load enough to cause any hearing damage, it does have one distinct advantage: it can fly.

Natural evader and flight master, which is not an uncommon thing for a small bird, we suggest not giving chase through the house. Unfortunately wing clipping and nail grooming are requirements for this small bird. We suggest building up a relationship with the animal prior to reaching into its cage and grasping them for routine maintenance. If you can gain the parakeets trust, this will be a much more simplified task, but if you scare the bird you’ll build feelings of mistrust and it won’t want to be around you.

Parakeets are without question, extremely intelligent creatures and live in flocks numbers in the thousands. Communication among this species, as one would expect, use creative pitches of chirps to stay in close contact with each other, to track down their off-springs and to warn of danger. In captivity, the use the same chirps they are pets.

A number of species of Parrot can be quite loud – including cockatiels and macaws – parakeets on the other hand are not extremely loud. If you neglect them they will cry out, but if you take good care of them, they will chirp away happily.

Similar to a cat purr, the most common sound heard by a parakeet is what we refer to as a contented warble. They typically do this when they are falling asleep, listening to music, hanging out on your shoulder, preening themselves.

In the wild, no noise is synonymous with a predator lurking around. So, we highly suggest that you leave the radio or play some music from home entertainment unit. Did we mention that parakeets love music? As a matter of fact, a parakeet will sing along with songs to the best of their ability, often adding their own voices.

Like a re-run of the move Mars Attacks the parakeet is no stranger to the Ack-Ack-Ack and is form of Parakeet talk. Your parakeet is simply expressing his or her excited and happy nature.

A FWEEP or a high pitched yelp is sort of a distress call that goes out which is commonly heard when a pair of parakeet is separated from each other. This is sort of a “lost! Lost!” cry to inform his or her parakeet pals to come find him.

With some patience and of course a willing parakeet participant, you can teach your parakeet how to talk. Male parakeets are much easier inclined and thought than a female parakeet. If your parakeet was hand raised, then these are often the easiest to teach. If you parakeet doesn’t learn to talk, it will still be able to communicate to you in its own fweeps and warbles.

Parakeets are extremely loving and smart and have an interesting array of sounds. Its not uncommon to hear a parakeet make noises which surround them in everyday environments such as cell phones ringing, beeping sound and more.
