Budgies or the Budgerigar (a word no one uses) are wonderful birds.

They are small, come in many exotic bright colors, live a long time, and are FUN!!! They are highly social birds and watching them interact is very entertaining. They are also easy keepers and won't break your budget--you get a lot of bang for your buck when you buy a budgie.
They can be tamed and even taught to speak very clearly! If you are looking for a parrot that has personality and is playful, but you don't want the hassle and demands of a large bird, the budgie is your bird!

When thinking of buying a budgie take into consideration the fact that they can easily escape and get away. It is advisable to get a young bird rather than an old one as they don't live for too long and tend to have life spans of between 4 - 7 years sometimes shorter.
